About this Event

HIDA Virtual Challenge on Climate Change

Join us for a cimate change data science challenge on April 2-3, 2020 from your home office.

About the challenge:

Solar wind and volcanic activity were impactful external influences on our climate in the first millenium AD – and they still play an important role in understanding climate change today. In this remote challenge, you help Sebastian Wagner from the Helmholtz Zentrum Geesthacht to learn more about how these solar and volcanic activities are reflected in climate models.

Here’s how we’ll do it:

You’ll be able to work on this challenge with the tools available to you in your home office. All you need is a laptop and internet.

- Register to the HIDA remote challenge

Winners will receive a book prize kindly sponsored by Helmholtz Zentrum Geesthacht.
