Organised by the WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research SLF and the Finnish Meteorological Institute at the FMI Arctic Research Centre in Sodankylä, Finland. The school will teach advanced field techniques and relate these measurements to microwave and spectral albedo measurements. The course will consist of field and laboratory measurements combined with theoretical lessons in the classroom.
Any graduate student or post-doc working on snow or in some snow related field, this year especially in remote sensing of the cryosphere, is welcome to participate. Those fields include everybody interested in cryospheric sciences.
The course fee is approximately 350 Euro and covers full accommodation and meals at Sodankylä. Some funding is available to help students from less advantaged countries (see the website for details). Applications open in September until 30 October 2016.
