To further the education of young scientists in marine-related sciences and to train a new generation to participate in ocean drilling expeditions in the future, numerous summer schools are offered every year. Scholarships are available to allow outstanding young scientists to attend the ECORD summer schools.
2013 Summer Schools
The 10th summer school of the USSP consortium will focus on past climate dynamics with special emphasis on the analysis of the long-term carbon cycling and its implications in the understanding of present and future climates. USSP 2013 will integrate lectures, symposia, fieldtrips, and exercises on the many different areas of paleoclimatology including biogeochemical cycling, paleoceanography, continental systems, and all aspects of deep time climate modeling. These techniques and systems will be explored through interactive discussions of Cretaceous OAEs, P/E hyperthermals, the Greenhouse-Icehouse transition, Neogene and Quaternary climate dynamics. The goal of USSP is to provide participants with an advanced working knowledge on the paleobiological and geochemical proxy data and their use in reconstructing and modeling of past climates.

August 3-5, 2013 - Sendai, Japan
The Japan Drilling Earth Science Consortium (J-DESC) has opened some courses of the J-DESC Core School to the international community. The J-DESC Core School aims to give training opportunities on core description/analysis to early career scientists, technicians, graduates and undergraduates. The microfossil course will include lectures about Cretaceous to Recent planktonic foraminifera.

==Deep Sea Sediments: From Stratigraphy to Age Models
September 9-20, 2013 - Bremen, Germany
Ocean sediment cores provide a powerful archive that enables us to reconstruct past environmental conditions including climate that are needed to understand Earth System processes on a wide range of scales in space and time. In this context, the temporal dimension of individual records, including issues like bio- and cyclostratigraphy, correlation among cores and assignment of absolute ages to sedimentary horizons is a key prerequisite for the interpretation of palaeoclimatic records.
