2023 GIA Training School


A training school focused on exploring glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) modelling will be held from 3-7 July 2023 at Lantmäteriet, Gävle, Sweden. The program will include lectures and practical exercises aimed at investigating the interactions between solid Earth deformation, ice mass change, and associated sea-level and geoid variations. Students will complete homework exercises utilizing freely available modelling software and will have the opportunity to spend one-to-one time with leading researchers in the GIA community while working through examples in class. A field trip to examine records of land uplift and sea level change will be included.

Who is eligible to enroll?

This course is targeted at individuals who are working on (or will soon start working on) GIA modelling, or topics directly related to GIA modelling. While the course is aimed at graduate students and early career scientists, all interested parties are encouraged to apply regardless of age or experience level. A basic introduction to the fundamentals and applications of GIA modelling will be provided, and no previous modelling experience is required.

How do I apply?
