The Water Vapour in the Climate System (WAVACS) COST winter school will provide a detailed view of atmospheric water vapour and its role in the climate system. The course is aimed primarly at PhD students, postdocs and other young scientists wishing to broaden and deepen their knowledge or to identify new research opportunities.
The course will include lectures and practical sessions.
There is no charge for registering to attend the school and 28 grants to cover shared lodging, meals and local transportation are available.
