Observador de Hielo Marino y Témpanos
Online

Observador de Hielo Marino y Témpanos

Las observaciones de hielo marino y témpanos son una fuente de información sobre lugares remotos como las regiones polares y son de gran utilidad para la cartografía de hielo y la validación de estudios climáticos.

Este curso está diseñado para certificar la capacidad de los observadores en aguas polares desde el proceso de formación del hielo marino hasta la realización de observaciones desde buques o estaciones utilizando el Sistema de Información Glaciología (SIGLAC).  Además, se darán los conocimientos para la interpretación de cartas de hielo y otras herramientas para usos operativos.

Supporting Marine Earth Observation Educators
Online

Supporting Marine Earth Observation Educators

The purpose of this training workshop is to share knowledge, skills, resources and training techniques so that attendees are able to independently train others on available Earth Observation (EO) data and tools. During the course, participants will work with others to create their own (learning) artefacts. This is an interactive knowledge exchange workshop, not a technical training event.

Aims and objectives: 

  • To support marine and earth observation educators in their training activities, by sharing Copernicus Marine data resources and exchanging experience of different learning approaches.
  • To foster a community of marine EO educators who can collaborate in future.
  • To co-create learning artefacts that can used in participants own training activities and more broadly by the Earth observation community.
Full details including on how to apply available on the UNESCO/IOC calendar . The deadline to submit an application is 14 April 2022 (23:59 CET: Central European Time).

NF-POGO Centre of Excellence. Ocean Data Management module
Onsite

NF-POGO Centre of Excellence. Ocean Data Management module

This 2 week-long module on Ocean Data Management is part of the Nippon Foundation-POGO Centre of Excellence (NF-POGO CofE) and hosted by AWI (cohort 2022). This module is part of an intensive training course for young professionals at the post-graduate level, ten months in duration, with an intake of ten trainees per year. The course is sponsored by the Nippon Foundation and hosted by the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research.

This module provides a comprehensive introduction to a wide variety of earth science datasets, formats and analysis software. Students will learn and practice methods using a common ocean area, and they are expected to create a personal project of data products for a marine region of their own choosing. Personal projects are presented by the students at the end of the course.

Course/Module Dates: 28 March-8 April 2022

Vessel-based ocean monitoring with applications to R/V Dr Fridtjof Nansen surveys
Blended

Vessel-based ocean monitoring with applications to R/V Dr Fridtjof Nansen surveys

The course has two main objectives: (i) to develop skills among marine environmental scientists participating in the EAF-Nansen Programme to perform onboard duties during surveys concerning the quality control, post-processing and reporting of the physical oceanography data, (ii) to introduce tools that will enable scientists from partner countries to access and use the collected historical time series at their home institutions (e.g. for preparing publications, reports, etc.).

Ocean Data Management

Ocean Data Management (Self-Paced). This course will take place online between 28 March - 6 May 2022 (call for applications closed 26 February 2022).

Ocean Best Practices
Online

Ocean Best Practices

This course is an introduction to the Ocean Best Practices System. A best practice is a methodology that has repeatedly produced superior results relative to other methodologies with the same objective; to be fully elevated to a best practice, a promising method should be adopted and employed by multiple organizations.
This short course provides an overview of the importance and relevance of using and sharing Ocean Best Practices and Standards, as well as on how to create, submit, share and search for Best Practices in the Ocean Best Practices System (OBPS) repository. This course is intended for University students, researchers and ocean practitioners in general. It does not provide a certificate.

Earth Observation data and techniques for fisheries management
Online

Earth Observation data and techniques for fisheries management

Fishing vessel traffic data derived from Automatic Identification System (AIS) has become an essential component for building fisheries intelligence.  Enforce and related fisheries management strategies rely on such information to curb illegal fishing, plan and implement policies for the sustainability of marine living resources. 

Fisheries managers and enforcers require specialized skills to processes the large volume of positional, navigational and voyage related information embedded in AIS data.  Open-source programming software such as Python has lots of third-party modules for building packages and functions.  This makes Python an asset for the creation of customized data processing, analyses and visualization to support in making informed decisions in the management of natural resources.   

This training course will provide participants an understanding of the movement of fishing vessels and skills in processing AIS data.

Cambio Climatico: Carbono Azul y adaptación basada en ecosistemas marinos y costeros

Descripción general del componente virtual

El cambio climático es una de las mayores amenazas del planeta y muchos de los países de Latinoamérica ya sienten sus efectos. IPCC (2019) señala que ya se han observado impactos en los sistemas naturales y humanos como consecuencia del calentamiento global, muchos de los ecosistemas terrestres y oceánicos y los servicios que proveen ya han cambiado debido al calentamiento global.

Bajo este contexto, el curso busca la homologación de conceptos asociados al tema de cambio climático y facilitar la comprensión sobre las consecuencias previstas del cambio climático en zonas costeras y sobre los servicios ecosistémicos, que opciones de adaptación y mitigación hay disponibles para las zonas costeras y cuáles son los principales desafíos y oportunidades de acción contra el cambio climático.

Culturing and microscopy techniques for the analysis of phytoplankton diversity

Culturing and microscopy techniques for the analysis of phytoplankton diversity

Phytoplankton comprises a range of very different organism from tiny and almost featureless picoplankton taxa to large diatoms and dinoflagellates nearing 1 mm in diameter. They essentially form the base of the food web and therefore a detailed knowledge of this diverse group of organisms is vital for developing an understanding of marine communities and their interactions with their environment and with each other. Unfortunately, the diversity of methods available for the quantitative and qualitative analysis is almost as diverse as the phytoplankton itself. This course will take you through the most important methodologies for quantitative and qualitative (non-molecular) biodiversity assessments of phytoplankton.
