This week will showcase the successes and achievements of the Polar Prediction Project (PPP)—a 10-year research activity of WWRP that has enabled a significant improvement in environmental prediction capabilities for the polar regions and beyond, by coordinating a period of intensive observing, modelling, verification, user-engagement and education activities.
We would like to thank the organizers as well as all contributors to this exciting event and especially Professor Thomas Jung, Chair of the Polar Prediction Project, for all his work in directing this programme of research and in shaping this final conference in celebration of the contributions of all who have worked towards this project.
It is timely, at the end of this project, for the community to come together at this Summit to discuss and reflect on the achievements made in weather and environmental prediction in both the Arctic and Antarctic. We look forward to the vibrant talks and discussions of participants and speakers to this conference and in reflecting on how this might shape the future of polar research. We wish you a pleasant and fruitful summit.
