Summary

Organizers invite graduate and post graduate students who are interested in Arctic Science to apply for the 2016 Connaught Summer Institute in Arctic Science: Atmosphere, Cryosphere, and Climate.

The Connaught Summer Institute in Arctic Science: Atmosphere, Cryosphere, and Climate brings together students and established scholars who are engaged in Arctic research, to provide an understanding of the Arctic climate and the processes that control it, and to establish an interdisciplinary forum in which they can discuss current challenges and identify emerging research opportunities in this area.

It is intended for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows engaged in Arctic research. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from experienced researchers in a small and comfortable setting. Students will also participate in professional development activities, engage in a diverse career panel discussion, develop strategies for linking scientific knowledge to public engagement, education and outreach, and present their own research during a poster session.

Topics to be covered include Arctic paleoclimatology, the Arctic climate system, climate modelling, causes of changes in Arctic sea ice, high-latitude snow processes, Arctic aerosols, composition-climate interactions, tropospheric halogen chemistry in the Arctic, stratospheric ozone and chlorine chemistry, the carbon cycle, aerosols and climate, atmospheric measurement techniques, Arctic archeology, Inuit heritage, and science communications.

Application Deadline: 30 May 2016.
