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.
