Fundamental Problems in Climate Dynamics
Monday, May 4, 2009 – Wednesday, May 13, 2009
Princeton Center for Theoretical Science (PCTS),
Atmospheric & Oceanic Sciences (AOS),
Co-operative Institute for Climate Sciences (CICS)
This program is geared towards graduate students and post docs and will focus on theoretical problems in atmospheric and oceanic dynamics of potential importance to the problem of global warming. A background in atmospheric/oceanic science is not required. Topics will include the large-scale structure of the atmosphere and oceans, large-scale turbulence, models of the Earth's cloud cover and water vapor distribution, moist convective turbulence in the tropics, theoretical approaches to the problem of the climatic response to small perturbations, as well as problems posed by paleoclimate observations and recent trends.

We can suggest the Clarion Palmer Inn; or The Hyatt Place. They are both on Route 1 and have a free shuttle but a private car is more convenient. If you wish to stay within walking distance to the campus we can recommend the Nassau Inn.
