7th International Baltic Earth Summer School

August 23, 2021 – August 30, 2021 all-day
Askö, Sweden

The course will focus on past and future changes in climate of the Baltic Sea region. The Baltic Sea is a semi-enclosed sea with a large freshwater supply from rivers of the adjacent catchment area in the transition zone between maritime and continental climates in northern Europe.
Students will be introduced into fundamental processes of the atmosphere, ocean, sea-ice and land surface with relevance for the climate system.
Further basic methods of the analysis and modeling of the regional climate system will be introduced, including the statistical analysis of time series to identify changes in regional climate. students will also be introduced into the functioning of the wind-driven and thermohaline circulations of the Baltic Sea. Furthermore, the course will deal with coupled atmosphere-ocean climate models, climate change, the greenhouse gas effect and other drivers of regional climate, dynamical downscaling, and the variability of circulation and regional climate.

Application Deadline: 1 May 2021
