The ERCA organizing committee decided in June to organize the ERCA 2021 School face to face. As the pandemic situation strongly deteriorated in France and particularly in Grenoble during the last month, it appears that this is not reasonable anymore.
After a long series of consultations with our partners in charge of the ITN network with whom we were engaged this year, and from the local committee, it was decided, in agreement with the organizing ERCA committee, to cancel the ERCA2021 training.
We also decided to not hastily organize an online ERCA session to replace the face to face version, as we feel it would not meet our expectations, especially concerning the practical training, taking place each year at the OHP site.
We invite you to re-apply for the ERCA2022 School. Your application will be considered first.
We will inform you and give you all the details regarding the ERCA2022 school in due time.
Director of ERCA School
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.
