2010 - Ice Ocean interactions
2011 - Past warm climates
2012 - Landscapes and climate
2013 - Dynamics of the last deglaciation
2014 - Dynamics of the Greenland Ice sheet
2015 - Climate and Volcanism
2016 - Centennial to Millennial scale climate change

Date: March 25th – 28th, 2019 (save the dates)
Location: Somewhere in Norway along the Bergen-Oslo or Oslo-Trondheim train line
Abstract submission deadline: 1. December 2018 (will open soon).
Target: Alumni students and lecturers of the last 10 years.
Topic: Hemispheric Asymmetry in Climate
Date: September 17th – 28th, 2018
Location: Finse Alpine Research Center, Hardangervidda National Park, Norway
Application deadline: The application is now 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 relating to asymmetries in climate.
Confirmed lecturers: Bo Vinther (Niels Bohr Institute/University of Copenhagen), Cecilia Bitz (University of Washington), David Battisti (University of Washington), Jake Gebbie (WHOI), Jessica Tierney (University of Arizona), Kerim H. Nisancioglu (UiB/UiO), Natalya Gomez (McGill University), Peter Huybers (Harvard University), Tore Furevik (UiB), Øyvind Paasche (UiB).

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.
