Welcome to the IP3 website!

IP3, 'Improved Processes and Parameterization for Prediction in Cold Regions', operated from 2006 to 2011 as a research network with a prime objective of improving understanding of cold regions hydrometeorology. The project conducted wide-ranging studies of surface-water and weather systems, based on field investigations in Canada's Rocky Mountains and the Western Arctic, with the aim of enhancing the capabilities of a suite of operational software models.

Made possible by funding from the Canadian Foundation for Climate and Atmospheric Sciences (CFCAS), and established under the University of Saskatchewan's Centre for Hydrology, the network fostered and co-ordinated research by scientists from across Canada, the USA, Europe and elsewhere.

Summarised information about the aims of IP3 are available from brochures (published in English and Français), and the 'IP3 Primer'.
