Call for applications: 2019 course on a suite of biogeochemical sensors

Application deadline: 1 February 2019

Building on the success of the 2015 training course, IOCCP and EU BONUS INTEGRAL Project (Integrated carboN and TracE Gas monitoRing for the bALtic sea) are now organizing a 10-day international training course on “Instrumenting our ocean for better observation:a training course on a suite of biogeochemical sensors.” The course will be held on June 10-19, 2019 at the Sven Lovén Center for Marine Sciences, in Kristineberg, Sweden. This course responds to the growing demand of the global ocean observing system and the marine biogeochemistry community for expanding the correct usage and generation of information from a suite of autonomous biogeochemical sensors.

The goal of the course is to train the new generation of marine biogeochemists in the use of a suite of biogeochemical sensors and to assure the best possible quality of the data produced. The workshop will be limited to a total of 28 participants at a PhD / early postdoc level selected through a competitive process at the discretion of the organizers.

This intensive training course will provide trainees with lectures and hands-on field and laboratory experience with sensors (deployment, interfacing, troubleshooting and calibration), will provide in-depth knowledge on data reduction and quality control as well as data management. This course will also provide an overview on the use of remote sensing, modelling and intelligent data extrapolation techniques.
