17 Polar Call for Papers

Call for Papers

The 17th Conference on Polar Meteorology and Oceanography, sponsored by the American Meteorological Society and organized by the AMS Polar Meteorology and Oceanography Committee, was held at the Monona Terrace in Madison, WI, August 8-12, 2022.  The conference was held jointly with the AMS 25th Conference on Satellite Meteorology, and the AMS 16th Conference on Cloud Physics/16th Conference on Atmospheric Radiation as part of the Collective Madison Meeting.


Papers were solicited for sessions that cover a wide range of topics on polar meteorology and oceanography, including but not limited to:

  • forced and unforced climate variability in the polar regions
  • interactions among polar atmosphere-ocean-land-ice components
  • atmospheric, ocean, land ice, or sea ice physical processes
  • weather and climate modelling and predictability in the polar regions
  • recent polar-focused field campaigns
  • polar cyclones and atmospheric rivers and their impacts on the ocean, land ice, or sea ice
  • connections between physical, economic, and social change in polar regions
  • machine learning methods in polar research

Papers were also solicited on cross-cutting themes appropriate to several joint sessions with the other conferences including:

  • satellite observations the polar regions
  • polar clouds and radiation
  • polar reanalyses
  • high-latitude radiation, cloud, and climate processes

Please submit your abstract electronically via the AMS conference website by 14 April 2022 (see the website for instructions). The abstract submission fee of $95 USD is charged at the time of submission and refundable only if the abstract is not accepted. Authors of accepted presentations will be notified via email by mid-May 2022.


While we are aware there is continued uncertainty associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, at this time we believe this conference will take place entirely in-person. Specific details regarding the conference program and format will be posted by AMS as soon as they are available. We encourage all presenters and attendees to visit the meeting website often to stay up to date on the latest news.


Submissions by students, early-career scientists, and underrepresented groups will be prioritized, and limited funds in the form of registration fee waivers or travel grants are available to support participation and further details will be available when abstract acceptance notifications are sent.
