The 4th ICOS Summer School (previously known as InGOS/TTorch Summer School) "Challenges in measurements of greenhouse gases and their interpretation" will again be held in 2017 at Hyytiälä field station in Finland. The school will be organized in four sections:

  • Ecosystem fluxes and measurements
  • Atmospheric composition and measurements (in-situ and remote sensing)
  • Modeling of the global climate, carbon cycle, atmospheric transport and chemistry
  • Data management and cloud ('big data') methods 

The last two sections will each include a practical session.

Lecturers include: Christoph Gerbig, Martin Heimann, Maarten Krol, Wouter Peters, Anders Lindroth, Greet Maenhout and Timo Vesala.
