Scope of the Workshop:
Extreme weather events are commonly encompassed with phenomena such as heat waves, droughts, floods and storms. In cold regions, these are augmented with snow and sea-ice related extreme events, usually triggered by anomalous atmospheric or oceanic conditions. Although extreme events are a core climate research focus, cryospheric extremes have not received much attention yet. The overarching aim of the workshop is to review our understanding of cryospheric extreme events in the past, present and future, and to identify research needs.

Topics of interest include:

  • Observing cryospheric extremes (CE) and their precursors
  • Modelling requirements for CE
  • Producing and verifying forecasts of CE
  • CE and climate change
  • Relevance of CE for society/users
