The FAMOS (Forum for Arctic Modeling and Observational Synthesis) 6th Annual Meeting and School will be held at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (Woods Hole, MA - USA) on October 24 (School) and October 25-272017 (Meeting).

The registration and abstract submission deadline is August 15th. Click here to register now!

The overall goal of the FAMOS Meeting is to enhance understanding of processes and mechanisms driving Arctic oceanic and sea ice changes through coordinated experiments. The meeting is designed to be interactive and participants are expected to get involved in one or more working groups. This year’s meeting will especially focus on large-scale arctic climate modeling: ice-ocean, regional coupled, and global coupled models.

The FAMOS school is aimed at students and early career scientists, and this year’s theme is “A hierarchy of arctic marine models: strengths, weaknesses, understanding, and prediction”. The school usually comprises of introductory lectures, ample discussion time on what’s new and exciting in the field, and afternoon outreach sessions. Please note that places for the school are limited.
