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

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.
