Project Summary

The workshop focuses on polar lows and mesocyclones in both hemispheres, but contributions to other mesoscale weather phenomena such as katabatic winds, tipjets, boundary layer fronts, cold air outbreaks, and weather extremes in polar regions are also welcome. This includes experimental, climatological, theoretical, modelling, and remote sensing studies. The main format will consist of science presentations as well as a poster session. Several early career scientists as well as solicited speakers have already confirmed their participation. The workshop will also feature extended discussion sessions for the community to formulate the state-of-the-art knowledge as well as future research directions.
