Could you please circulate this to the CCSM mailing list?
Thank you so much.
Sorry for any cross posting.
I would like to draw your attention to the following summer school.
Please also forward the information to potential PhD students and
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
Oceanographic Institution, and the University of Texas at Austin with
support from the Norwegian Agency for International Cooperation and
Quality Enhancement in Higher Education and the Research Council of
Norway. Partners for this year’s summer school include Harvard
University, McGill University, Scripps Institution of Oceanography and
IBS Centre for Climate Physics.
Topic: The Anthropocene
Venue: UC Merced Yosemite Field Station, Yosemite National Park, USA.
Dates: 22. September - 4. October, 2019
Application deadline: 1. April 2019.
Target: Focused on advanced graduate students (PhDs). Other
applications will be considered on a case by case basis if there is
space (admission is competitive).
Goal: To mix diverse students and lecturers with empirical and
dynamical training within climate science and focus on understanding
the basic principles and dynamics relating to, and defining the
climate of the Anthropocene.
Price: All expenses on site are covered by the summer school, but
participants have to cover travel to the venue themselves.
Key topics to be included:
- how can we tell natural and anthropogenic forcing apart?
- impact of fires and aerosols

- coastal impacts
- extreme events
- demise of past civilizations
- human migration
- agriculture and climate
- the Little Ice Age
- cryosphere changes
