Ocean Observation

Courses tagged with "Ocean Observation"

This course provides an overview of regional/international marine observation, application and quality control of CTDs (Conductivity, Temperature, and Depth) and their measurements. It will provide an opportunity for participants to exchange the research progress on regional marine observation, and to learn the quality control procedures of CTDs to improve the in-situ oceanographic measurements.

This course will provide knowledge and hands-on experience for the data, satellites and instrumentation, access and formats, tools and software for operational activities. A pre-course phase of the training will provide an essential overview of data, products and tools used to monitor the ocean and will focus on preparation for the classroom phase where students will work on a short project to learn more about the data and its applications.

O curso fornece uma introdução ao fenómeno das marés (elevação e correntes) e a sua importância para a ecologia e desenvolvimento costeiros, operações de pesca, gestão portuária, desportos náuticos e outros serviços marítimos e geração de energia natural a partir do mar. O curso incluirá uma introdução teórica sobre as forças geradoras de marés e seus constituintes, equipamentos usados ​​para a medição de marés, aquisição de dados, processamento, análise e interpretação para diferentes aplicações.

Os participantes ganharão conhecimentos sobre análise e previsão de marés usando o programa t-tide, e serão incentivados a usar dados de mares das suas instituições e/ou países de origem e processá-los para as suas necessidades específicas. Os participantes desenvolverão projetos individuais ou em grupo para apresentação no final do curso.

Plymouth Marine Laboratory, UK

The course will deliver training in ocean-colour data and their applications in climate studies. Remote sensing experts from the Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) will guide students through a combination of lectures and computer-based exercises covering the following topics:

  1. Introduction to ocean colour;
  2. Modelling primary production;
  3. Ocean colour applications for ecosystem state assessment;
  4. Climate impacts and feedbacks;
  5. Ocean colour in data assimilation;
  6. Dataset archive, management, visualisation and analysis.

Students will also have opportunity of informal discussion with instructors outside of the formal lectures. A visit of the NERC Earth Observation Data Acquisition and Analysis Service (NEODAAS) that is hosted at PML will be provided.

Sustained ocean observations are essential for understanding links between physical and chemical drivers and ecosystem responses and for investigations into how long-term changes in the underlying drivers might impact on ecosystem dynamics and the services these provide. However, the management of time series is complex and many issues from scientific to financial and scoietal, need to be taken into account for time series to be sustainable in the long-term. Therefore, while many time series courses have a focus on statistical techniques needed to analyse time series,  in this course we take a holistic approach. We will introduce you to different types of time series and will show you different tools for the visualisation and exploration of your time series data (both very important for detecting time series and for deciding on the correct statistical analyses). However, we will also discuss time series in the context of the ecosystem services context and policy drivers that can have an influence on how time series are run.

Indian National Center for Ocean Information Service (INCOIS) under Earth System Science Organization (ESSO) is a dedicated institution for operational oceanography and the only institution in the Indian region that has been providing operational ocean information and advisory services over the past 10 years. It has established leadership particularly in ocean observations, ocean modeling and ocean information and advisory services in the Indian Ocean region.

ESSO-INCOIS and UNESCO's Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC-UNESCO) signed a Memorandum of Agreement on 4 July 2013 during the 27th session of the IOC Assembly in Paris, for cooperation in conducting training courses at the International Training Centre for Operational Oceanography (ITCOocean) set up by ESSO-INCOIS in Hyderabad, India. The Centre aims at promoting the development and optimization of scientific base, technology and information system for operational oceanography at national, regional and global levels. The Centre has conducted four training courses during 2013-14 in various themes in operational oceanography (For more details kindly visit www.incois.gov.in)
