Summer School on "Physics of the Ocean" on 12-17 July 2020 in Bad Honnef, Germany

Apply by 7 February for the upcoming Ocean Physics Summer School 2020 organized by Martin Visbeck (GEOMAR & Kiel University, Germany), Sabrina Speich (Ecole Normale Sup rieure - PSL, France) and David Marshall (Oxford University, UK) and run by the Bad Honnef Physics school supported by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation.

 

The Ocean Physics Summer School aims at providing a broader view of the ocean system from a physical perspective, encompassing a large range of scales and their interactions. Other than receiving lectures, the students will participate through various activities such as poster sessions, exercises, discussions and a field excursion. There will be a set of Super Problems introduced at the beginning of the summer school; the students will work on these problems throughout the summer school and present their results/ solutions at the end. Participants are urged to contribute to the summer school by presenting work of their own, generally in the form of posters and active participation in discussion and working sessions.

 

Who can apply?

Young scientists - advanced master students, graduate students and first year postdocs - from all over Europe and beyond from all fields with an interest in physics who want to increase their knowledge about the ocean can apply for participation in the summer school "Physics of the Ocean".
