Project Description

November-December 2021 – MEGAPOLIS-2021 Online Yong Scientist School on Multi-Scales and -Processes Integrated Modelling, Observations and Assessment for Environmental Applications

The University of Helsinki, Institute for Atmospheric and Earth System Research and Moscow State University are organizing the Young Scientist School on “Multi-Scales and -Processes Integrated Modelling, Observations and Assessment for Environmental Applications” in Memory of Professor Sergej Zilitinkevich (1936-2021). The School will take place online during 15 Nov – 3 Dec 2021 and will promote for research community, and especially, for the younger generation, the importance of atmospheric and environmental sciences, approaches in the Earth system modelling and their applications.

The School will introduce young generation of researchers to special topics in atmospheric and environmental sciences, Earth system modelling approaches and applications, especially considering transport and fate of small (micro) particles. During the school, participants will learn about the current progress and challenges in Earth system research; meteorological, hydrological and atmospheric composition modelling and observations (including ground-based and remote-sensing); and modern technologies for environmental studies and assessments (including health impacts). The programme will consist theoretical lectures and practical exercises, which were accomplished by groups/teams of students as small-scale research projects. The School is worth 5 credits of ECTS (European Credit Transfer System).
