Earth System Science Summer School 2014: Places available
The NERC Earth System Science Spring School, which is due to take place from 30 March -11 April, has recently had a few cancellations, so there are now a number of places available to NERC and non-NERC researchers alike. Please forward this information to anyone, particularly PhD and early-career researchers, who might be interested in attending the course.
Because of the short notice we are offering a reduced course fee, with £100 off the original cost. Course fees are now £200 (NERC)/ £400 (non-NERC) to attend, including all teaching, field trips, accommodation, meals and the conference dinner.
Fourth Annual Composition-Climate Meeting
The Fourth Annual Composition-Climate meeting, supported by NCAS and the Met Office, will take place on 3-4 April 2014 at the Met Office, FitzRoy Road, Exeter, EX1 3PB (http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/).
The meeting aims to bring together UK scientists from both ac.uk and the Met Office working on all aspects of atmospheric composition and the interaction with climate and the Earth system, including atmospheric chemistry, aerosols and land surface interactions. It will provide an opportunity to discuss the tools that are being used as well as the scientific problems being tackled. Invited and open presentations will cover new science with the UKCA model, other relevant components of Earth system models, as well as other chemistry-climate models.
Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTP's)
NERC funded PhD projects are now available through the Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs). Deadlines for most of the DTP's are in January 2014, for a start date in October 2014.
The National Centre for Atmospheric Science supports 9 of the 15 NERC DTP's. To find out about projects and to apply for a place please visit the websites listed below.
