WCRP SPARC Austral Summer School in Argentina
Dynamics and chemistry of atmospheric variability and change
17-28 February 2020
School of Exact and Natural Sciences, University of Buenos
[+++ Unfortunately, Summer School had to be cancelled. We hope for the organization of the course in the future. [+++]
The course is mainly intended for early career
scientists and PhD students working in areas of Atmospheric Physics
and Dynamics, Climatology, Oceanography, Physics, and Chemistry,
from South America institutions. Participants should have an
adequate working knowledge of English. Participants are required to
take part in all aspects of this activity for its entire duration. There is
no registration fee.
The course will consist of two weeks of
lectures, seminars, discussion and practical exercises with toy models.
Main topics are: Stratospheric dynamics and transport, Stratospheric
chemistry and the ozone hole, Stratosphere-troposphere dynamical
coupling, Stratosphere-troposphere radiative and chemical coupling,
Storm track dynamics, Tropospheric ozone and air pollution,
Scenario-driven approach to climate change, Storyline approach to
