Register for the ninth ODC training course on climate dynamics and air-sea interactions to be held in Qingdao

The UNESCO/IOC Regional Training and Research Center on Ocean Dynamics and Climate (ODC) will have its ninth training course on Climate Dynamics and Air-sea Interactions in Qingdao, China, 17-28 June 2019.

This Training Course is designed to develop the capacity of member states in the Western Pacific (suitable candidates from outside the region will also be welcome), who are involved in the climate dynamics and air-sea interactions. The training course will cover the basic theory of ENSO, MJO and monsoon dynamics, the climate dynamics in tropical oceans, the impact of hurricanes and tropical storms on the coast regions, the interactions of sea ice, ocean, atmosphere and land surface in high-latitude region, and the analyzing methods in climate dynamics and air-sea interactions. In addition, some lectures of scientific frontier will also designed to broaden the knowledge of the trainees, including the air-sea interaction in meso and submeso scales, the air-sea interactions in small scale and their applications in ocean-atmosphere coupled model.

 The number of trainees will be limited to around 40 and an online register system is available for the Training Course. The deadline for application is 10 April 2019.
