4th training school on Convective and Volcanic Clouds (CVC) – ETNA Edition
Attending the school you will get an overview of the state of the art techniques and methods for detecting and monitoring the volcanic and convective clouds, you will know the different instruments and platforms allowing us to get the best performance in detecting such kind of clouds, you will be projected to the future learning about new missions planned for solving the main issues on these fields, you will be involved in real applications as early warming systems and modeling, you will directly analize the data.
The school topics will range from satellite instruments such as IR sensors or GPS radio occultations to aircraft measuremtents like lidar and radar, from study of ash and SO2 clouds to tropical cyclones, mediterranean hurricanes, land and maritime convection.
The purpose of the School is to train students with outstanding research interest in the techniques allowing to detect, monitor, and model convective and volcanic clouds, to gain knowledge of the instruments and satellite missions (present and future) and to be able to support such kind of studies. The double aim is to create a school managed by young scientists already well established and recognized in their respective fields for young scientists willing to reinforce or develop their knowledge on atmospheric extreme events detection and monitoring for supporting policy makers, early warning systems and aviation safety.
All the participants are expected to give a short talk or to present a poster about their own research. The students will leave the school with an increased understanding of the cutting-edge research questions and with the perspective of creating some future projects in this field also thanks to the network created during the school with the lecturers and other students.
It is possible to register for the convective clouds module (28 Sep – 1 Oct) or to the volcanic clouds module (3 Oct – 6 Oct) or for the whole training course (9 days). The simple registration fee includes coffee breaks and teaching material. The full board registration fee includes accommodation, meals, coffee breaks, excursion and teaching material. Every meal will be served in a different restaurant with typical local dishes, accommodation will be in B&B with quality and services equivalent to *** hotel or in a *** hotel.
