Jerico-NEXT will this year host a summer school on the use of integrated physical and biological monitoring with novel sensor methods for water management issues such as the Marine Strategy Framework Directive. The H2020 project focuses on developing the European network of coastal observatories, including novel sensor methods such as HF radar and imaging flow cytometry.
Students will get an introduction and overview on the current state of the art of European coastal observatories and on-going new developments in this field. The new developments include sensor development for a range of ocean variables, the data management and dissemination of large amounts of sensor data, the integration between different types of data and variables and the final use to answer policy questions in coastal waters.
The course is geared for early career scientists plus scientifically oriented early career marine spatial planners (MSP). There will be a maximum of 30 participants. The summer school programme has no course fees. However, students are expected to arrange for their own funding for accommodation (150 Euro per student for the week), travel and meals.
