Register Now for Arctic Change and Mid-latitude Linkages Workshop

August 9, 2016
By Jessica Rohde

As extreme heat, rainfall events, and severe winters become more common, scientists investigate the possible link between Arctic change and extreme weather across the mid-latitudes.  

On February 1-3, 2017, join us for a workshop on Arctic Change and Its Influence on Mid-Latitude Climate and Weather in Washington, DC. The workshop will explore the linkages between changes in the Arctic—warming more than twice as fast as the global average, rapid loss of sea ice, and collapse of warm season snow cover—with a period of ostensibly more frequent events of extreme weather across the mid-latitudes.

The workshop is open to all, and the deadline to apply and submit an abstract is August 31. Learn more.
