ICAT PhD school 2017

Week 39 -2017

Scope and participation:

The PhD course is aimed at PhD students and junior postdocs who conduct ice core analysis or are users of ice core data (glaciological, oceanographic, climate modelers).

The results from ice cores cannot be fully appreciated without understanding the analytical techniques behind the measurements as well as the implicit assumptions related to the emission, transport and deposition of the species analysed.

These include a variety of approaches such as continuous flow analysis (CFA) for the analysis of impurities, but also ion chromatography, ICP-MS and a number of other methods used for high resolution measurements of the impurity content in ice cores. Laser spectroscopy has replaced older-generation technology such as mass spectrometry for the analysis of some gases preserved in polar ice.

ICAT aims to educate a new generation of ice core researchers and foster a collaborative environment for future glaciological projects.

The course will enhance the knowledge between PhD’s within the ice core community on new methods developed for the analysis of ice core climate.

Application will open shortly and the application deadline is 1st of June.
