What are the physical boundaries for life in the ocean? This one week course on physical-chemical-biological coupling in the pelagic will cover diffusion, turbulence, encounter rates, motion analysis in the pelagic. You will get hands on experience measuring and experimenting in the lab, in the field, and onboard. Lectures will be interspersed by hands on experience and experiments, in addition to theory you will learn how to measure turbulence and small scale hydrodynamics by means of Particle image velocimetry (PIV). The course will be held at the marine field station SLC Kristineberg on the Swedish West Coast. 5 ECT.
