Call

Cycle II, Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP)

The objective of this project is to develop improved operational products and services relating to forecasting of Arctic sea ice on time scales from a month to seasons. These sea ice forecasts will be based on ensembles of global climate model simulations, initialized with observations in the manner of weather predictions, from WMO’s Global Producing Centres (GPCs) for Long-Range Forecasts.
