Proceedings of the meeting, June 11-13, 2003
The European Polar Low Working Group under the European Geophysical Society (EGS) held the 9th working group meeting at Cambridge (UK) from 11 to 13 June 2003 and was hosted by the British Antarctic Survey (BAS).
An international group with scientists and students from France, Germany, Norway, United Kingdom and USA attended the workshop. The papers presented several review lectures summarizing the work on polar lows and mesoscale cyclones during the last 25 years and future research perspectives. The workshop showed the progress achieved by new field campaigns, using new satellite data such as MODIS and the role of polar mesocyclones in air-sea-ice interaction.
