Arctic in a Changing Climate 20190304-20190329

PhD Course

The course will give graduate students a broad holistic knowledge about the Arctic and how systems are affected by the ongoing climate change and poten-tially feed back to the climate system.

Lectures and seminars will cover several disciplines within Science (e.g. Atmosphere, Cryosphere, Terrestrial Ecology, Marine issues and Climate modelling) and aims to create a stimulating forum for graduate students with issues that force them to broaden their perspective from their own doctoral research. The course will further strengthen the scien-tific development of graduate student stripes within the Earth System Science and students will also gain in-depth knowledge of the ecological consequences of a changing Arctic. The course will also be launched for doctoral students in the graduate school ClimBEco organized by BECC and MERGE. The course is based on one lecturing week with preparation and after work from the home institute.

Week 1: Literature study (15-18 scientific papers)
Week 2: Lecturing week: 5 x 3-4.5 h lectures, 5 x 1.5-4 h discussion sessions, group work, and article presentation
Week 3: Preparation of written report
Week 4: Student peer review of report and final hand in of report
