Workshop report now available - Dynamics of Atmosphere-Ice-Ocean Interactions in the High Latitudes

The report on the workshop Dynamics of Atmosphere-Ice-Ocean Interactions in the High Latitudes has now been published online in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society

From 23-27 March, 90 scientists from 13 different countries gathered in the scenic fjord village of Rosendal, Norway, in order to discuss our current understanding of the physical processes for weather and climate prediction, significantly relevant for PPP and YOPP. Participants agreed that for a comprehensive coupling of atmospheric processes with sea ice and ocean conditions in future forecast models corresponding time scales need to be considered carefully. Advances in forecasting skills also means to better understand the human impact to natural weather and climate systems.
