One year after the disaster, the University of Concepcion (UDEC) has made good progress towards the recovery of its research infrastructure. They have received contributions from various sources and are very grateful to all those who contributed. However, the losses were substantial and further contributions and help would be appreciated. At the POGO-12 Meeting in Seoul (January 2011), a number of suggestions were put forward on how POGO could help the University of Concepcion in their efforts to recover some of the research infrastructure that was damaged or lost during the tsunami in 2010.
The UNOLS Chief Scientist Training Cruises will instruct early career marine scientists, including PhD students, on how to effectively plan for, acquire, utilize and report on time at sea for multi-disciplinary research and education. A training cruise will take place from July 6-15, 2011 from Newport OR and be repeated for a second science party September 16-25, 2011. The cruise plan will be dictated by the science requirements of the participants. Participant travel costs are provided along with small stipends for research supplies.
