The 3rd VALUE training school "Spatial and temporal variability in statistical and dynamical downscaling", will be held at the "Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP)".

Our understanding of global climate change is mainly based on General Circulation Models (GCMs) with a relatively coarse resolution. Since climate change impacts are mainly experienced on regional scales, high-resolution climate change scenarios need to be derived from GCM simulations by downscaling.

The EU COST action VALUE (ES1102, www.value-cost.eu) is a research network aiming to systematically validate and develop downscaling methods for climate change research in order to improve regional climate change scenarios for use in climate impact studies.

A key objective of VALUE is the integrated training of young scientists from various disciplines in both statistical and dynamical downscaling. The 3rd VALUE training school comprises different modules, containing lectures and practical applications. Starting with an introduction to climate modelling and different downscaling approaches, focus will be given to spatial and temporal variability in statistical and dynamical downscaling. Methods for validating spatial and temporal aspects will be discussed.

Participation:
Scientists and students from all COST countries may attend the school. As it will be conducted in English, participants should have an adequate working knowledge of this language. Limited funding (including travel grants) for participation is available. No registration fee is required.

How to apply for Participation:
The on-line application form can be accessed via the ICTP activity agenda page at: http://agenda.ictp.it/smr.php?2780
Once in the website, comprehensive instructions will guide you step-by-step, on how to fill out and submit the application form. Please send all file attachments in Word or PDF format.
