The International Commission on Polar Meteorology (ICPM) is a focus for research into the meteorology and climatology of the Arctic and Antarctic. It is one of the ten commissions of the International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS), which is in turn part of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG).
ICPM has two primary functions:
- To further scientific work into the meteorology and climatology of the polar regions by maintaining liaison between active research workers and other organisations, such as the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) etc.
- To organize symposia on topical subjects at the biannual meetings of IAMAS.
