Application Deadline: 2019 Glacial Isostatic Adjustment (GIA) Training School

When: 
31 March 2019
Where: 

A training school focused on exploring glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) modelling will be held from 26-30 August 2019 at Lantmäteriet, Gävle, Sweden. The program will include lectures and practical exercises aimed at investigating the interactions between solid Earth deformation, ice mass change, and associated sea-level and geoid variations.

The course is targeted at individuals who are working on (or will soon start working on) GIA modelling, or topics directly related to GIA modelling. It is aimed at graduate students and early career scientists, but all interested parties are encouraged to apply regardless of age or experience level. An introduction to the fundamentals and applications of GIA modelling will be provided, no previous modelling experience is required.

The preliminary list of instructors is: Mike Bentley, Martin Ekman, Erik Ivins, Matt King, Glenn Milne, Frank Pattyn, Riccardo Riva, Giorgio Spada, Rebekka Steffen, Wouter van der Wal, Julia Wellner, Pippa Whitehouse, Doug Wiens, and Terry Wilson.

There is no registration fee for the training school. We have secured sufficient funds to be able to offer at least partial travel and subsistence support for all attendees (details on the application page). We are grateful for financial support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) through the Antarctic Network (ANET) component of the Polar Earth Observing Network (POLENET) project, the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) through the Solid Earth Response and influence on Cryospheric Evolution (SERCE) program, the International Association of Cryospheric Sciences (IACS), the European Geosciences Union (EGU), and DTU Space.

Deadline for applications is 31 March 2019.
