>
> The Oceans and Cryosphere play critical roles in weather and climate, > and this session of the World Weather Open Science Conference focuses on > the provision of accurate measurements and their assimilation into > numerical models for weather prediction and climate simulation. High > latitudes are especially sensitive to changes in climate forcing, in > part due to the strength and complexity of feedbacks prevalent in the > Polar Regions. Better understanding of the coupling of the > atmosphere-ocean-cryosphere involving the exchanges of heat, momentum, > moisture and other gases, and the feedbacks that can amplify or dampen > the system responses, will result from more accurate in situ and > remotely-sensed measurements as well as refined assimilation of > measurements into models. Abstracts are sought for presentations that > address all aspects of ocean and cryosphere measurements and their > assimilation into all classes of ocean, atmosphere, land and climate models. >
