Polar Amplification of Climate Change Across Hemisphere and Seasons: Causes and Constraints Workshop
17 January 2024 - 19 January 2024https://usclivar.org/meetings/polar-amplification-workshop
Bringing together Arctic and Antarctic scientific communities to elucidate the asymmetries in the polar responses to anthropogenic climate change and identify actions to reduce projection uncertainties.
January 17-19, 2024 in Boulder, CO and virtual
The aim of the Polar Amplification of Climate Change Across Hemisphere and Seasons: Causes and Constraints Workshop is to bring together researchers studying Arctic and Antarctic climate change from observational and modeling perspectives (ranging from paleoclimate to climate change projections) to cross-pollinate and forge new collaborations that accelerate our understanding of polar amplification.
The objectives of the workshop are to:
identify knowledge gaps and deficiencies in model diagnostics that limit our understanding of climate change in both polar regions;
prioritize these knowledge gaps as areas for future research;
identify strategies, tactics, and data needs (e.g., process studies, collaborative modeling activities, satellite missions) to address the identified knowledge gaps;
identify candidate observational emergent constraints on key polar amplification processes; and
identify steps for enhancing community collaboration.
