The 12th Atmospheric Measurement Summer School will take place at the Arran Outdoor Centre, Lamlash from Monday 8 - Friday 19 May 2017. This 12 day practical course is aimed at first and second year PhD students and Early Career Researchers who are new to atmospheric field work.

The course is delivered by expert atmospheric scientists from across the UK and is based around an intensive field measurement programme involving activities such as:

  • Practical weather forecasting using synoptic charts and other data.
  • Profiling the atmosphere using radiosondes and surface measurements on a mountain.
  • Data logging and working with field instruments
  • Investigation of atmospheric trace gases and aerosols.

Applications have now closed for this course and we will be in touch with applicants by mid-February.

We are pleased to announce that the Atmsopheric Field Measurement School has been awarded a NERC Advanced Training Short Course Award which means that we are able to offer fully funded bursaries, including travel costs to a number of students attending the course.  These bursaries will be awarded on merit, but giving priority to NERC funded students.  All applications will be considered for a bursary.
