The Advanced Climate Dynamics Courses (ACDC) are a series of yearly summer/winter schools organized by the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research (University of Bergen) and is a part of the partnership in climate between the Bjerknes Centre in Bergen, University of Washington in Seattle, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the University of Texas at Austin, USA, and is supported by ACER, a project funded by The Norwegian Agency for International Cooperation and Quality Enhancement in Higher Education, and the Reseach Council of Norway, as well as the Norwegian research school on chaning climates in the coupled earth system (CHESS).

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).
