ESR training in understanding climate change in Antarctica
The new European ice drilling project 'Beyond EPICA', which started in 2019 aiming to extract the oldest Antarctic ice core, offers new and unique climate change-related scientific insight. The EU-funded DEEPICE project will carry out an innovative training programme for a new generation of 15 early-stage researchers (ESRs) in instrumentation, ice core analysis, statistic tools and glaciological and climatic modelling. The project will exploit expertise acquired in 'Beyond EPICA', offering the ESRs the possibility to implement their individual research projects, focussing on an analytical or modelling subject in a solid interdisciplinary and intersectoral environment. The ESRs will actively participate in science mediation in the field of climate change, taking into consideration the role of a combined data modelling methodology.
