Climate System Modeling: Downscaling techniques and practical applications

Mon, Jul 16, 8:00 am to Sat, Jul 28, 5:00 pm
Location: 
International Arctic Research Center
Speaker Name: 
Vladimir Alexeev, John Walsh, Scott Rupp, and Stephen Gray

The goal of this two-week course is to bring graduate students together with decision makers and academic specialists in climate science to delve into the challenges and opportunities of climate modeling. The course is sponsored by the Department of Interior's Alaska Climate Science Center and hosted by the University of Alaska Fairbanks. The main focus will be to learn to apply global and regional model output at the local scale. Students will be introduced to major components of the climate system, learn how that information is useful to stakeholders, and learn about the challenges of communicating climate science to society. The summer school will consist of a combination of lectures, field trips to research sites, mini-projects, and discussions. All participants will give a short presentation at the end of the two-weeks.
