Summer School on "Sea-level change: observations, processes and modelling"

TU Delft Climate Institute, Delft, The Netherlands, 28th August-1st September 2017.

The Delft University of Technology is organizing a summer school on sea-level change on 28th August-1st September for PhD students and junior scientists.

World-leading experts, including our SPP-1889 colleague Ben Marzeion from the University of Bremen, will give lectures providing an introduction to the most important physical processes contributing to sea level change, particularly the dynamics of current and future sea level change and state-of-the-art tools to measure and project it.

A great emphasis of the school is placed on practical exercises and "hands-on" learning on the observation and modelling of sea level change, the different contributors to global and regional sea level change, and associated forcing mechanisms. Participants will also receive a training on science communication.

The Synthetic programme of the summer school is:

Day 1: The sea level record; student presentations and case studies.

Day 2: The Solid Earth contribution; field trip to the Sand Motor.

Day 3: Glaciers and ice sheets; computer exercises with an ice sheet model.

Day 4: The oceans; computer exercises with the Broad Radar Altimetry Tool (BRAT).

Day 5: Global climate and sea level; workshop on public communication of climate science.

Practical information and further details including updates, the application procedure, registration fees and accommodation can be found here.

Deadline for application and registration is 31st May 2017.
