“Climate, Space Climate, and Connections Between”, NCAR Advanced Study Program (ASP) Summer ColloquiumFebruary 2, 2015, from David Williams (UKSP DC)
Deadline Approaching (Feb 13, 2015) for Applications to “Climate, Space Climate, and Connections Between”, NCAR Advanced Study Program (ASP) Summer Colloquium (July 6-17, 2015)
The ASP Summer Colloquium will bring together graduate students from both Atmospheric Science and Solar & Space Physics programs to study the interrelated subjects of terrestrial and space climate, in particular, how they respond to long-term solar variability and anthropogenic climate change. We aim to include a roughly even number of students from each discipline, and a similar mix of lecturers. The program will begin by laying a foundation of shared knowledge through basic subject tutorials on both sides. It continues with synthesis talks to explore concepts related to connections between these fields, and with focused research talks to build a picture of current hot topics and subjects of debate related to solar variability and climate/space climate research. Throughout, the students will be engaged in hands-on exercises relevant to the subjects covered, and will have the opportunity to work on a collaborative project during the second week of the program.
