Attention‼ Update‼ COVID-19‼
Due to the COVID-19 situation across the world, we decided to postpone the in-person school till the second half of February 2021. We hope that this date is good, of course, provided that the pandemic situation is under control.
However, since we gained a very positive feedback with many submissions to the 2020 school, we decided to provide you with an online school during the planned school for 2020. We will prepare a number of open webinars for you and the list of presentations with dates, will be made available in July.
So, please stay with us and follow the page due to updates!
As a result of the worldwide coronavirus outbreak, we realize that universities are closed and we are all facing challenges conducting our regular activities. Therefore, we decided to extend the submission deadline to May 29th.
We would like to personally thank you for your patience under this dificult situation. Please follow the page due to updates in the event schedule!
Still, see you in Sopot!
International School on INtegrated Environmental Studies in the Arctic (INES)
The Arctic region is undergoing rapid climate changes, which is manifested in many ways, e.g. temperature changes are over 3 times greater than the average for the Northern Hemisphere. This phenomenon is commonly known as the Arctic amplification. Therefore, since this is a key area to investigate, and the changes are very rapid and potentially affect the entire globe, the scientific research must be interdisciplinary.
with respect to climate changes 28 September – 2 October 2020
The main goal of the School is to facilitate international and interdisciplinary cooperation in studies on the interactive effects of climate change on Arctic nature and societies. We except that participants of the International School on Integrated Environmental Studies in the Arctic will understand the need for interdisciplinary scientific approach to discuss issues connected to the Arctic and Climate Change, as well as have a wider perspective of these changes.
The 5-day program will cover a wide range of disciplines: climatology, atmospheric and marine chemistry, biology and physics, studies of marine ecosystems in the Arctic and its socio-economic development.
With guidance from eminent scientists and dedicated group mentors, you will work in small teams on interdisciplinary projects related to climatological changes in the Arctic.
This practical course is designed for early career scientists (graduate students, PhD students and young researchers, up to 2 years after completion of PhD) who want to gain confidence, experience and in-depth knowledge about the interdisciplinary Arctic, with a special emphasis on science fieldwork.
Participants will have a chance to work on board of r/v Oceania, to carry on interdisciplinary measurements.
There is a 100 euro FEE which includes: accommodation, light lunch and coffee breaks during 5 days of school.
The School comprehensive program includes the following research topics:
- Oceanography basics and Arctic cryosphere.
- Marine and terrestrial food webs, external drivers (abiotic and biotic), and adaptations to changing conditions in the Arctic.
- Societal relevance of climate change in the Arctic.
- Biodiversity changes and adaptations to changing climate.
- Physical and chemical atmospheric processes, including long range and local sources of pollution.
- Interdisciplinary measurements on board r/v Oceania.
- Long-term observations and trends in aerosols, temperature, precipitation, clouds, radiation and ice and snow cover/extent.
- Exercise on Atmosphere, Oceans, Cryosphere, Biology/Ecology.
- Real data analyses.
