The NCCR Climate, Switzerlands Centre of Excellence in Climate and Climate Impact Research, invites young scientists to join leading climate researchers in a scenic southern Swiss Alpine setting on the occasion of the 11th International NCCR Climate Summer School 2012.

The Summer School is focusing on the theme the water cycle in a changing climate. This theme has been chosen due to its paramount importance in terms of both scientific challenges and pressing societal concerns. The specific topics to be addressed include:

- Observed variations of the water cycle

- Physical processes governing the hydrological response to climate change

- Scenarios of the water cycle in a changing climate

- Anticipated impacts

The Summer School invites young researchers from all fields of climate research. The courses cover a broad spectrum of climate and climateimpact research issues and foster cross-disciplinary links. Each topic includes keynote plenary lectures and workshops with in-depth discussion in smaller groups. All summer school participants present a poster of their research and there will be ample opportunity for discussion.
