Course

Ocean Optics Course 2017

Applications for the Calibration & Validation for Ocean Color Remote Sensing class, part of the 2017 Ocean Optics Course, are now being accepted. The course will run from 10 July - 4 August, and will take place in University of Maine's Darling Marine Center in Walpole, Maine. The course aims to prepare future oceanographers trained in the use of optics to study the ocean, and is sponsored by NASA and the University of Maine.

Geometric Morphometrics Using R (GMMR01)

The field of geometric morphometrics (GM) is concerned with the quantification and analysis of patterns of shape variation, and its covariation with other variables. Over the past several decades these approaches have become a mainstay in the field of ecology, evolutionary biology, and anthropology, and a panoply of analytical tools for addressing specific biological hypotheses concerning shape have been developed.

WE-Heraeus Summer School on Physics of the Ocean

Environmental Physics is a rapidly growing research area, focusing on processes within our environment, i.e., in the atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, geosphere, and biosphere. Physical ocean processes directly affect the global distribution and transports of ocean properties ranging from mass and temperature to the many dissolved substances (for example salt, nutrients, oxygen, CO2). Ocean processes are of particular relevance for the global and regional climate systems, and they set the stage for marine element cycling and the marine ecosystem as a whole.

Phycology Course in Roscoff, France - 17-30 July 2017

The Roscoff Biological Station (France) organizes each summer a hands-on introduction to marine algae and plants with an emphasis on seaweeds. Seaweeds are collected during field trips so that an understanding of the organisms in their natural environment is acquired. Laboratory methods emphasize the use of essential literature, on-line tools and microscopic examination in order to understand the morphological and reproductive details relevant to this purpose. Students will become familiar with species identification, their morphology, biology and ecology.

PLOCAN Glider School 2017

PLOCAN is an initiative committed with both its adjoining socioeconomic environment and the international excellence in science and technology. Hence, it promotes this call which is oriented towards university students in the marine-maritime and technological scopes, as well as technicians/ professionals of the sector. The objective is to train them in theoretical and practical abilities and skills concerning underwater vehicles, as gliders.

Training course on zooplankton identification. Nauvo

The Archipelago Research Institute's field station Seili, Finland, will this year host a training course on zooplankton identification. The course builds upon the more than 50 years of experience the Archipelago Research Institute (ARI) has in conducting multidisciplinary research of the Baltic Sea, with a special focus on the Archipelago Sea. The Institute provides long-term monitoring data e.g. on hydrography, zooplankton and Baltic herring (Clupea harengus membras), and strong scientific expertise on long-term environmental monitoring and modeling decadal datasets.
