About the workshop:

Goal: Summarize our fundamental understanding and description of small-scale processes in the coupled atmosphere-ocean-ice climate system at high latitudes in order to assess and reduce bias and uncertainties in weather prediction and climate models.

The workshop will be limited to ca. 90 participants. Limited travel funding will be available to support a selection of early career scientists (Post-docs within 5 years of PhD and PhD students).

Conference registration fees are covered by the sponsors. Special hotel rate and full board (per night): 1550,00 (single) / 1250,00 (double) NOK.
