Polar and Alpine Events Calendar
To Tuesday 16 June 2020
The summer school has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The organisers plan to run it in summer 2021 instead.
The Sixth International Summer School in Glaciology organized by the University of Alaska, Fairbanks (UAF), will be held in McCarthy, central Alaska, from 6 to 16 June 2020.
The course will provide a comprehensive overview of the physics of glaciers and current research frontiers in glaciology with focus on quantitative glaciology and remote sensing. The course is open to 28 graduate students from around the world targeting primarily early stage PhD students who perform glacier-related research. It will be taught by faculty of UAF’s glaciology group and several invited guest instructors from outside Alaska.
Application deadline: 25 January 2020
