Advanced Climate Dynamics Courses

An international PhD training school in Climate Dynamics (ACDC) visits Greenland

ACDC 2017

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), Amaelle Landais (LSCE/CNRS) and Zan Stine (SFSU).




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.
