PICES Summer School on "Ocean observing systems and ecosystem monitoring"

Dates: August 19-23, 2013

Location: Newport, OR, USA

Application Deadline: March 15, 2013

This 2013 PICES summer school offers up to 40 students an opportunity for an introduction to hi-tech ocean observing. The week-long school will feature a mix of classroom lectures, laboratory demonstrations of inter-disciplinary ocean sensors, an introduction to ocean observing platforms (moorings, coastal stations, sea-floor landers, autonomous underwater vehicles), and field work on a research vessel to deploy ocean observing equipment at sea.
The school will cover a range of sensors and sampling equipment used to measure physical, biological and chemical properties of the ocean. The utility of time-series datasets generated by moored monitoring stations to estimate net ecosystem metabolism for estuarine and coastal habitats will also be demonstrated.
