The APPLICATE Case Studies are a series of self-explaining short documents covering a wide range of relevant topics in Arctic research and polar prediction, including the effects of Arctic environmental changes on mid-latitudes.
APPLICATE develops case studies to show the use of weather, climate and sea ice information in the case of specific events with a significant impact on certain sectors or communities.
The events analyzed in the case studies are selected together with users in User Group meetings, in thematic workshops, or through interviews.
Once the topic is decided, collaboration is established between the working group, composed of a few users directly related to the particular case study, and the project scientists.
Project results and developed case studies are communicated to various audiences (including European policy-makers) in a concise way as short communication pieces.
