The 2nd SCAR Summer School on Polar Geodesy will be held in Russia (near St Petersburg) from 10 to 19 May 2018. The school is supported by SCAR's Expert Group on Geodetic Infrastructure in Antarctica (GIANT) and by the SCAR Research Programme Solid Earth Responses and influences on Cryospheric Evolution (SERCE).
The school provides a concise course on geodetic ground‐based and satellite methods, focussed on polar applications, in combination with lectures on geophysics and glaciology. The school is aimed at Masters and PhD students, as well as young scientists (age limit: 30 years), to draw their interest to polar research and to the cooperation of different geo-scientific disciplines to carry out investigations both in the Arctic and Antarctic. The programme comprises lectures, exercises and practical work.
Any questions about the Summer School can be addressed to Mirko Scheinert.
