ACDC2011:  Dynamics of past warm climates

Friday Harbour laboratories, University of Washington, near Seattle, 30 August -11 September 2011

This years 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.

Theme
The main focus of this year's course will be on the dynamics of past warm climates
based on theory, models, and proxy data.
