Final Implementation Plan for the WWRP Polar Prediction Project

Description

Final Implementation Plan for the WWRP Polar Prediction Project Available

There has been a growing interest in the polar regions in recent years, because of concerns about amplification of anthropogenic climate change. Furthermore, increased economic and transportation activities in polar regions are leading to more demands for sustained and improved availability of integrated observational and predictive weather, climate and water information to support decisionmaking. However, partly as a result of a strong emphasis of previous international efforts on lower and middle latitudes, many gaps in weather, sub-seasonal and seasonal forecasting in polar regions hamper reliable decision making.

The aim of the WWRP Polar Prediction Project (WWRP-PPP) therefore is to “Promote cooperative international research enabling development of improved weather and environmental prediction services for the polar regions, on time scales from hours to seasonal.” This project constitutes the hours to seasonal research component of the emerging WMO Global Integrated Polar Prediction System (GIPPS). A closely related WCRP Polar Climate Predictability Initiative covers GIPPS research on seasonal to decadal time scales.
