An intensive three-week, cross-disciplinary, graduate-level course on "Calibration and validation for ocean color remote sensing" will be offered at the University of Maine's Darling Marine Center from 11 to 29 July 2011. This class is a continuation of the Optical Oceanography course first offered at the Friday Harbor Laboratories in 1985 and more recently at the Darling Marine Center. Past graduates are many of today's leaders in oceanography.
The Australian Government has announced the successful tender to design and build the marine nation’s next ocean-going research vessel, the RV Investigator.
The graduate Course: "Experimental Approaches to Understanding Ocean Acidification" will take place from June 20 - July 22 at the Friday Harbor Laboratories, University of Washington. Ocean acidification research is emerging as a critical field in marine biology. This course will help new researchers design appropriate experiments to document and manipulate ocean carbonate chemistry.
