The PhD School in Polar Sciences has been established in 1998 by the Department of Earth Sciences of the University of Siena. The duration of the course is three years.
The understanding of complex interaction processes between the various spheres (geosphere, cryosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere) of planet Earth is privileged in the polar regions as the perception of environmental changes is anticipated in time and their evidence is often amplified in intensity.
The goal of this PhD school is to educate young researchers who face the thematics of global environmental change on the basis of data and observations from the polar regions, through an interdisciplinary preparation and a systemic approach. The education includes interdisciplinary and specific courses and seminars. Research activites generally include the participation to at least one scientific expedition in the Arctic or Antartic region. The analysis and elaboration of material and data collected in those regions is performed in qualified national and international laboratories.
