The National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) Atmospheric Measurement Summer School 2012 will be held on the Isle of Arran between the 9th and 21st of September. This is a two-week field course aimed at atmospheric science PhD students and early career researchers. Over the two weeks we aim to introduce the basics of atmospheric science and teach scientists how good quality atmospheric measurements are made.
The first week of the course is based at the Kildonan Hotel where lectures are given by expert atmospheric scientists on a variety of topics including atmospheric dynamics, weather forecasting, and atmospheric chemistry and physics. For the second week we move north to the Lochranza field centre where the background knowledge gained in the first week forms the basis for practical activities which will give participants hands-on experience of making atmospheric measurements. This is also an excellent opportunity to meet other young researchers working in the same field and network with senior scientists who are experienced in carrying out fieldwork.
The course is aimed primarily at first and second year PhD students but it is also open to early career researchers who are new to atmospheric field work. Supervisors can secure a place for first year students in advance of their PhD start date. To register go to www.ncas.ac.uk/AMSS and follow the link to the application form. The course is fully funded for NERC students/researchers and for non-NERC students/researchers the fee will be around £1000. This includes all accommodation and activities during the course but does not include travel to and from Arran which must be covered by all students. The deadline for registration is 31st May 2012. For more information email the NCAS Education and Development Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit www.ncas.ac.uk/AMSS. There is also a poster/flyer available for download from this website if you would like to publicise this event around your department.
