Winter school on the observation and modeling of high-latitude and Arctic clouds



From Sunday 19 March 2017
To Saturday 25 March 2017


The winter school is an advanced course intended for graduate students and researchers who want to receive up-to-date knowledge on the observation and modeling of clouds and precipitation, with a specific focus on Arctic and high-latitude clouds. The course is structured around a combination of lectures and hands-on experience using data from research-grade radars (US DOE ARM and ACTRIS), in situ sensors and state-ofthe-art models. The course topics include: cloud and precipitation observations (cloud radars, lidars, solar and microwave radiometers, in situ sensors), cloud modeling, precipitation formation, boundary layer modeling.


Lecturers: S. Crewell (U. Cologne), K. Ebell (U. Cologne), A. Ehrlich (U.Leipzig), P. Kollias (Stony Brook U.), D. Moisseev (U. Helsinki), E. O’Connor (FMI), J. Quaas (U. Leipzig), H.Russchenberg (TUDelft), M. Shupe (NOAA), V. Sinclair (U. Helsinki), M. Wendisch (U.Leipzig)


Program: The school program consists of 2-3 lectures per day plus group work. The group work will focus on analysing data and performing model simulations.

Participation costs: 600 €
