Special: Young Scientist Summer School YSSS | Print |


Multi-Scales and Processes Integrated Modelling, Observations and Assessment for Environmental Applications


Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia

26th July - 6th August 2021




AoF ClimEco & RSF MegaCity projects



This YSSS will introduce young generation of researchers to special topics in atmospheric and environmental sciences, Earth system modelling approaches and applications. During the school, participants will learn about the current progress and challenges in Earth system research; meteorological, hydrological and atmospheric composition modelling and observations (including ground-based and remote-sensing); and modern technologies for environmental studies and assessments (including health impacts). The programme will consist of theoretical lectures and practical exercises (to be accomplished by students as small-scale research projects ending with presentation of the project results).

YSSS will take place within the International Conference on the Status and Future of the World's Large Rivers.


YSSS Programme


Block 1

Current progress and challenges in earth system research (atmosphere-hydrosphere-biosphere)


Block 2

Modelling (earth system, numerical weather prediction, atmospheric chemical transport, seamless online integrated, amospheric boundary layer) and specific challenges


Block 3

Chemistry (gas, liquid) and aerosols (properties, dynamics, chemistry, micro-physics, interactions)


Block 4

Emissions, data ssimilation, models evaluation


Block 5

Ground-based and remote sensing observations; EU and Russian strategies for hydro-meteorological, ecosystems and atmospheric composition monitoring; SMEAR stations; measurements for atmospheric composition, ecosystems, meteorological, hydrological, urban scale


Block 6

GIS technologies in environmental sciences; environmental (land, water, terrestrial ecosystems) and human health assessments


Practical Exercises
as Small-Scale Research Projects (SSRP)

on selected research topics to be accomplished by groups of students led by teachers
