The Les Houches workshops/schools are among the best for learning about
underlying dynamics of climate. (These days perhaps we should be saying
underlying dynamics of the global environment.) It is in a physics enclave
in a French alpine village close to the high ice sheet of the Vallee
Blanche and Aiguille du Midi ..the needle of noon.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are happy to announce the summer school

*Fundamental Aspects of turbulent flows in climate dynamics*
July 31--August 25, 2017
Les Houches, France

The deadline for applications to the summer school and for financial
support is approaching: March 15, 2017.

The summer school will take place in the beautiful resort of Les Houches,
in the French Alps, and will focus on four themes, each to be covered in
one of the four weeks of the school: ocean dynamics, large-scale atmosphere
dynamics, clouds and convection, and turbulence theory/dynamical systems
approaches. Overviews over these themes will be provided by the principal
lecturers Paola Cessi, Henk Dijkstra, Stephan Fauve, Raffaele Ferrari,
Isaac Held, Caroline Muller, David Romps, Ted Shepherd, and William Young.
In addition, there will be 10-12 seminars by invited speakers on current
research in these areas.

The summer school is aimed at graduate students and early-career
researchers in physics, (applied) mathematics, engineering, the climate
sciences, and related fields. A background in climate dynamics is helpful
but not necessary. Summer school participants will interact with each other
and with the principal lecturers, visitors, and staff in daily journal
clubs and research meetings.

Limited funds for students and early-career researcher to support
participation in the summer school will be available. More information on
the school can be found at


Freddy Bouchet, Tapio Schneider, and Antoine Venaille (organizers)

PS: please excuse us for possible cross posting.
