Diversity of planetary circulation regimes,

in our Solar system and beyond

March 6-10, 2017, Les Houches (France)


We will present the recent observational data and modelling studies pertaining to the variety of planetary atmospheres circulation regimes, including giant and terrestrial planets. We will also discuss the theory of planetary physical processes (e.g. circulation, dynamics, thermodynamics, radiative transfer, cloud microphysics) and review the current status of the modelling of planetary atmospheres in order to calculate observables such as light curves. This interdisciplinary school wishes to contribute to bridging the gap between Earth science, planetary science, and astrophysics.

Topics that will be addressed are the following:

The number of participants, in addition to the invited speakers is limited to 50. The deadline to apply is January, 15th 2017. Please apply here.
