Scope and Participation
The course is meant for Ph.D. students and provides a basic introduction to the dynamics of glaciers and ice sheets with a focus on ice-climate interactions.
Topics include: continuum mechanics, kinematics, ice rheology, sliding and hydraulics, numerical modelling, polar meteorology, ice-ocean interaction, ice cores, interaction of ice sheets with the solid earth, glacier fluctuations, etc.
Lectures will be given in the morning and exercises (including computer projects) in the afternoon. An excursion will be organised to nearby glaciers.
The standard registration fee is € 900. This covers lodging, full board, excursion and course material. The International Glaciological Society offers three fellowships to cover the registration for students that qualify but have difficulties to pay the fee (This requires a justification!).
