APEC Climate Center (APCC) Climate Prediction Training Program 2013

APCC is hosting a training program in 2013 on “Producing High Resolution Climate Information: Scientific Basis and Application” and is now inviting applications until 30 April, 2013. The training program aims to enhance downscaling skills by building in-depth understanding of dynamical and statistical downscaling for various sectors and periods through the 1-week program.

Participants who successfully complete the training program will receive a certificate of completion. The program will be taught by a highly qualified and diverse team of scientists.
