ICAT PhD school 2017
Week 39 -2017
Scope and participation:
The PhD course is aimed at PhD students and junior postdocs who conduct ice core analysis or are users of ice core data (glaciological, oceanographic, climate modelers).
The results from ice cores cannot be fully appreciated without understanding the analytical techniques behind the measurements as well as the implicit assumptions related to the emission, transport and deposition of the species analysed.
These include a variety of approaches such as continuous flow analysis (CFA) for the analysis of impurities, but also ion chromatography, ICP-MS and a number of other methods used for high resolution measurements of the impurity content in ice cores. Laser spectroscopy has replaced older-generation technology such as mass spectrometry for the analysis of some gases preserved in polar ice.
ICAT aims to educate a new generation of ice core researchers and foster a collaborative environment for future glaciological projects.
The course will enhance the knowledge between PhD’s within the ice core community on new methods developed for the analysis of ice core climate.
Application will open shortly and the application deadline is 1st of June.

Extended PI meeting -DO theme
The dates are now fixed for the NEGIS workshop and EGRIP Steering Committee meeting 2017. I have been asking around and this seems to be the best we can do.
I would like to ask the consortia chairs to plan when they want to have their meeting (and if they need one or two blocks for the meeting). The consortia list is here: consortia-meetings-2016
After the EGRIP fieldseason, beginning of September, I will email all chairs again to finalize the program.
The NEGIS workshop is intended to be a workshop covering all activites on NEGIS – from iceridge to ocean. I would ask you to email me if you are interested in participating and also names (and emails) for researchers outside the EGRIP community we would like to invite.
the very best

The EuroScience Open Forum will be hosted in July 2018 in Toulouse, France. The Université Fédérale Toulouse Midi-Pyrénées, together with an impressive number of national and regional institutions and partners, will be responsible for the event. Toulouse and the Région Occitanie offer a comprehensive research portfolio covering all disciplines and providing a scientific environment of great international repute with strong links with the industry, that ranks among the highest in France in terms of scientific production. EuroScience is convinced that Toulouse will add its name as another major European city to the European Cities of Science that have organized ESOF since 2004 in Stockholm.
