EGU2018: Clouds and precipitation in the Polar Regions: sources, processes and impacts

Irina Gorodetskaya-2
Dear Colleagues,

This is a friendly reminder about EGU-2018 session CR8.1/AS1.42 Clouds
and precipitation in the Polar Regions: sources, processes and impacts:

http://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2018/session/26469

The abstract deadline is approaching: 10 January 2018, 13:00 CET.

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
precipitation. This year we would like to emphasize observational and
modeling activities planned within the Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP,
www.polarprediction.net) and encourage related contributions.

With best New Year wishes!

Session conveners
Irina, Susanne, Tom, Nicole, Manfred
