From July 23rd to August 4th (2018), I attended to the 7th SOLAS Summer School in Cargèse, Corsica, France.
I am really honored to have been selected to be part of this great summer school. PhD candidates (also PostDoc scientists, and Master students) from all over the world met in this beautiful and wild mediterranean island to discuss about marine and atmospheric sciences in of the most outstanding summer schools on this topics.
We had the chance of to not only discuss marine/atmospheric sciences, but also law, policy, politics, communication, social media tools, etc. From ships emissions to marine law and policy, or from CO2 fluxes (What the flux!) to clouds in the desserts; SOLAS Summer School has covered a huge amount of knowledge under an outstanding scientific atmosphere!
I am confident all the participants brought with us an amazing set of clever inputs, new skills, science «tricks», and experiences that will help us in our early career as scientists! Actually, we, the new generation of marine and atmospheric scientists, will have (unfortunately) a lot of work; since we are starting to feel the worrying effects of climate change. We are approaching to some of the Earth’s tipping points, and now, more than ever, we all need to provide knowledge and solutions to addres the main challenge of humankind along this century: climate change. Which, btw, it is hapenning, it is real and has not been made up by «NASA».
Here you have some pictures !

A better description of 7th SOLAS Summer School is provided by the official web page: «The SOLAS Summer School is a biennial, international event that brings together over 70 students and 15 world-leading international scientists, in a variety of fields, for a combination of lectures and practical workshops. It aims to teach the skills and knowledge of the many disciplines needed to understand the nature of ocean-atmosphere interactions and how to link ocean-atmosphere interactions with climate and people. It allows doctoral students and early-career researchers to see how their work fits into the broad canvas of SOLAS, and global change research more generally».
