Seeking subjects to test the International Ocean Literacy Survey Version 4

POGO is one of the partner organisations supporting development of the International Ocean Literacy Survey (IOLS). 

The IOLS aims to be a common, shared measurement tool which can be used to determine the impact of particular interventions, to establish a baseline of Ocean Literacy in particular communities, to detect changes in Ocean Literacy levels in particular communities over time, and to compare differences in levels of Ocean Literacy across communities.

 

ICTP-CLIVAR Summer School on Oceanic Eastern Boundary Upwelling Systems

The ICTP-CLIVAR Summer School on Oceanic Eastern Boundary Upwelling Systems will be take place from 15-21 Jul 2019 at Trieste, Italy. 

 

This school will focus on coupled ocean-atmosphere dynamics in upwelling systems, their biogeochemical and ecological processes, and their sensitivity to climate variability and change. 

 

The summer school is accepting applications until 15 April 2019.
