1-SeaIcePredition-HawkinsA workshop will be held from 8-10 April at the University of Reading in the UK to discus polar climate variability & predictability on seasonal to decadal timescales. The workshop is part of the WCRP Polar Climate Predictability Initiative 3 (PCPI).

Abstracts for talks or posters are encouraged for sessions on understanding causes of polar climate variability in observations and models, idealised predictability studies, operational polar forecasts and use of polar predictions by stakeholders. There will be a focus on sea ice, but contributions on other climate variables are welcomed.

Deadline: Friday 20th February – please email abstracts to: e.hawkins@reading.ac.uk
