Travel information

As a first order alternative you should organize your own travel. However, we do have some possibilities to support participants with travel and lodging. We have some funding from IASC, primarily for early career scientists, that we want to use wisely and also some funding from the International Meteorological Institute for international scientists with a PhD.

So we need to hear from you what the need is. Hence, contact Michael Tjernström ASAP if you have no possibility to fund your own travel to this workshop, or that of your coworkers: michaelt@misu.su.se
