SVALI PhD course: “Dynamics of Calving Glaciers”, 5 ECTS

Anna Sinisalo
Dear Colleagues,
we would like to draw your attention to a PhD level course “Dynamics of
Calving Glaciers” held on Svalbard in September  3-17, 2012. All the
course attendees must also complete 2 days of safety training on August
30 and 31. The course is organised by the University Centre in Svalbard
  (UNIS) in collaboration with the Nordic Centre of Excellence SVALI
(http://ncoe-svali.org/).

The students on this course will obtain:
• Knowledge of recent changes to calving glaciers in Greenland,
Antarctica, Svalbard, and other regions
• An understanding of the key glaciological processes underlying calving
glacier behavior
• Awareness of major unsolved research problems and insight into how
these may be addressed
• Practical experience of numerical modelling and remote sensing

The course is suitable for PhD students and post docs with a background
in glaciology or related discipline. Preference will be given to
students involved in the SVALI project.

Extended deadline for registration: 15 May 2012.
