IOCCP and BONUS INTEGRAL are thrilled to open online applications (http://www.ioccp.org/2019-training-course) for an international training course "Instrumenting our ocean for better observation: a training course on a suite of biogeochemical sensors". The course will be held at the Sven Lovén Center for Marine Sciences in Kristineberg, Sweden, on June 10-19, 2019. The goal of the course is to further develop proficiency in the use of a suite of biogeochemical sensors and to improve the quality of the data currently generated by autonomous biogeochemical sensors. This intensive, 10-day training course will provide trainees with lectures, hands-on in-situ and laboratory experiences, and informal interactions to improve in-depth knowledge on instrument know-how, troubleshooting, data management, data reduction and quality control.
The course is open for 28 participants, PhD students and early-career researchers with large prospects for utilising the course experience to advance their ongoing or planned research projects and their scientific career in general. Detailed application instructions are available from the course page on the IOCCP website.
Application deadline: 1 February 2019.
