SCOR-POGO International Training Workshop on Nutrient Analysis for Participants from Developing Countries, 5-9 November 2017

Hosted at NIOZ Texel, Netherlands

To better manage and understand the global impacts of human activities on the world’s oceans, it is necessary to have accurate observations of changes in dissolved nutrients in both the upper water column, as well as in the deep ocean.  This workshop at NIOZ is targeted at scientists and technicians from developing countries to give the opportunity of learning techniques and protocols, and sharing thoughts and ideas with other nutrient chemists.

 

Ocean-colour data in climate studies advanced training short course

The course will deliver training in ocean-colour data and their applications in climate studies. Remote sensing experts from the Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) will guide students through a combination of lectures and computer-based exercises covering the following topics: 1) Introduction to ocean colour; 2) Modelling primary production; 3) Ocean colour applications for ecosystem state assessment; 4) Climate impacts and feedbacks; 5) Ocean colour in data assimilation; 6) Dataset archive, management, visualisation and analysis.

ESA Ocean Remote Sensing and Synergy Summer School - 11-15 September 2017 (Porto, Portugal)

As part of the EO Science For Society – scientific exploitation programme element, the European Space Agency (ESA) is organising an advanced Ocean Remote Sensing Training Course devoted to train the next generation of Earth Observation (EO) scientists to exploit data from ESA and operational EO Missions (e.g. Copernicus Sentinels) for science and application development

 

The training course is being organised by ESA in cooperation with the University of Porto and will be held at the University from 11 to 15 September 2017.

 

UGent Blue Growth Summer School, 11-22 Sep 2017, Gent (Belgium)

The second edition of the Blue Growth Summer School is taking place at GreenBridge, UGent Campus Ostend in Belgium from 11-22 September 2017.


The Summer School will cover a wide range of topics throughout its run, from exploring the challenging role of oceans and seas in our future society, to assessing how people from multiple backgrounds and disciplines can work together to achieve goals that would not be possible without collaboration.

 

Hjort Summer School 2017 – Bridging Methods in Marine Science: From the Lab to Models, 11-16 Aug 2017, Bergen (Norway)

Accompanied by lectures, students will conduct lab experiments and link them to modelling experiences using examples highly relevant to the changing marine environment of today like mixotrophy, zooplankton fecal pellet production and carbon export. Students are also asked to prepare a poster-presentation of their own research. Upon completion, they receive a course diploma with a recommended 3 ECTS.

Application deadline: 1 June 2017
