NEW – Near Real-time Pan-Arctic Alerts (ARP-PAAS)
The Arctic Risk Platform has a new Pan-Arctic Alert System (PAAS) using operational weather forecasting, satellite and ground observations to deliver updates of a real-time view of unfolding climate extremes. This is based on deviations from historical patterns.
For example, above the Arctic Circle, the far north of Canada today has 80 F (27°C). So it’s not just Quebec and Nova Scotia that are feeling unseasonable heat. And a few days earlier, the Greenland melt season started with a heatwave bringing unseasonable melt up to 6500 feet [1981 meters] altitude. These and the coming Arctic Alerts are now being monitored real–time by the Arctic Risk Platform.
