The Global Ocean Science Education Workshops are sponsored and facilitated by the international Consortium for Ocean Science Exploration and Engagement (COSEE), the UNESCO Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, and the College of Exploration. A key outcome of the 2016 workshop has been the establishment of five international working groups focused on:
The ECORD Summer School on “Current-Controlled Sea Floor Archives: Coral Mounds and Contourites” 2017 will take place from 21 August to 1 September 2017 at the MARUM – Center for Marine Environmental Sciences, Bremen University, Germany.
The 14th summer school of the USSP consortium will focus on past climate dynamics with special emphasis on the analysis of the long-term carbon cycling and its implications in the understanding of present and future climates. USSP 2017 will integrate lectures, symposia, fieldtrips, and exercises on the many different areas of paleoclimatology including biogeochemical cycling, paleoceanography, continental systems, and all aspects of deep-time climate modeling.
The OCB Summer School will take place this year at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute in Massachusetts. Taking place over the course of four days, the event will consist of five talks on varying topics. The content of the talks are the following:
The course will introduce programming logic using the R syntax. The participants will be able to solve problems involving heterogeneous biological datasets and the combined use of different statistical packages, so the advantages of learning programming skills can be demonstrated. The RMarkdown syntax will be used to illustrate the advantages of literate programming and the possibilities of code sharing and archiving. In the sequence, participants will learn how to design relational databases (RDB) which can be used to manage and analyse large biological datasets.
NUI Galway will this year host a workshop titled 'Workshop on Sustainability in Marine Biodiscovery'. This workshop is funded by an SFI catalyst award and is intended to bring marine biodiscovery researchers together to look at how research in this area can be sustained.
The layout of the workshop will be based around three core themes. These are: a wider appreciation of marine biodiscovery and applications to other fields; Wider use of materials and results from marine biodiscovery programmes, and sustainable careers in marine biodiscovery.
The upcoming Frontiers in ocean-atmosphere exchange: Air sea interface and fluxes of mass and energy workshop will take place in Cargèse, Corsica, France, from 15-18 May 2017. Organised by Surface Ocean Lower Atmosphere Studies (SOLAS), the workshop program will be made up of presentations by invited speakers in the morning and the afternoons will be dedicated to discussions and poster presentations by all participants.
The extraordinary beauty and cultural wealth of EU’s coastal areas have made them the preferred destination for many holidaymakers from Europe and abroad, making coastal and maritime tourism an important tourism sector, even though the actual offer is not considered sufficiently ‘future proof’.
The 9th International Workshop on Modeling the Ocean will take place in Seoul, Korea, 3-6 July 2017.The workshop series has grown in both size and reputation exponentially, since its beginnings as a small group meeting of the Princeton Ocean Model.The event is open to the ocean modelling community at large. The IWMO focuses on all aspects of ocean and coupled air-wave-sea, ice and current-sediment modeling: processes, analysis and prediction.
Applications are now being accepted for the 4th African Discovery Camp for Research-based Training in Science for the Sustainable Use and Management of Marine Ecosystems and their Resources.
Course participants will learn about microbial and geochemical oceanography, in particular about ways in which microbes participate in geochemical cycles in upwelling ecosystems and how chemical, physical and atmospheric processes in turn influence microbial physiology.
