Summer Schools

The 5th IAGA School and IASPEI School are planned for August 16-20, 2021, just before the IAGA-IASPEI Joint Assembly, with the aim of providing excellent early career scientists with a good basic understanding of a wide range of the scientific topics covered by IAGA and IASPEI respectively (see also http://www.iaga-aiga.org/earlycareer/)

The Schools normally would also have taken place in Hyderabad, but due to the situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, they will be fully virtual. As participants also should get to know each other, in virtual rooms, the number of participants will still be limited to approximately 30 for each School

Name of Lecturer: David Kerridge
Affiliation: British Geological Survey, Edinburgh; UK
Description of my topic:
Geomagnetic fields: Observations, data and indices; Geomagnetic fields: Modelling.

Guided computer-based exercises including:
Signals in magnetic observatory data from seconds to decades
Examples of spherical harmonic analysis in action including using the IGRF to trace
field lines and find conjugate points
Building a 'mini-IGRF' from a Swarm data set
Estimating the core radius using geomagnetic field models

Name of Lecturer:Stephan Thiel
Affiliation: Geological Survey of South Australia
Description of my topic:
Introduction to electrical and EM methods
Electrical conductivity of Earth materials
Source fields for electromagnetic induction
Theoretical background of electromagnetic methods with focus on magnetotellurics
Analysing MT data: dimensionality, strike, anisotropy
Modelling of MT data: from 1D to 4D
Case studies: Tectonics and mineral exploration
Case studies: Geothermal exploration and hydraulic fracture monitoring

Name of Lecturer: Yoshizumi Miyoshi
Affiliation: Institute for Space-Earth Environmental Research, Nagoya University
Description of my topic:
Title :"Coupling process between solar wind and inner magnetosphere"
The subject for the lecture is a coupling process between solar wind and inner magnetosphere.
We focus on how energetic particle distributions in the inner magnetosphere depends on
the solar wind parameters and solar wind structures like CMEs and CIRs. Several characteristics
phenomena which are useful for the space weather forecast will be presented.

Name of Lecturer: Gurfan Beig
Affiliation: Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology Ministry of Earth Sciences, Govt. of India; Pashan, Pune-411008, India
Description of my topic:
Prof. Gufran Beig has identified important anthropogenic climate change signal in the upper atmosphere and made reliable estimate of role of atmospheric chemistry on regional climate change…. http://safar.tropmet.res.in/beig/

Name of Lecturer: Julie Carlut
Affiliation: Institut de physique du globe de Paris
Description of my topic:
Paleomagnetism: Past instabilities of the geomagnetic field
The paleomagnetic record and its uncertainties
Inversions and short events, who's who?
From the Matuyama-Brunhes boundary to the Laschamps event: paleointensities and 10Be

Name of Lecturer: Alexandre Fournier
Affiliation : Université de Paris, Institut de physique du globe de Paris, France
Description of my topic:
Title: A quick introduction to data assimilation
This lecture will cover in an informal fashion the principles of data assimilation, and the bases of its sequential and variational implementation.

It will be complemented by hands-on practicals written in the python language.
