4th International Baltic Earth Summer School 20-27 August 2018: Climate of the Baltic Sea region
The international Summer School "Climate of the Baltic Sea Region" will take place in 20-27 August 2018 at Askö Laboratory, Trosa, Sweden, as part of the Master studies of Physics of the University of Rostock.
The course will focus on past and future changes in climate of the Baltic Sea region. The Baltic Sea is a semi-enclosed sea with a large freshwater supply from rivers of the adjacent catchment area in the transition zone between maritime and continental climates in northern Europe. Many long-term observational data are available and provide a good knowledge about oceanic changes during the past two centuries and even longer periods. Proxy-data of the past 1,000 to 2,000 years bear witness of a pronounced climate variability in the region.
Co-organized by Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research Warnemünde, University of Rostock and the International Baltic Earth Secretariat at Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht under the umbrella of Baltic Earth.
Application deadline: 1 May 2018
