Carbon-Climate Connections in the Earth System (29 July - 16 August 2013, NCAR - Boulder, Colorado, USA)

29
Jul
2013

This colloquium is designed for graduate students who have completed at least one-year in a field related to biogeochemistry or Earth System modeling. The colloquium will focus on the physical, biological, and chemical mechanisms that regulate the global carbon cycle. It will feature lectures from international experts on key aspects of the carbon cycle and its representation in Earth System models. Lectures will address both terrestrial and ocean biogeochemical systems, and include observational and modeling perspectives. Furthermore, lectures will be given on coupled climate modeling and analytical techniques relevant to carbon cycle science. Tutorials and computer-based exercises will provide experience working with models spanning a range of complexity. Student projects will examine the behavior of cutting-edge Earth System models in simulations submitted to phase 5 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5).
