The National Centre for Antarctic and Ocean Research (NCAOR) and the Norwegian Polar Institute (NPI) are organizing a summer school on "Antarctic climate variability and ice dynamics" at NCAOR in Goa. The targeted participants of the summer school are early-career scientists (MS/MTech/PhD students and postdoctoral scholars) who are studying earth science as a subject in any disciplines, who are at an early stage in glaciology and climate change studies.

The proposed summer school is organized in conjunction with the project workshop of the Indo-Norwegian research project MADICE, which just successfully completed its first field campaign to investigate mass balance, dynamics, and climate of the coastal Dronning Maud Land, East Antarctica.

The summer school includes lectures and hands-on sessions by experts from India and Norway, student presentations (oral or poster), and a tour of NCAOR's ice-core laboratory and facilities. One hands-on session is dedicated to Quantarctica, a free GIS data package for Antarctica, developed by the NPI. Instructors are MADICE collaborators from NCAOR, NPI and UNIS (University Centre in Svalbard).

Applicants should send a single pdf document that includes a hort CV (less than 2 pages) and a letter of interest (1 page) by 20 March 2017, to This email address is being protected from spambots.
