Advanced Climate Dynamics Courses (ACDC) offers its 2011 summer program, "Dynamics of Warm Climates," to advanced graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

This year's summer school has three objectives:
1) to provide students working with proxy records with an adequate background in dynamics and modeling so they understand and appreciate the strengths and weaknesses in theory and models;
2) to provide students working with dynamics and climate models with an adequate background on the strengths and weaknesses in proxy records;
3) to bring all students up to speed on the dynamics of past warm climates, and on the strength and weaknesses of the hypotheses that have been proposed to explain the observed high latitude warmth.

Applications are due on May 15th, 2011. For more information, visit the program website.
