TTORCH Summer School greenhouse gas concentrations & fluxes

29.05.2011, Age: 2639 days

This first TTORCH Summer School "Challenges in measurement and modeling of greenhouse gas concentrations and fluxes" will take place between 27 September and 4 October 2011 at Hyytiälä Forestry Field Station, in Finland. he school is mainly oriented to PhD students, but a number of PostDocs and master students preparing to start a Doctorate will be accepted, as well as scientists or technicians new in the field.

Local hosts are Leena Järvi, Timo Vesala and Ivan Mammarella. The school will be organized in three sections: Atmospheric composition, Atmospheric measurements and Atmospheric modeling. The last two sections will each include a practical session.

Lecturers include: Christoph Gerbig, Martin Heimann, Sander Houweling, Jürgen Kesselmeier, Maarten Krol, Ingeborg Levin, Anders Lindroth, John Moncrieff, Xavier Rodó, and Timo Vesala.

The school is mainly oriented to PhD students, but a number of PostDocs and master students preparing to start a Doctorate will be accepted, as well as scientists or technicians new in the field.

To apply the candidate should prepare a document containing the CV, a short description of her / his work and a recommendation letter of the supervisor. The selection will take into account the connection between the candidate’s research subject and the TTORCH focus. Space is limited and applications will be treated on a first come, first go basis.
Deadline for application through the TTORCH web-site is June 15, 2011.

Most of the costs (accommodation, catering, organization, transport from Helsinki to Hyytiälä and lectures) will be covered from TTORCH funds.
The students will have to arrange and pay themselves the travel to Helsinki.

TTORCH (Tall Tower and surface Observation Research Network for verification of Climate relevant emissions of Human origin in Europe) is an ESF Research Networking Programme focusing on measurements and modelling of non‐CO2 greenhouse gases (CH4, N2O, SF6) and related tracers (e.g., CO, H2, 14CO2, O2/N2).
The main purpose of TTORCH is to support and help improve the European network of observations of greenhouse gases through communication, workshops, grants for exchange visits and summer schools.
