"Climate of the Polar Regions" provides a forum for discussion of latest results on the ways in which polar climate is changing under the stress of increasing greenhouse gas concentrations, and on model simulations of future change. Papers are welcome on processes in the atmosphere, sea ice cover, ocean and land (including ice sheets). Of particular relevance, and especially welcome this year, are results coming from the 2007 field season of the DAMOCLES EU project, which seeks to monitor and understand change in the Arctic Ocean, including its sea ice cover and atmosphere.
