NASA JPL Center for Climate Sciences Summer School 2016

Applications close Friday 27 May

Each year, JPL’s Center for Climate Sciences (CCS), along with co-sponsors, the Keck Institute for Space Studies (KISS) at Caltech and NASA’s Earth Science Division, brings together the next generation of climate scientists to engage with premier climate scientists from NASA, universities and other agencies. Applications are now being accepted from science and engineering graduate students and postdocs to fill approximately 24 slots for the 2016 event. You can find information about the school, as well as a link to apply at: All student travel, accommodation, and per diem expenses will be paid.

This annual event focuses on "Using Satellite Observations to Advance Climate Models". Students will explore how satellite observations can be used to evaluate and improve climate models, and will hear from a range of speakers on climate model diagnostics and evaluation in remote sensing of the planet.

Program Topics include:

  • Global Climate Models
  • Satellite Remote Sensing
  • Climate Model Diagnostics and Evaluation

Most participants will be graduate students or postdoctoral researchers that are actively engaged in climate modelling, using satellite observations of Earth, or researching the physical climate system. However, we will also consider applications from Master’s degree students working in this area.
