We are pleased to announce the:
 
2nd TTORCH Summer School
Challenges in measurements
of greenhouse gases and their interpretation
30 September - 11 October 2013
 
The second TTORCH* Summer School will take place at Hyytiälä Forestry Field Station, in Finland. Local hosts are Timo Vesala and Ivan Mammarella from the University of Helsinki.
 
The school will be organized in three sections:
-          Atmospheric composition,
-          Atmospheric measurements
-          Atmospheric modeling.
The last two sections will each include a practical session.
 
Lecturers include: Christoph Gerbig, Martin Heimann, Sander Houweling, Jürgen Kesselmeier, Maarten Krol, Ingeborg Levin, Anders Lindroth, and Timo Vesala.
 
The school is mainly oriented to PhD students, but a number of PostDocs and master students preparing to start a Doctorate will be accepted. The scope of the Summer School is closely related to the European projects GHGEurope, ICOS and InGOS.
 
For application, the candidate should prepare a document containing the CV, a short description of her / his work and a recommendation letter of the supervisor. The selection will take into account the connection between the candidate’s research subject and the TTORCH focus.
 
Please apply through the TTorch website before April 30: http://www.ttorch.org/?page_id=834
 
Most of the costs (accommodation, catering, organization and lectures) will be covered from ESF TTORCH funds. The students will have to pay themselves the travel costs only, a limited budget is available to cover travel costs for students.
 
* TTORCH (Tall Tower and surface Observation Research Network for verification of Climate relevant emissions of Human origin in Europe) is an ESF Research Networking Programme focusing on measurements and modelling of non-CO2 greenhouse gases (CH4, N2O, SF6) and related tracers (e.g., CO, H2, 14CO2, O2/N2). The main purpose of TTORCH is to support and help improve the European network of observations of greenhouse gases through communication, workshops, grants for exchange visits and summer schools.
