We would like to let you know that applications are now open for the 2018 Galápagos Ocean Acidification Summer School which we have informed you about in our latest issue of the IOCCP Conveyor. The course will be held at the Charles Darwin Research Station, Puerto Ayora, Galápagos, Ecuador on 19-28 August 2018. The course is co-organized by IOCCP SSG member and 2018 SCOR Visiting Scholar Cristian Vargas. The aim of the course is to use natural CO2 gradients around Roca Redonda volcanic CO2 vent site to conduct in situ observations using a wide range of techniques for long-term capacity building (chemistry, biology, geology, etc) and data collection. This will be an advanced training course with a combination of theoretical training and field expedition.
The deadline for applications is 4 June 2018. To apply, please fill out the attached application form and send it to the course organizers together with a letter of intention and a CV. For more information on the course objectives, target participants, lecturers and organizers, please see the attached course flyer.
