Description

 The school comprises lectures as well as tutorial sessions by some of the world’s leading experts in the field.

Specific topics include:

• Global consequences of extreme El Niños.
• Mid-latitude weather extremes and the role of tropical, extratropical and Arctic drivers.
• Stratosphere dynamics and stratosphere-troposphere interactions.
• Internal variability and external drivers of South and East Asian monsoon systems.
• Interactions between global teleconnection patterns.
• Data management skills and the use of citizen science platforms (climateprediction.net).
• Identification of teleconnections using complex systems or network methods.

Participation
The Summer School is intended to host 25 young researchers working in relevant topical areas, both from GOTHAM partners and external institutes. Registration is free-of-charge and accommodation expenses will be covered for all attendees. Limited funding is available to cover travel expenses of a few selected students.
