Date:

21 – 25 May 2018

Location:

Hohai University, Nanjing, China

Overview:

This summer school is aimed at postgraduate students and early career scientists who would like to obtain a solid grounding in polar climate system science, with a particular focus on the atmosphere, ocean and sea ice and their interactions. It will consist of a series of lectures by world-leading experts in polar science, who will deal with the maintenance of the polar climates, their role in the global system, links to lower latitudes, modelling, change over recent decades and how the system my change over the next century. There will also be practical sessions involving analysis of observations and model output.

The organising committee consists of Prof Zhaomin Wang (Hohai University), Prof John Turner (British Antarctic Survey), Prof Kent Moore (University of Toronto), Prof Xiangdong Zhang (University of Alaska Fairbanks), Prof Annette Rinke (Alfred Wegener Institute, Germany).

Limited funding is available to support the attendance of a number of students.

For application, please download Application Form.docx . And send it to Ms Mengting Yin, mengting.yin@hhu.edu.cn, before 15th March, 2018.
