This session aims at bringing
together researchers using observational (in-situ, aircraft,
ground-based and satellite-based remote sensing) and/or
modeling approaches to improve our understanding of polar
tropospheric clouds, precipitation and related mechanisms.
Contributions are invited on various relevant processes
including drivers of the cloud microphysics at high latitudes,
sources of cloud nuclei both at local and long range, linkages
of polar clouds/precipitation to the moisture sources and
transports, relationship to the large-scale and mesoscale
atmospheric dynamics (including teleconnections), as well as
the effects that the clouds/precipitation in the polar regions
have on the polar and global climate system, surface mass
balance and sea ice. Papers including new methodologies
specific to polar regions are encouraged, such as improving
polar cloud/precipitation parameterizations in atmospheric
models and advancing observations of polar clouds and
year we would like to emphasize observational and modeling
within the Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP, www.polarprediction.net)
encourage related contributions.
Young scientist/student presentations are especially
encouraged and we will reserve several oral units for such
papers in our session.
The deadline for abstract submission
is Wednesday, January 10th 2018 @1300CET.
The deadline for application for
financial support is Friday, December 1st 2017.
Please forward this announcement to
anyone who may have interest in the session. We look forward
to receiving your contribution and seeing you in Vienna.
