Summer School on "Earth system variability through time - Processes, Observations and models"

26-31August, Grindelwald, Switzerland

The Swiss Climate Research, the network of leading Swiss institutions in climate research and education, is organizing the 17th Swiss Climate Summer School at the Oeschger Centre for Climate Change Research (OCCR), University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland between 26-31 August 2018.

The school is focusing this year on the theme “Earth system variability through time”, due to its paramount importance in terms of both scientific challenges and pressing societal concerns. Always with a focus on processes, observations and modeling, the specific topics include:

  • Earth system variability and climate change on glacial-interglacial cycles
  • Climate change forcings and feedbacks: past, present, future
  • The +2°C world and beyond
  • Tipping points, rapid changes and extreme events

Young researchers (PhD students and post-docs) from all fields of climate research are invited. The courses cover a broad

spectrum of climate and climate impact research issues and foster cross-disciplinary links. Each topic includes keynote plenary lectures and workshops with in-depth discussion in smaller groups. All Summer School participants are expected to present a poster of their research and there will be ample opportunity for discussion. 

Deadline of applications is 10 January 2018. You can download the flyer of the Climate Summer School here. Further information can be found here.
