TU Delft Summer School on Sea Level Change

This Summer School will provide Ph.D.
students and junior scientists specializing in
sea level research with a basic introduction to
the dynamics of current and future sea level
change and to state-of-the-art tools to measure
and project it. The different contributors to
global and regional sea level change will
be presented by world-leading experts. The
school has a strong component on “hands-on”
learning, with practical exercises on the
observation and modelling of sea level change,
its contributors, and forcing mechanisms.
Participants will also receive a training on
science communication.

This Summer School will cover the
most important physical processes contributing
to sea level change and the main observations
thereof. The focus is on the dynamics of these
processes, on how they are modelled, on how
past and current changes can be observed,
and on current limitations in our understanding
of sea level variations, including our ability to
project future changes.


The school is open to PhD students and
junior post-docs working on sea-level related
subjects. The registration fee is depending on
accommodation type and includes full board,
excursion and course material (fee: EUR 400
in 4+ people rooms, EUR 600 in twin rooms).
There are 20 places available for each type.
To register, please send an e-mail to
Secr-grs-citg@tudelft.nl, specifying “Sea-level
Summer School” in the subject, by 1 March
2019. Your application should include a PDF
containing a statement on why you want to
participate in the school, a short description
of your research project (max 200 words),
your affiliation and name of supervisor, and
the preferred accommodation type.
Shortly after the registration deadline, you will
receive notification whether your application
has been accepted and instructions on how
to wire the registration fee, which will need to
be received by 30 April 2019.
