The CIVIS school in “Paleoglaciology” is organised through the CIVIS partnership and hosted by Stockholm University. It will take place in the field, where students will be trained on glacial landforms and landscapes, and how these forms are used for ice-sheet reconstructions.
Main topics addressed
- Formation processes
- Field mapping, air photo-/remote sensing interpretation and mapping of glacial landforms
- Geographical analysis of glacial landforms and landform-based paleoglaciological reconstructions
After attending this CIVIS school, students will be able to:
- Explain the formation of glacial landforms and how they can be used for paleoglaciological reconstructions
- Identify glacial landforms in remote sensing applications and in the field
- Explain the foundations of paleoglaciology
- Classify landform systems and perform a geographical analysis of landforms
