Sorry for any
I would like to draw your attention to the following summer
school. Please also
forward the information to potential PhD students and early
Advanced Climate Dynamics Courses (ACDC) are
yearly summer schools
organized by the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research
(University of Bergen) in
collaboration with the University of Washington, Woods Hole
Institution, and the University of Texas at Austin supported by
ACER funded by
the Norwegian Agency for International Cooperation and Quality
Higher Education (DIKU) and the Research School on Changing
Climates in the
coupled Earth System (CHESS). Partners for this year’s summer
Harvard University, McGill University, Scripps Institution of
IBS Centre for Climate Physics.

National Park, Sweden
Dates: 16.– 28. August, 2020
Application deadline: 1. March 2020.
Target: Focused on advanced graduate students (PhDs).
will be considered on a case by case basis if there is space
Goal: To mix diverse students and lecturers with
empirical and dynamical
training within climate science and focus on understanding the
and dynamics relating the global water cycle.
Price: All expenses on site are covered by the summer
participants have to cover their own travel to the venue
Key topics to be included:
- Atmospheric moisture, clouds, and aerosols
