Research methods in ocean acidification (course)

Summer Graduate Course at Friday Harbor Laboratories (College of the Environment, University of Washington), July 16 – August 17, 2018

Instructors: Drs. Jon Havenhand (Dept. of Marine Sciences, University of Gothenburg, Sweden), Andrew Dickson (Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego), Terrie Klinger (School of Marine & Environmental Affairs, University of Washington)

This graduate level course introduces students to the theory, methods, and techniques needed to conduct successful experiments on the biological effects of ocean acidification. Through a combination of lectures, laboratory exercises, and field work we will prepare students to perform ocean acidification research at their home institutions and in other settings.

Students will learn standard protocols for measuring carbonate chemistry variables in the laboratory, gain an understanding of the underlying chemical theory, and learn how these influence the design and performance of biological experiments. The course will cover key developing issues in ocean acidification research and the broader field of global ocean change.

Applications are currently being accepted. Review begins Jan 1, 2018.

Students are encouraged to apply as early as possible. Late applications will be accepted if space is available. Enrollment is limited to 15 students.
