UNESCO/IOC Regional Training and Research Center on Ocean Dynamics and Climate (UNESCO/IOC-ODC)


  • 2014: Training Course on Climate Models,  UNESCO/IOC-ODC Center, Qingdao, China, 3-14 November 2014

         This training course is designed to help develop the capacity of member states in the Western Pacific (suitable candidates from outside the region will also be welcome), who are involved in the research and analysis of climate using numeric models. The training will cover topics related to climate models, including the components of ocean, atmosphere, land, ice and carbon, and the assessment of climate models. The training course will be conducted in English.

       Trainees will be selected mainly from WESTPAC member states with priority given to those young scientists and junior technical staff who have experience in modeling the climate system and/or have Doctoral degrees in related major. The applicants should have a good command of English.

Deadline for Application

       The filled-in application form shall be sent to Dr Xunqiang Yin and with a copy to Mr Wenxi Zhu at the following addresses no later than 15 September 2014. All applicants will be informed of the final selection result no later than 25 September 2014.
