Winter school on "Multi scale approaches and multiphysics couplings in fluid and solid mechanics »

20th to 24th January 2020 // Grenoble

The aim of this winter school is to make an overview of the different approaches, numerical and experimental techniques allowing to tackle this complexity.
ll the courses will be illustrated through various up-to-date examples. Two entire days will be dedicated to practical excercises on « high tech demonstrators » based on the most recent techniques and methods developed by partner laboratories of Tec 21.
The last day will be dedicated to the particular question of waves in fluids and (...)

6th Snow Science Winter School 2020

16-22 February 2020, Col du Lautaret, France

The 6th Snow Science Winter School will teach these modern techniques of snow measurements. The school consists of a field training complemented by theoretical lessons. It includes the practice with some of the state-of-the-art snow measurement techniques (specific surface area by reflection and spectroscopy, near-infrared photography, high-resolution penetrometry, micro-tomography, etc). Students will learn about how to characterize snow cover, what are the fundamental processes (...)

Avalanche dynamics and precursors of catastrophic events

february 3 to 8, 2019

In nature as well as in many technical applications, one encounters the sometimes problematic phenomenon of intermittent dynamics, associated to avalanches, that are complex geometrical objects on scales that can span many orders of magnitude. This workshop aims at bringing together experts from various different fields to develop further the understanding of the nonlinear spatio-temporal response of avalanche systems and to find ways to define precursors that could help to prevent (...)

Observatories of the critical zone in Africa: current issues and findings - 30th anniversary of AMMA-CATCH observatory

November 12 to 14, 2018

The AMMA-CATCH observatory invites you to an international conference on the occasion of its 30th anniversary. The expected participants are researchers, teacher-researchers, doctoral students and decision-makers.
Global changes are taking place on our planet. They concern the critical zone of the earth system, and occur at different scales. Their impacts on the energy and water cycles are already detectable, but how will these changes persist in the future and at which rate?
Three (...)

Seminar "Testing General Relativity with Infrared Interferometry in the Center of the Milky Way"

September 20, 2018

Speaker: Reinhard Genzel (MPE Garching & UC Berkeley)
The Center of our Galaxy is a unique laboratory for exploring the astrophysics around a massive black hole and testing General Relativity and other theoretical concepts in this extreme environment. I will discuss the results of a major campaign of observing the Galactic Center in 2017/2108 with three instruments at the European Southern Observatory’s VLT, including the novel GRAVITY interferometric beam combiner of the 4 UTs. During (...)
