Workshop title: ERIS – The Winter Stratospheric Polar Vortex
Trainer(s): Alain Sarkissian, Université de Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (UVSQ)
Time allocated: 45min
Workshop goal: To understand the high altitude (10-30 km altitude called the stratosphere) atmospheric dynamics (wind) in polar regions in winter and its impacts on mid-latitude (40°N-60°N) issues
Target audience: All teachers
Registration: On-line, on the conference site. The selection will be made according to the options and the order of entries.
Topics approached in the workshop:
Workshop Description: The workshop will start with a 5 min presentation of the 5 UVSQ ERIS packages, followed by a 10 min presentation on the importance to understand atmospheric dynamics when studying the atmosphere. Then, we will use a tool called MIMOSA, used by scientists to interpret observations and to modelise the polar higher atmosphere (10-30 km altitude). Some parameters will be deduced from the images/ maps provided by MIMOSA by the teachers themselves, to initiate them to scientific activities using scientific approaches. At the end of the session, 5-10 min will be dedicated to a kahoot (online learning platform using quiz/games).
Participants are recommended to also have phones with internet access.
Required resources: computers or phone with internet access for Kahoot.
