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.

Digital Repositories: the Pathway from Open Access to Digital Asset Management

Category: 2018

This course will travel the pathway from digital repositories in the OA movement, stopping to discuss important repository parameters. Expansion as multimedia repositories and descriptions of their uses in digital asset management will bring participants to the crossroad discussion on using repositories as research information recording systems and how this transformation in digital repository uses has changed the role of libraries.


Duration: 5 days

Foundations of Marine Spatial Planning

Category: 2018
Increased activity in the coastal and marine environment has led to two important types of conflicts in the region: (1) conflicts among human uses (user-user conflicts); and (2) conflicts between human uses and the coastal and marine environment (user-environment conflicts). These conflicts weaken the ability of the ocean to provide the necessary ecosystem services upon which humans and all other life depend on. This course provides an introductory, but comprehensive, overview of CMSP. It focuses on describing a logical sequence of all the steps required to achieve desired goals and objectives for coastal and marine areas. This course does not focus on the technical details of any one of the steps and it is not intended to be a course that will help to develop a marine GIS or implement a …

Integrated Data Analysis for Upwelling Studies

Category: 2017
Upwelling is an oceanographic feature that is very important to the ocean ecosystem. It brings high nutrient water to the surface and the impact is noteworthy to the ocean productivity. This nutrient-rich water will encourage a phytoplankton bloom that is ultimate base for large animal population in the food chains, including fish, mammals and sea birds. Although this coastal upwelling regions covers relatively small areas of the ocean surface, they contribute roughly 50 percent of the world’s fisheries landings.
