FESSTVaL Summer School on ‘Observing and understanding submesoscale atmospheric dynamics’
FESSTVaL (Field Experiment on submesoscale spatio-temporal variability in Lindenberg) is a measurement campaign initiated by the Hans-Ertel-Center for Weather Research. It will take place in the summer months of the year 2021 at the Meteorological Observatory Lindenberg – Richard-Aßmann-Observatorium (MOL-RAO) of the German Meteorological Service (DWD) near Berlin. In May, June and July 2021, a hybrid Summer School is offered by the participating scientists of FESSTVaL, complemented by additional lecturers. As FESSTVaL is a joint project of about a dozen scientists from seven different institutions in Germany, most of them being junior scientists (PhD and Postdoc), the working environment is dynamic and expert knowledge is brought together. For further information on the campaign, please visit http://fesstval.de/en/
In the period from end of May to the end of July, one group of students per week (8 groups in total) with a maximum of 4 participants per week will be hosted at the Meteorological Observatory in Lindenberg near Berlin. During this week, the group works on a scientific project suggested by the organising team. Results of the projects are presented within the frame of the FESSTVaL Virtual Summer Seminar on each Friday afternoon. Project supervisors are also on site to assist the groups. Additionally, a dedicated lecture will be given on each Monday within the frame of the FESSTVaL Lecture Series. Both, the FESSTVaL Lecture Series and FESSTVaL Virtual Summer Seminar are live broadcasted, recorded and open for online participation for those students not being on site. FESSTVaL Virtual Summer Seminars take place on 8 – 10 consecutive dates, once a week, see http://fesstval.de/concept for details. The program will provide participants with insights into observing and understanding submesoscale atmospheric dynamics, such as convective scale observations from different platforms, submesoscale dynamics and modeling. The deadline for submission of your application is 31 January 2021. More information and details about the submission can be found at http://fesstval.de/application.
