This summer school broadly treats the dynamics of the global cycle of fresh water among land, atmosphere, ocean, and ice reservoirs. Water cycling is treated over synoptic, seasonal, and longterm timescales from the perspectives of fundamental dynamics, empirical observations, and societal implications. Lectures will consist of a broad overview and then deeper research-level inquiries around themes of the oceanic and atmospheric transport of fresh water, extreme storm events and floods, soil moisture and its implications for agriculture, and ice-ocean interactions and implications for changes in sea level. A priority of the summer school is to identify a set of tractable research questions around the theme of the global water cycle – potentially spanning traditional disciplinary boundaries – and to make substantial group-level progress in researching answers to these questions. Some research projects are envisioned to leverage local information from the Abisko and Tarfala research stations, as well as dedicated time for field work during the school.
