The 19th International Swiss Climate Summer School focuses on the theme “Vegetation, Land Surfaces and Climate Interactions”.
The purpose of this summer school is to bring early stage researchers in touch with established scientists from different disciplines to address the question how vegetation and the land surface are affected and altered due to climate change, and how the resulting changes feed back to the atmosphere and hydrological processes in the climate system. The carbon cycle, which directly affects the global greenhouse gas budget, and the hydrological cycle, which is strongly influenced by plant transpiration, are the key relations between vegetation and climate that will be addressed from multiple perspectives during the summer school. The main questions to be addressed in the keynote lectures and discussed in smaller groups within the planned workshops are:
