This month, FabSpace officially announced the new patronage activities for the 2018 International Summer School on Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (ISSAOS 2018) to be held on the 27th – 31st August 2018 in L’Aquila, Italy and is organised by the Center of Excellence for the Forecast of Severe Weather by Remote Sensing and Numerical Modeling (CETEMPS), University of L’Aquila, Italy, which is also one of the new launched FabSpaces international network. The purpose of the school is to illustrate the progress that has been made in the scientific ability to generate detailed climate projections at the regional scale. The theoretical lectures will be complemented by practical sessions on real environmental data analysis, and there will be ample opportunity to exchange ideas and questions among the students and the lecturers.
The main objectives of the school are thus to provide students with an insight into climate changes and impacts, as well as to associated uncertainties and their communication. Assessments on the most recent techniques for climate data analysis, for regional climate modeling techniques, for climate impact on hydrology and for quality assessment and validation of the observations will be provided.
The topics of the programme includes: Global change: overview of the climate system; Climate change impacts: analysis of the impacts at global and regional scale; Climate change uncertainties: and their communication overview of the uncertainties and role of communication; Regional climate modeling: RCM techniques; Climate impact on hydrology: impacts of the climate changes on hydrology; and Climate data analysis: techniques for climate data analysis.
The school is open for undergraduate and graduate (masters or doctoral) students and staffs (permanent or non-permanent). The school fees included lunch and coffee breaks at school location, social events (including ice breaker, city tour, and social dinner), and teaching materials. The school will be held at L’Aquila town. It is a Middle Age town, rich of art, history and wild nature. It is the capital city of Abruzzo and is located at an elevation of feet (714 meters), in a valley dominated by the highest mountain of the Appennines, the Gran Sasso d’Italia. L’Aquila is located between the National Park “Parco Nazionale del Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga” and the Re-gional Park “Parco Naturale Regionale del Sirente-Velino”. It is about 100 km East of Rome.
