The 15th edition of Karthaus summer school about Ice Sheets and Glaciers in the Climate System took place from 8 to 19th September 2015 in Certosa, Senales, Italy. During nearly two weeks 36 students (mainly PhD) had lectures in various topics within glaciology, ranging from numerical modelling of ice sheets and glaciers (even on Mars) to remote sensing and ice core analyses. In addition to lectures and excersises, computer projects were conducted in groups of three students as part of the Karthaus daily programme.
