The topics covered at the NCCR Climate Summer School 2004 included:
- Pertinent aspects of climate physics
- Climate phenomena and processes at seasonal to decadal time ranges
- Assessment of predictability and approaches to prediction
- Associated impacts of climate change on society and economy's vulnerability
The summer school covered a broad spectrum of climate research issues and fostered cross-disciplinary links. Each topic included keynote plenary lectures and workshops with in-depth discussion in smaller groups. All summer school participants presented a poster of their research.
The summer school was held at Monte Verità, a scenic and historic conference centre near Locarno, overlooking Lago Maggiore and the neighboring mountains.
