PhD School on Ice Core Techniques (ICAT) 2.0 ECTS
Scope and participation:
The PhD course (2 ECTS) is aimed at PhD students and junior postdocs who conduct ice core analysis or are users of ice core data (e.g. Glaciologists, Oceanographers, Climate modelers, Earth scientists). Ice core data cannot be fully appreciated without understanding the analytical techniques behind the measurements as well as the implicit assumptions related to emission, transport and deposition of the species analysed.
The course will focus on old and new analytical techniques used in ice core research, their caveats and uncertainties, as well as their importance for climate interpretations. We will discuss continuous flow analysis, ion chromatography and a number of other methods used for high resolution measurement of the impurity content in ice cores. We also cover laser spectroscopy techniques complementing mass spectrometry and gas chromatography for the analysis of trace gases and stable water isotopes in polar ice.
ICAT aims to educate a new generation of ice core researchers and foster a collaborative environment for future glaciological projects.
