The APPOSITE project

APPOSITE is a 3-year research project that aims to address fundamental questions about the extent to which the climate and state of the Arctic system is predictable on seasonal to inter-annual timescales, and about the physical processes that govern this predictability.

The scientific goals of APPOSITE are to:

1. quantify the predictability of the Arctic environment on monthly to inter-annual timescales
2. determine the physical processes and mechanisms that determine Arctic predictability
3. establish to what extent, and through what mechanisms, the Arctic influences the predictability of the wider climate system
4. provide recommendations on required developments in operational prediction systems
