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.

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