The 4th ICOS Summer School on the theme of "Challenges in measurements of greenhouse gases and their interpretation" will again be held in 2017 at the Hyytiälä field station in Finland. The school will cover:
- Ecosystem fluxes and measurements
- Atmospheric composition and measurements (in-situ and remote sensing)
- Modeling of the global climate, carbon cycle, atmospheric transport and chemistry
- Data management and cloud ('big data') methods
The last two sections will each include a practical session
Costs and funding: Most of the costs (accommodation, catering, organization and lectures) will be covered from ICOS and RINGO project funds. Participants will have to arrange their own travel to/from Helsinki, Finland.
Who can participate: 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 school is also open to staff working at ICOS stations that would like to deepen or refresh their knowledge on the subject. The scope of the Summer School is closely related to the European Research Infrastructure ICOS, and related H2020 projects ENVRI+ , COOP+ and RINGO, the latter providing training for scientists from countries that are aiming to join ICOS.
How to apply: Application details are given on the ICOS Carbon Portal website: https://www.icos-cp.eu/node/129. The application deadline is 1 February 2017.
