Arctic and Antarctic weather and climate prediction and predictability issues are high up on the polar (research) communities' agenda. A vast amount of information is available in different media. To help connect sending and receiving parties, a dedicated electronic mailing list tailored to people interested in Arctic and Antarctic prediction and predictability is being set up. We will strive to keep you informed about upcoming events, recent findings, new papers and developments.
The Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling (SOCCOM) program is a six-year initiative funded by the National Science Foundation’s Division of Polar Programs and headquartered at Princeton University.
The project was launched in September 2014 with an initial commitment of $3.5 million per year over 6 years ($21 million dollars total).
