Capacity building and training

Training course on ocean currents data quality control and analysis methods

The Ocean Teacher Global Academy is hosting a training course which provides students with both background reading assignments that cover the main course topics, and hands-on exercises, that explore the essential elements of ocean currents data quality control and analysis methods. The course assists participants in developing specific technical skills and methods for using ocean currents data.

Course objectives

FaCE-It Summer School 2019

Within this training course, PhD students and early post-docs will be initiated in experimental methodology to investigate the effect of animal activity on biogeochemical cycling in both sediments and the water column.

Class-room lectures will provide participants with an overview on the recent developments in the research field and will be combined with hands on experiments on both hard- and soft substrate biogeochemical cycling (optode and electrode techniques, nutrient cycling, bio-irrigation) using state-of-the art experimental equipment.

Second GEOTRACES International Summer School

The second GEOTRACES summer school will be held between the 23rd and 28th September 2019 in Cadiz, Spain, on board of the school ship Intermares A-41. 

GEOTRACES summer schools aim at teaching the skills and knowledge necessary for a good understanding of the biogeochemical cycles of trace metals. General lectures will be given by 10 world-leading international scientists and practical sessions including field sampling workshops will be ran throughout the week.

5th International PhD-student course in Documentation Techniques for Scientific Divers 2019

This course will be conducted as a 13 day intensive course at the marine field station Kristineberg in Fiskebäckskil, Sweden. A total of 16 PhD students in underwater science disciplines may take part. Master students, postdoc or early career scientists may also be accepted. A maximum of 12 scientific divers can participate in the course but a maximum of 4 participants that use the same techniques while snorkeling  may also be permitted if they do not have the required dive experience.

University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice International Summer School 2019

The Faculty of Fisheries and Protection of Waters of the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice (FFPW USB) is holding its International Summer School 2019 in the Czech Republic from 24th June till 19th July 2019.

The Summer School lasts four weeks and includes many excursions and lectures, but mostly work on small research projects under the guidance of experienced researchers in very well-equipped faculty laboratories. The FFPW USB provides an accommodation and full board to all participants for free.
