Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

 

Preparations for our forthcoming training school on glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) are nearly complete, the training school will run between Monday 26th and Friday 30th August 2019. The training school was significantly over-subscribed, so it has been made possible to follow the lectures remotely, both in real time, or shortly afterwards if time zones make this difficult. The lectures will cover a wide range of subjects relating to GIA.

A few notes:

 

- the training school will run between Monday 26th and Friday 30th August 2019. A preliminary agenda has been posted on the POLENET website (http://polenet.org/2019-glacial-isostatic-adjustment-gia-training-school). The first virtual participation (VP) session will be the lecture at 11:15 on the Monday morning, but check back for last minute revisions to timings. Times refer to the local time in Sweden.

 

- information about how to join via the VP option will be posted on the POLENET website approximately one week before the start of the training school.

 

- a separate link will be assigned for each lecture. For those who are unable to watch in real time, we anticipate being able to upload a recording of each lecture within a few hours. If you can join us in real time then you will have the option to post questions to the lecturers via the VP portal.

 

- note that some sessions involve computer exercises. We will endeavour to provide as much information as possible to allow you to have a go at these exercises, but will not be able to provide support as you work through them.

 

- if you would like to receive updates, and instructions for how to access the training school preparation material, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

This is not a requirement; you can also join on the day or view the lectures at some point in the future by following the instructions that will appear on the POLENET page.

 

The training school is generously sponsored by NSF (via the POLENET project), SCAR (via the SERCE research program), EGU, IACS, and DTU Space. We are also grateful to the lecturers who will give up their time to attend.
