The next Karthaus course will be held during September 2019 in Karthaus (northern Italy).
The course provides 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 working on a glaciology-related climate project. Some places are available for junior scientists.
