ERCA is a high level international multidisciplinary course rooted in atmospheric and climate sciences, yet extending clearly out of this scope to the social aspects of the global change, hydrology and oceanography, and environmental chemistry. It is our conviction that the challenges facing atmospheric and environmental sciences will require building bridges accross those sciences. Practical activities (in Grenoble and at the astronomical observatory of Haute Provence) center on environmental observations, data analysis (python based) and a collective project.
For its 29th session, ERCA is partnering with the ITN GMOS-Train. This means that alongside our usal focus on atmospheric composition and CO2, we will use global mercury contamination as an example of the need for integrated monitoring, regulation ans scientific understanding.
