11 day-long international summer school (3 ECTS) on cryospheric monitoring and water resources in the Chilean Andes. Fully funded by the Akademiaavtalen and the CHESS Research school on changing climates in the coupled earth system for participants from affiliated Norwegian institutes.

This course will introduce students to a range of field and computer-based methods for cryospheric monitoring in a region where glaciers and rock glaciers provide up to 80% of the local streamflow. Students will learn how to couple the analysis of satellite and aerial imagery with Uncrewwed Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in order to study topographical and kinematic changes. Students will also use Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) techniques, as well as performing geomorphological mapping using Geomatics enabled tablets.

For questions, please contact Benjamin Robson (benjamin.robson.no) or Willem van der Bilt (willemvanderbilt@uib.no). 

Advanced graduate students (PhDs). Other applications will be considered on a case by case basis if there is space  

Deadline: 20th June 2022
