The polar and subpolar regions play a significant role for global climate. In recent years increasing evidence has also been found for the important role which ocean variability and ice-ocean-atmosphere interactions plays in determining major shifts in climate regime.

This session will deal with various aspects of past and present climate of the (sub)polar region, including extra-polar teleconnections. Presentations include studies of modern climate dynamics, long-term trends and short-term variability. A special emphasis is placed on the origin and mechanisms involved in multi-decadal to millennial-scale climate variability.
