Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


lyer-NORP_CMIP_BOOTCAMPThe CLIVAR/CliC Northern Oceans Region Panel will organize a CMIP6 Bootcamp focusing on the Arctic processes in October in Helgoland Germany.

Why a “Bootcamp”?

Although there could be some lectures as well, focused on the topics of study (e.g. on modelling and/or CMIP and/or the Arctic Ocean processes), the idea is to have Early Career Researchers focus on “grand challenges” and to try to move the science forward using the tools and experience within their small groups as well as the advice and experience of the senior scientist mentors.

Goal of the Bootcamp

The content of this Bootcamp will include scientific lectures, introduction to CMIP data, and applying the CMIP data. The main goals will be:

  • Learn how to work with climate model (CMIP6) data, from the modellers who produced them.
  • Use these data in conjunction with other datasets to answer crucial scientific questions about the past, present or future Arctic climate system, under the guidance of experts in the field.
  • Contribute to publications resulting from the Bootcamp.

Working Language

English will be the main working language.

Grants and register

We will provide a limited number of grants to support the attendance of some selected participants. Those from developing countries will have the priority to get the funds. A selection committee will be set-up to select the most qualified applications to receive financial assistance. You will be asked to identify your financial request in the registration system. There will be some registration fees for those who don’t get the funding.
Please register via this online system by the end of 29th April. All candidates will be informed of the outcome latest by 17 June.


This Bootcamp is intended for early-career scientists with research interests in climate and ocean, especially in the Arctic process study. The applicants must have a good command of English and should know computing skills. 


Experts from various fields of global and regional climate observations and modelling will guide you through different parts of the Bootcamp.
