A network of interdisciplinary scholars studying past climate change

ICHM Workshop and Travel Grants

Climate in meteorology, meteorology in climate studies 
November 20-21, 2014, Bergen, Norway
The International Commission on History of Meteorology (ICHM) announces four competitive travel bursaries available to graduate students and recent Ph.D.s to support their participation in a workshop hosted by the history of meteorology project at the University of Bergen. The university will provide accommodation at the workshop for the successful applicants. The bursaries are intended to support the costs of airfare, prorated by distance and cost.
The purpose of the workshop is to discuss the relationship between weather and climate, the historical role of climate in meteorology, and how this relationship has changed over time. Throughout history, climate has drifted in and out of weather studies. What we call climate has been defined differently both in the scientific literature and in the political sphere. Climate has caught the attention of physicians, physicists, geophysicists, politicians and the public. When, how and why did it ever catch the interest of the meteorologist? How important was climate to meteorologists, and how important was meteorology in scientific studies of climate?
Applicants should send their name, contact information, affiliation, year or expected year of Ph.D., dissertation topic or title, and a 200-word abstract of a proposed paper to Georgina Endfield, President of ICHM, by 4pm August 1st, 2014.  All submissions will be considered by an ICHM panel.
