Any kind of assessment of long-term hazards is based on knowledge of the natural processes within the climate system, quantification by computer models and scenario analysis and must be supplemented by a risk assessment to evaluate the impacts in respect of potential mitigation measures. Participants at the 2016 Potsdam Summer School will learn to assess long-term hazards and conduct risk assessments to evaluate impacts and identify potential mitigation measures for impacts ranging from Arctic warming over sea-level rise to Amazon dieback. An intense ten-day programme will address four major topics.

Venue:

The Potsdam Summer School 2016 will be conducted at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS), the Albert Einstein Campus and the University of Potsdam.

Important Dates:

The deadline for submitting completed applications will be 15 April 2016.
