GOTHAM International Summer School on "Global Teleconnections in the Earth's Climate System - Processes, Modelling and Advanced Analysis Methods"
GOTHAM International Summer School on "Global Teleconnections in the
Earth's Climate System - Processes, Modelling and Advanced Analysis
Methods" at PIK, 18-22 September 2017, Potsdam, Germany
Organized by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK),
the GOTHAM Summer School will train young scientists on a unique
combination of interdisciplinary scientific topics and tools relevant
for understanding teleconnections and their role in causing extreme
weather events. The school comprises lectures as well as tutorial
sessions by some of the world’s leading experts in this 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
• Interactions between global teleconnection patterns.
• Data management skills and the use of citizen science platforms
• Identification of teleconnections using complex systems or network
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. Application
processes to be announced soon at the official website of the Summer
