Using the Copernicus Marine Data Stream for Ocean Applications

As part of the Copernicus Programme EUMETSAT, on behalf of the European Commission, is organising a blended training course on “Using the Copernicus Marine Data Stream for Ocean Applications”. The workshop will mainly focus on data from the Ocean and Land Colour Imager (OLCI) and the Sea and Land Surface Temperature Radiometer (SLSTR) both flown on the Sentinel 3 Satellite. Full details are given in the documents attached.


The online phase is scheduled 23 October – 27 October 2017

The classroom phase in Accra, Ghana, will take place 06 – 10 November 2017

9th International Workshop on Modeling the Ocean (IWMO), 3-6 July 2017, Seoul (Korea)

The 9th International Workshop on Modeling the Ocean will take place in Seoul, Korea, 3-6 July 2017.The workshop series has grown in both size and reputation exponentially, since its beginnings as a small group meeting of the Princeton Ocean Model.The event is open to the ocean modelling community at large. The IWMO focuses on all aspects of ocean and coupled air-wave-sea, ice and current-sediment modeling: processes, analysis and prediction.

Integrated Approaches to Investigate the Role of Soft and Hard Substrate Benthos in Ecosystem Functioning: From Field Observations and Experiments to Modelling and Indicator Development, Corsica (France)

Within this summer school, PhD students and early post-docs will be initiated in experimental methodology to investigate the effect of animal activity on biogeochemical cycling in both sediments and the water column.

GEOTRACES Summer School: Brest, France 20-26 August 2017

The first GEOTRACES Summer School will be held in Brest, France, between 20 and 26 August 2017. The school will bring together more than 60 students and 20 world-leading instructors. 
This summer school aims to teach the skills and knowledge necessary for a good understanding of the biogeochemical cycles of trace metals in the ocean. It will allow PhD students and early-career researchers to learn how their work fits within the international community of GEOTRACES.
