October 24, 2014

At the Bolin Centre Summer School 2015 you will learn about isotopes in biogeochemical cycles of climatically active substances such as water, carbon compounds and aerosols. Other topics are the use of isotopes in reconstructing the state of the past climate and in studying Earth system processes. An important part will be lectures describing how isotopes are measured in various media.

The five day course will comprise four days with morning and late afternoon lectures allowing time for afternoon field trips. The sites of interest include raised shorelines, glaciated landscapes, peatlands, machair and (of course) one of Islay’s eight distilleries. On the fifth day, we will visit classic examples of Neoproterozoic glacial deposits and stromatolite-bearing cap carbonates, which have been cited as evidence for near global glaciations.

This position is open to PhD students and early career scientists, it will take place in Port Charlotte, Islay, Scotland from August 23-29, 2015.

The Deadline to apply is February 1, 2015
