The BC3, the Basque centre for climate change is carrying out its IV Summer School from 8th- 10th of July, 2013 at the Palacio Miramar in San Sebastian.
The objective of the BC3 summer school is to offer an updated and multidisciplinary view of the ongoing trends in climate change research. The BC3 summer school is organized in collaboration with the University of the Basque Country and is a high quality and excellent summer course gathering leading experts in the field and students from top universities and research centres worldwide.
This year the 2013 summer school, entitled “Addressing Climate Change Challenges from a Multidisciplinary Perspective”, will be structured similarly to IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change) assessment reports. For this purpose, we have invited researchers that can help us to better understand the biophysical part behind the economics of climate change. The course will have three main sessions/days, each of them focusing on one of the subjects of the IPCC Working Groups: climate science; adaptation and impacts; and mitigation of climate change. An IPCC-member scientist will be a keynote lecturer for each session. After that, top leading invited speakers will cover in more detail the main key issues in the climate change research agenda.
The topics that will be covered this year are: artic sea ice dynamics; ocean circu
The school is open to Master students, PhD students, postdoctoral fellows and other researchers as well as policy makers interested in acquiring a deep understanding of climate change and the policies designed to fight it.lation models and their implications for state-shift events; sea level rise projections and implications; impacts of climate change on water, food and health; mitigation options: technologies and cost; climate policies at global level, and economic instruments.
PhD students and postdoctoral participants will have the opportunity to present their work in a specific poster session and get feedback from the faculty.
