Ice Core Analysis Techniques (ICAT) PhD school-2019

The ICAT PhD school (2 ECTS) is aimed at PhD students and junior postdocs who conduct ice core analysis or are users of ice core data (glaciologists, oceanographers, climate modelers, earth scientists).
ICAT aims to educate a new generation of ice core researchers and foster a collaborative environment for future glaciological projects.

This course will educate young scientists regarding new methods developed for the analysis of ice cores with regard to climate research, with dedicated theoretical and laboratory exercise sessions.

LECTURERS INCLUDE:  Kumiko Goto-Azuma, Rachael Rhodes, Peter Neff, Tobias Erhardt, Thomas Blunier, Dorthe Dahl-Jensen, Christine Hvidberg, Paul Vallelonga, Sune Olander Rasmussen, Bo Vinther, Helle Astrid Kjær, and more…

APPLICATION: The application deadline was June 1st 2019. Applications are now closed. 

REGISTRATION FEE: The course has a registration fee of 100 euro, which will cover lectures, excursion, social and lunches.

The European Project for Ice Coring in Antarctica has offered to support a number of students from EPICA partner countries. The travel support includes "reasonable" travel expenses and shared accommodation in Copenhagen from Sunday 22nd September to Sunday 29 September. In addition EGU also supports travel expenses for the attendance of key young researchers.

The Ice Core Analysis Techniques (ICAT) PhD School offers participants a detailed introduction to the variety of climate and geophysical information that can be obtained from ice cores. The school aims to bring together leading ice core researchers and emerging young scientists; covering such diverse topics as ice core analysis, experimental techniques, integration of ice core data into models, statistics, mapping and non-destructive analysis techniques. We aim to provide a new forum for young ice core scientists to meet, learn and build a common experience for future collaborations.

The PhD school is available for early career researchers such as PhD’s and postdocs.  Travel support may be available based on excellence of applications.


The PhD school is available for early career researchers such as PhD’s and postdocs. 

Some places are available for junior scientists. The course can accommodate 24 students. Prior detailed knowledge/background in ice cores is not a prerequisite and we strongly support applicants from a modelling background working with ice cores to also apply.
