International Summer School on Global Greenhouse Gases

PosterPoster (PDF, 3Mb)

We are organising a summer school on 16-23 August 2015, aimed at advanced PhD students and post-doctoral researchers in the natural sciences who want to develop a solid understanding of the role of key greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the Earth system and the processes that govern their dynamics in the atmosphere, ocean and biosphere.

The residential course for 20-25 participants will be based at the University of Edinburgh and comprises a combination of lectures, practical exercise, seminars and field/lab work, organised by international experts in oceanography, atmospheric science and terrestrial biogeochemistry,

More details can be found on the website of the Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Feedback Programme.

End of Species - 18-25 August 2014

"End of species" is a monologue by Australian artist Richard Pettifer, arranged by ASCUS, the art-science collaborative, every day from 18th to 25th August 2014 at 8pm in Summerhall, interweaving his journey over land from Australia to Germany with Charles Darwin's famous journey. After the monologue, Richard had a "fireside chat" with a climate scientist - that was me.
