- Raise awareness of end-users about new climate products and services for the Arctic, potential support to decision-making, and the current limitations;
- Interact with end-users and learn about the climate information they currently use for planning, and their needs for climate information.
The two parts of the meeting were arranged as follows:
- Day 1: May 26th (Wednesday at 1600-1900 UTC) there will be the ArcRCC-N Regional Overview Briefings featuring the extremes seen this past Arctic Winter 2020/21 along with the outlook for Summer 2021 for 8 regions in the Arctic; and,
