Pubblicato da in Corsi ·

Nicolosi - Etna, Italy, 28 September – 6 October, 2018


This training school is organized by researchers of Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV), the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate, National Research Council (ISAC-CNR), the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy (BIRA-IASB), the Oxford University, the University of Sofia and the University of Trieste.

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 for supporting policy makers, early warning systems and aviation safety.

The extreme atmospheric event cloud detection is a high multidisciplinary and challenging topic since the same techniques and instruments can be used for meteorology, volcanic monitoring, atmospheric physics and climate purposes. Within all these fields there are still many unsolved issues making this school fundamental for creating a new generation of scientists able to use the synergy of several different instruments and techniques.

Each topic includes keynote plenary lectures with in-depth discussion. The school will consist of lectures combined with the practical application of the material covered in the lectures through introductory lab sessions and a set of research problems that will form the core of the School. Through the introductory keynotes invited lectures, the students will be introduced to all the issues and challenges of the convective and volcanic clouds detection, monitoring and modeling, gaining an overview of the state of the art and the future development.

All the participants are expected to give a short talk or to present a poster about their own research; the selection of the talks will be done through evaluation process as in a regular conference. 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.

Convective and Volcanic Clouds detection, monitoring and modeling. Tarquinia, Italy, 18-25 October 2017.

Pubblicato da in Corsi ·
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.

The extreme atmospheric event cloud detection is a high multidisciplinary and challenging topic since the same techniques and instruments can be used for meteorology, volcanic monitoring, atmospheric physics and climate purposes. Within all these fields there are still many unsolved issues making this school fundamental for creating a new generation of scientists able to use the synergy of several different instruments and techniques. The air transportation became fundamental in the last decades for the World economy and social life, and volcanic or convective events can affect the regular management and operation creating large economic losses. This training school will support creating a new generation of scientists specialized on monitoring and detection of atmospheric extreme events supporting the safety of the citizens. Most of the young researchers are usually focused in a single subject (e.g. convection or volcanic eruption) and they are not in touch with final users to get their feedbacks, this school will be the occasion for broadening their horizons and for creating useful connections. We expect scientists and final users (such as pilots or early warning system technicians) meet during this course for discussing about common goals and for learning each other how to improve their work toward a proficient collaboration.

Second international Science Communication School (27-30 March 2017)

Pubblicato da in Corsi ·
Science Communication School
Castiglione del Lago, Italy, 27-30 March 2017

The Science Communicaion School SCS 2017 is the result of the collaboration of researchers from the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and  Climate, the University of Copenhagen and local organization provided by island of meetings (iom).
Over the past decades communication and outreach has become a fundamental concern of state-of-the-art research communities. The relationship between science and society has begun to change radically and communication has become a necessity. Important decisions involving scientists' research are no longer made by the scientific community but by politicians, private companies and by the media. Moreover the decisions often involve the general public whose opinion influences the politicians and the media behavior. For these and other reasons it is important to improve the dissemination of research and to convey the value of a scientific way of thinking even to those who have nothing to do with science. Furthermore it is important to improve how scientists share results with the scientific community, in order to enhance the quality of the research and to facilitate collaborations. It is necessary to learn how to make posters effective, how to communicate aims and methodologies in scientific papers and proposals, how to get projects funded. Traditional scientific training, typically does not prepare scientists and engineers to be effective communicators outside of academia.

Attending the school students will learn how to effectively convey important research results to a public of both experts and laypeople. Students will learn how to write an abstract, how to structure effectively a poster about their research, how to write a paper. Also students will receive coaching from experienced researchers and Euraxess experts on proposal and report drafting, and on how to improve communication to policymakers. Being involved in science communication activities will allow the students to gain communication technical skills that will be useful in their wider lives and will remind the students that science is an heritage that needs to be shared as a part of our culture.

The school has the aim of offering overview and training of scientific communication skills in all its forms. The school will treat communication not only with an "educative aim" but also with a "scientific aim". The lecturers will therefore not only present an overview of science communication from a theoretical point of view, but also will offer practical activities on abstract/paper writing and poster editing, on proposal and report drafting, and on how to improve communication to policymakers.

The school will consist of lectures combined with the practical application of the material covered in the lectures through lab sessions about the following topics:

  • How to write a scientific paper
  • How to write a proposal at international level
  • How to prepare a poster for conference/workshop
  • How to prepare a conference talk
  • Communication techniques
  • Communication to general public
  • Communication to students
  • Communication through social networks and internet
  • Communication to policymakers
  • Communication through the art and laboratories

All the lectures will be accompained by laboratories and students will experience concrete activities: for example each student will present a poster at the beginning of the school and posters will be corrected and improved at the end applying what learned during the school; at the end of the school students will try to provide accurate but concise information about their science to the general public recording a short movie (famelab-like) which will be published into the facebook group of the school to get feedbacks.

"Forecasters' Overview of the Mediterranean and Europe"

Pubblicato da in Corsi ·
The COMET Program is pleased to announce the publication of the new lesson, "Forecasters' Overview of the Mediterranean and Europe".

Weather forecasters new to or unfamiliar with the Mediterranean Sea or Europe may need a quick introductory overview in order to orient themselves and become familiar with the climatology and most challenging forecast problems in the region.
Frequently they are also called upon to address other natural phenomena that affect marine and aviation operations, including oceanography and natural hazards like waves, dust storms, volcanic eruptions, and tsunamis.
This 2.5-hour lesson is intended to provide forecasters with an introduction to the Mediterranean and Europe, including its geography, climatology, and the hazards and forecast problems they are likely to encounter. With its broad scope, the lesson should also appeal to students and members of the general public with an interest in learning more about the region.

We welcome any comments or questions you may have regarding the content, instructional approach, or use of this lesson. Please e-mail your comments or questions to Alan Bol (alanbol at ucar.edu). For technical support, please visit our Registration and Support FAQs.
