Dr. Øystein Godøy of the Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP) program and the Norwegian Meteorological Institute presents on the YOPP meteorological and sea ice observations and provides an introduction to YOPP data management - status and future. Please share this with your networks.
The objective of this session is to provide researchers, community members and data professional with an understanding of the YOPP data program and tools, as well as creating an opportunity for the broader community to learn more about YOPP efforts to improve synergies in data use, and build collaborative relationships
The Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP)(2017-2019) promotes cooperative international research enabling development of improved weather and environmental prediction services for the polar regions, on time scales from hours to seasonal. YOPP is a concerted international campaign to improve predictions of weather, climate and ice conditions in the Arctic and Antarctic has been launched to minimize the environmental risks and maximize the opportunities associated with rapid climate change in polar regions and to close the current gaps in polar forecasting capacity.
The YOPP Data Portal will provide metadata and links to respective data sets generated during the Year of Polar Prediction. As a legacy for YOPP, this data portal is going to take into account the various requirements of end-users working with the YOPP data collection.
