The ICAT PhD school (2 ECTS) is aimed at PhD students and junior postdocs who conduct ice core analysis or are users of ice core data (glaciologists, oceanographers, climate modelers, earth scientists). ICAT aims to educate a new generation of ice core researchers and foster a collaborative environment for future glaciological projects.
This course will educate young scientists regarding new methods developed for the analysis of ice cores with regard to climate research, with dedicated theoretical and laboratory exercise sessions. The course has a registration fee of 100 euro, which will cover lectures, excursion, social and lunches. The European Project for Ice Coring in Antarctica has offered to support a number of students from EPICA partner countries. EGU also supports travel expenses for the attendance of key young researchers.
The deadline for applications is 1 June 2019, with notification of the Selection Committee's decision by 1 July 2019.
