The course will provide a basic introduction to the dynamics of glaciers and ice sheets with a focus on ice-climate interactions. Topics include continuum mechanics, sliding and hydraulics, numerical modelling, polar meteorology, ice-ocean interaction, ice cores, interaction of ice sheets with the solid earth, etc. The course is meant for Ph.D. students that work on (or will soon start working on) a glaciology-related climate project. Some places are available for junior scientists.
The summer school will be held in Karthaus in the Italian Alps. Lecturers include B. de Boer, T. Blunier, I. Hewitt, N. Karlsson, F. Navarro, F. Pattyn, G. Spada, A. Stroeven, W.J. van de Berg, J. Oerlemans (convenor).
