The Potsdam Summer School 2016 is calling for applications!


From global sea-level rise to extreme events like floods or droughts, the third Potsdam Summer School from 5 – 14 September 2016 will focus on long-term climate change impacts and the challenge of dealing with them.


Any kind of assessment of long-term hazards is based on knowledge of the natural processes within the climate system, quantification by computer models and scenario analysis and must be supplemented by a risk assessment to evaluate the impacts in respect of potential mitigation measures. Participants at the 2016 Potsdam Summer School will learn to assess long-term hazards and conduct risk assessments to evaluate impacts and identify potential mitigation measures for impacts ranging from Arctic warming over sea-level rise to Amazon dieback. An intense ten-day programme will address four major topics.


More information in the attached brochure or at the Summer School page:


The deadline for submitting completed applications will be 15 April 2016.
