Reminder: Two weeks left to apply for “Modern Observational Oceanography” – summer course at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS)

Course title and dates: Modern Observational Oceanography, July 4 – July 22, 2016
Instructors: Prof. Nick Bates (BIOS & University of Southampton), Dr. Rod Johnson (BIOS), Dr. Andrew Peters (BIOS) and Ruth Curry (WHOI & BIOS)

Modern Observational Oceanography integrates lectures, laboratory training, and fieldwork to introduce students to current research questions and the observational methods used to investigate them. Themes will include carbon and nutrient cycling, carbonate chemistry and ocean acidification, ocean-atmosphere interactions, and the spatial/temporal scales of physical ocean processes. Students will collect samples and utilize various sensors and instrumentation locally at the BIOS dock, on a 2-day research cruise aboard the R/V Atlantic Explorer, and through a small fleet of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs).

A BIOS summer course is a great opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the ocean sciences. All students are eligible to apply for scholarships and may obtain academic credit for these courses, pending exchange of information between BIOS and the student’s home institution. The BIOS summer course application deadline is April 17th, 2016.
