Monitoring atmospheric composition & climate
MACC-II Summer School Open for Applications

Applications are now open for the MACC-II "MODELING AND FORECASTING OF ATMOSPHERIC COMPOSITION AT DIFFERENT SCALES" summer school. The lectures will focus on issues such as the acquisition and analysis of in situ and satellite observations, the development of global and regional chemistry-transport models, the data needed as input to the models such as surface emissions, and the use of observations in data assimilation and inverse modelling. Working groups will be organized, where more advanced lectures on specific topics will be organized, and demonstrations and work on the MACC-II products will be also organized.

Applications deadline: January 31st 2013 (closed)

The school will take place on June 9-16 in Anglet in the South-West of France. More indications on how to reach this place by train and plane will be given later. The school is open to all PhD students, post-docs, users of MACC-II products, and data providers. The attendance is limited to 60 people. Applications will be reviewed by a committee, and the selection of applicants will be announced before the end of February 2013 at around 15th March 2013.

The cost for attending will be about 450 euros, which includes full board (from dinner on June 9 to breakfast on July 16), based on 2 persons sharing a room. A few individual rooms might also be available for an extra cost of about 120 euros. At the present time, no grants are available: a very small number of grants might be available later.
