International Sea Ice Summer School 2007
Longyearbyen, Norway

Scholarship / Financial aid: undefined

Date: two weeks in July/August 2007

Deadline: N/A or unknown

Open to: at graduate level (PhD) in geophysics/mathematics conducting research in sea-ice related subjects

Announcement follows

Owing to both the active role of sea ice in the Earth s climate system and to its rather rapid response to possible climatic changes there has been very active sea-ice related research during the last years. Both to reflect these recent developments in sea ice research and to assist with the outreach program of the International Polar Year (IPY) 2007 we plan to hold an "International Summer School on Sea Ice" at the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS), Longyearbyen, Norway for two weeks in July/August 2007.

Its objectives will be to - increase the knowledge of sea ice related geophysics among both students and scientists, - faciliate interdisciplinary research and stimulate international cooperation among students and scientists - gather the findings of the last very active years of research for a broad audience.

We will invite world-leading experts on a wide range of sea-ice related subjects, including air-ice-sea interactions, physics of turbulent boundary layers, remote sensing, physics of solidification, biology within sea ice, numerical modelling and climate change.

The summer school will be similar to the 1994 summer school "Physics of Ice Covered Seas", which was organised by Matti Lepparanta. We expect roughly 60 students from all over the world to take part in the school. Analogue to the 1994 summer school the lectures will be summarised and published in a textbook.

The summer school will be aimed at students at graduate level (PhD) in geophysics/mathematics conducting research in sea-ice related subjects. In addition to regular lectures, the summer school will give opportunity for participants to present and discuss own work, by posters and oral presentations.

The unique position of UNIS in the high Arctic makes it very well suited for this scientific, educational and social event, which we believe may be a great inspiration for young researchers during years to come.
