Bornö Summer School in Ocean Dynamics @ Stora Borno, Sweden
Jul 30 – Aug 12 all-day

Organiser/Responsible person: Joe LaCasce / UiO

Target group: Beginning students in oceanography

Credit points: 5 ECTS

Registration form here. (closed)

Registration deadline: 7 June

Max. no. of CHESS participants: 4


The Borno Summer School is a two week summer school covering topics in ocean dynamics. During the school, the students will code their own numerical ocean model, while learning about fundamental dynamics. They will also conduct experiments with the models to study the phenomena
discussed in the lectures. The course is aimed primarily at beginning students in oceanography.

The course takes place at a hydrological station on the island of Stora Borno, off the west coast of Sweden. The station lies directly on the Gullmarsfjord, allowing observations to be made in the local ocean. Lecturers and students stay at the station, and a cook will prepare meals. Students from Denmark, Sweden and Germany will participate as well, in addition to those from Norway. Space is limited at the station. The island is roughly 4 km long, covered with pine trees and is very scenic.

Lecturers:
Week 1: Carsten Eden (Univ. Hamburg), Markus Jochum (Univ. Copenhagen)
Week 2: Joe LaCasce (Univ. Oslo), Jonas Nycander (Univ. Stockholm)

Crash Course on Data Assimilation @ NERSC
May 22 – May 25 all-day

Course organisers: Alberto Carrassi/NERSC, Laurent Bertino/NERSC and Geir Evensen/IRIS & NERSC

Credits: 2 ECTS

Max. no. of participants: 30 (10 CHESS students)


The summer school : “Crash Course on Data Assimilation – Theoretical foundations and advanced applications with focus on ensemble methods” is part of CHESS initiative and is organised by NERSC. The course targets geoscientists with a background in mathematical and physical modeling, who are interested in the rapid development of data assimilation and its growing domains of application in environmental science, but so far have not delved into its conceptual and methodological complexities. In particular, PhD students and early stage scientists with beginner or no notions of data assimilation intending to apply data assimilation as part of their research are encouraged to participate.

The course will cover the basic notions of data assimilation, focusing on ensemble methods, illustrated with real-scale/operational applications and with the aid of practical exercises.

Data Assimilation Summer School @ Universitatea Politehnica Timisoara, Timisoara, Romania
Jul 22 – Aug 2 all-day

The 6th data assimilation summer school aims to educate and to familiarize graduate students (MSc and PhD) with the basic concepts of data assimilation, to illustrate them by applications and to offer an overview of special topics related to the challenges and issues of data assimilation in the geosciences.
The summer school will set an arena for discussions and debates around the big data challenge presents in practical applications of these methodologies: hydrology, atmospheric sciences, oceanography and geosciences.
This summer school targets primarily students and researchers at an early stage of their career with/without previous experience in data assimilation.
CHESS will support 5 PhD members to participate in the school.
