[unav_all] Solid Earth / Climate interactions at CIDER 2015

The meeting below will focus on interactions of the solid Earth with climate,
with two major themes:

Mantle Interactions with the Hydrosphere/Cryosphere; and
Mantle Interactions with the Carbosphere (Continents, Ocean, Atmosphere).

Discussions will consider the ways in which the climate and solid Earth interact
through changes in ice loading and sea level, and through weathering, out- and in-gassing
of carbon at subduction zones, and other related topics. There is clearly an important
role for geodesy here!

Please consider attending. Support is available for student, postdoc and senior participants
who are accepted to the program (within program guidelines). The official announcement is 
below, with the link for registration.

The 2015 CIDER summer program will be held at 
UC Berkeley from June 28th to July 31st, on the theme:

"Solid Earth Dynamics and Climate --- 
Mantle Interactions with the Hydrosphere & Carbosphere"

The program includes a 4 week tutorial program for about 35 advanced graduate students and post-docs (July 5-31, 2015), while more senior scientists are  welcome at any point in the program.

CIDER 2015 will bring together geophysicists, geochemists, geodynamicists and paleoclimate scientists to explore emerging dynamic interactions between the solid earth and climate systems, such as sea level, icesheet dynamics, the volume of the ocean, magma production, the volcanic flux of CO2 to the atmosphere, and the loss of carbon via subduction into the mantle. 

A Deep Carbon Observatory Thematic Institute on Carbon from the Mantle the the Surface will be held in conjunction with the CIDER program on July 1-3, 2015. Support for students is also available for this workshop.
