Topic: The Dynamics of the Seasonal Cycle
Date: September 11th – 22nd, 2017
Location: Rondvassbu, Rondane National Park, Norway
Application deadline: Closed
Target: Advanced PhD candidates and early career scientists.
Goal: To mix students and lecturers with empirical and dynamical training within climate science and focus on understanding the basic principles and dynamics of the seasonal cycle across different timescales. This summer we will explore what we can learn from the largest reoccurring change in Earth´s climate.
Confirmed lecturers: Peter Huybers (Harvard), David Battisti (University of Washington), Camille Li (UiB), Jake Gebbie (WHOI), Patrick Heimbach (UTexas/MIT), Kerim H. Nisancioglu (UiB/UiO), Øyvind Paasche (UiB), Tore Furevik (UiB), Axel Timmermann (IBS), Zan Stine (SFSU) and Ayako Abe-Ouchi.
The Advanced Climate Dynamics Courses (ACDC) are a series of yearly summer/winter schools coordinated by the Norwegian Research School in Climate Dynamics (ResClim) and is a part of the partnership in climate between the Bjerknes Centre in Bergen, University of Washington in Seattle, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, USA.
For an introduction to the schools and the concept of ACDC please watch the video from our school on Greenland in 2014 (at the top of this page).
This year we acknowledge the National Science Foundation (NSF) for generous support.
