8th International NCCR Climate Summer School with participation of IGBP-PAGES
"Climate variability, forcings, feedbacks and responses: the long-term perspective"
30 August – 4 September 2009, Grindelwald, Switzerland
The topics covered at the NCCR Climate Summer School 2009 included:
- climate variability: the long-term perspective
- reconstruction techniques, past climate modelling and data assimilation
- forcings, feedbacks and responses of the climate system
- impacts of climate change: the hydrological cycle
The Summer School invited young researchers from all fields of climate and climate impact research. The courses covered a broad spectrum of climate impact research issues and foster 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 and there was ample opportunity for discussion. An excursion lead to exciting research sites.
