Applications are now closed. Selected applicants will be notified via e-mail.
A one-week School on the Dynamics and Chemistry of the Upper Atmosphere will be held in Argentina under the sponsorship of the U.S. National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Pan-American Advanced Studies Institutes (PASI) program and with the support of the Argentine Consejo Nacional the Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas (CONICET). The event is organized by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and NorthWest Research Associates (NWRA) in collaboration with the National University of La Plata (UNLP) and will be hosted by the Instituto de Ciencias Astronómicas, de la Tierra y del Espacio ( ICATE ) in San Juan, Argentina.
The School will provide students from the Americas with the theoretical and practical background to pursue research careers in atmospheric and space science. The School will be complemented by a parallel Workshop where current research results by both School lecturers and students will be presented. Roundtable discussions will help identify education and research opportunities for students throughout the Americas. Special attention will be paid to the U.S. Aeronomy and Space Science community initiative for deploying new instrumentation in the South American region.
We expect to have approximately 30 students, half of whom will be from the U.S. and the rest from institutions throughout the rest of the Americas.
