The training school will focus on exploring glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) modelling. The programme will include lectures and practical exercises aimed at investigating the interactions between solid Earth deformation, ice mass change, and associated sea-level and geoid variations. Students will complete homework exercises utilizing freely available modelling software and will have the opportunity to spend one-to-one time with leading researchers in the GIA community while working through examples in class. A field trip to examine records of land uplift and sea level change will be included.
The course is targeted at individuals who are working on (or will soon start working on) GIA modelling, or topics directly related to GIA modelling. While the course is aimed at graduate students and early career scientists, all interested parties are encouraged to apply regardless of age or experience level. A basic introduction to the fundamentals and applications of GIA modelling will be provided, and no previous modelling experience is required.
Applications open on 1 November 2022 until 31 January 2023. There is no registration fee and some financial support is available for travel and subsistence.
Full details are available on the 2023 GIA School website.
