Science day


GOVST-VIII Science Day

For day 4 , Thursday 9 Nov 2017, of the Annual meeting the GOVST are inviting presentations for a Science Day which this year focuses on "The status of the Year of Polar Prediction and related efforts in polar monitoring and predictions".

We are inviting local scientist and members of the GOVST to submit abstracts under this topic. The science day session is open to presentation of novel polar observation techniques for weather, sea ice and ocean, numerical prediction models and data assimilation developments that support the goals of YOPP. The session is open to both poles.

The Science day will be held on Thursday, 9 November (day 4 of the meeting).

Please submit your abstract by 15 October for this session by using

We hope to provide a varied and interesting set of presentations.
