Marine GIS Applications for Integrated Coastal Zone Management

Category: 2019

This course will focus on integrated coastal zone management, in the sense that it needs to take on board the ecological, environmental, social and economic aspects of managing a coastal area or zone. The course provides an overview and hands approach on GIS applications necessary towards integrated coastal zone management including the data acquisition, processing, analysis and interpretation of spatial data. Participants will develop and build their own case study and make a short presentation at the end of the training course.

MBON Pole to Pole of the Americas: Tools for the analysis of coastal biodiversity using OBIS and remote sensing data

Category: 2019
The MBON Pole to Pole effort seeks to develop a framework for the collection, use and sharing of marine biodiversity data in a coordinated, standardized manner leveraging on existing infrastructure managed by the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS; IOC-UNESCO), the GEO Biodiversity Observation Network (GEO BON), and the Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS). The MBON Pole to Pole aims to become a key resource for decision-making and management of living resource across countries in the Americas for reporting requirements under the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), Aichi Targets of the Convention of Biological Diversity (CBD), and the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  This course a follow up of the M…

Scientific Communication

Category: 2019
Marine scientist are usually evaluated by their scientific communication productivity. It is fundamental for getting PhDs, grants, projects and jobs.  Scientific Communication is the output that normally leads to a formal publication of the results, findings, observations and views arising from a scientist’s research project. Most often, the official results are published in the form of printed materials, such as academic journals. Verbal communication channels, such as personal contacts with colleagues and teachers, seminars, workshops, lectures, and conferences, are also vital to the exchange of information among scientists. These types of communications work toward the advancement of the various scientific disciplines. In this Module we address those formal channels of communication…
