Climate-Change Effects Summer School
Tid og sted:
Finse Alpine Research Center, Finse, Norway. 16.09.2012 13:00 til 22.09.2012 20:00
Research into climate-change effects on terrestrial ecosystems is a truly multidisciplinary research field, involving predictive modelling, correlative ecological approaches such as gradient studies and biogeography and palaeoecology, and field and laboratory experiments. Each of these research approaches is already making important contributions to our understanding of climate-change effects, but they have different strengths and weaknesses, and important steps forward can be made by closer multidisciplinary collaboration.
In this training course, Nordic research groups leading within one or more of the relevant fields offer a multidisciplinary research course aiming to stimulate participating students to take a broader view on climate-change effects research. This will be achieved through a series of seminars given by internationally leading experts in the different fields, group discussions exploring how multi- and inter-disciplinarity can contribute to address important themes in climate-change research, a field trip to the ITEX site at Finse, and practical training in statistical analyses using the R language.
The school is a unique opportunity to explore this important issue with like-minded post-graduate students and young scientists, mostly from the Nordic countries.
