Like every year, we were welcomed at the hotel Zur Goldenen Rose, run by Paul Grüner (just like almost everything else in Karthaus).



Traditionally, several musical events are organised during the summer school. Unfortunately there were no tango lessons this year, but there was a lot of piano music and two songs. Find more at the music page.

The group of students and teachers of 2016.

The 16th edition of Karthaus summer school about Ice Sheets and Glaciers in the Climate System took place from 13 to 24th September 2016 in Certosa, Senales, Italy. During nearly two weeks 34 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.
