The international Summer School "Climate of the Baltic Sea Region" will take place for the fourth time in August 2018 at Askö Laboratory, Sweden, as part of the Master studies of Physics of the University of Rostock.
The course will focus on past and future changes in climate of the Baltic Sea region.
Students will be introduced into fundamental processes of the atmosphere, ocean, sea-ice and land surface with relevance for the climate system.
With the help of teachers from several disciplines, a holistic Earth System approach will be presented although the main focus of the course is on the physical aspects of changing climate. In addition to lectures, tutorials, exercises and literature studies the course will give the students the opportunity to discuss the learned topics further during group exercises.
In cooperation with the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research Warnemünde and the international Baltic Earth Network, the students are offered a high-quality education, which is complemented by guest lecturers from the Baltic Sea states.

Estimated number of participants: ~ 20 students from all Baltic Sea countries and several experienced lecturers/supervisors (will be announced soon)
