The workshop aims to facilitate collaborations between researchers and will have substantial dialogue and networking activities as well as invited overview presentations, panel discussions and the opportunity to present your work in poster sessions. Sessions planned for the programme are:

  • Overview presentations by invited speakers, followed by panel discussions on
    • High-latitude surface temperatures: synthesis of datasets and what they tell us (Kevin Wood)
    • Arctic Land Surface Temperature: Variability and Change (Claude Duguay)
    • Sea Surface Temperature Changes in Polar Regions (Pierre Le Borgne)
    • Sea-Ice Surface Temperature Measurements: Status and Utility (Jacob Høyer)
  • Plenary discussion: Combined interpretation of Arctic temperatures
  • Networking activities
  • Breakout discussion groups on
    • Techniques for matching measurements and retrievals across different platforms
    • Measurement of high-latitude Surface Temperature (SST): Why is it difficult, and how can we do it better?
    • Satellite Land Surface Temperatures (LST) in high latitudes and high altitudes: How can we exploit them better?
    • The EarthTemp White Paper: Turning recommendations into actions
  • Poster sessions & Poster discussions

Note that details of topics and presentations may change as planning progresses.

There is no attendance fee, and lunches during the meeting are provided free of charge. The workshop is limited to 50 participants. Registration is now open, please use the Registration Form.
