The ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science will host its 4th annual winter school on June 15-19, 2015 at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, University of Tasmania.
The 2015 winter school theme is Biogeochemistry of the Earth System.
This is a high-level education program for honours and graduate students interested in climate science. It will be of relevance to those working in atmospheric sciences, oceanography and land processes.
Biogeochemistry describes the cycling of carbon, nitrogen, sulfur and much more through the Earth system. Topics cover the interactions between the biosphere and the climate system and the incorporation of these processes in the next generation of Earth system models.
The winter school will consist of a series of lectures and lab sessions delivered by Centre of Excellence researchers from our five universities and partner organisations. There will also be opportunities for socializing and networking. During the week of the winter school, Hobart is hosting the DARK MOFO winter festival.
Students are expected to have completed an undergraduate degree in maths, physics, chemistry, biology, earth science, engineering or a closely related field. A background in chemistry and biology at first year university level would be an advantage.
Some funding is available to support attendance. Priority will be given to honours and graduate students working on climate science problems.
The number of places is strictly limited.
Applications are now closed.
