GNSS4SWEC stands for Advanced Global Navigation Satellite Systems tropospheric products for monitoring severe weather events and climate. This is a COST project, which started in May 2013 with the main objective to connect the community of scientists in Europe, who concentrate their research on the synergy of Meteorology, Geodesy, GNSS and related to those fields topics. The research area of this project project is spatial and temporal variability of water vapour in the atmosphere and its impact on severe atmospheric events, the climate system in general, as well as on the accuracy of the GNSS positioning products.

e goal of this Summer School was to give knowledge and tools to the PhD students in this sphere of Earth studies to make advanced research of the atmosphere. The school was a continuation of the topics, which were discussed during the First GNSS4SWEC Summer School in 2014.

The School was exclusively organised for PhD students and early Post-Docs from the member institutions of the GNSS4SWEC project. Abstracts from students outside the project community will be considered only in case of not enough participants from the community.
