The Summer School is held annually in September on the Isle of Arran. The first week of the course will be held at the Kildonan Hotel on the south coast of the island and includes lecture presentations from expert atmospheric scientists. The remaining seven days are be held at the Lochranza Field Centre to the north of the island. Here students carry out various field measurement activities.
The course has been designed for:
- PhD Students who are researching a specific area of atmospheric science, in order to give them a broad overview of the atmospheric system, and/or
- PhD Students whose research project involves fieldwork, in order to introduce them to principles of atmospheric fieldwork including instrumentation, data analysis and organising fieldwork.
- Early-career researchers new to atmospheric science and working in the field.
For more in-depth information about the content of the course please see the about the course page.
Please do note that this course involves a week of outdoor atmospheric measurement activities.
