AlgaeTraits: a trait database for (European) seaweeds

MAT_2022

AlgaeTraits: a trait database for (European) seaweeds

Belgium
Training Center

The amazing diversity of seaweeds is reflected in the ecological and morphological characteristics of the various species. Seaweed traits and functional forms have therefore long been used as a tool to answer various ecological and evolutionary questions. AlgaeTraits (https://algaetraits.org/) provides standardized trait information for all European seaweeds, enabling the use of trait-based approaches over broad taxonomic, spatial and temporal scales. AlgaeTraits is a thematic subregister of the World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS) (https://marinespecies.org/) which links to AlgaeBase (https://www.algaebase.org/), the most complete database on global algal taxonomic information.

Through the online AlgaeTraits portal, editors have access to the Aphia platform (the database behind WoRMS) to add new traits and related non-taxonomic information, and to make changes to already existing records. With this course, the AlgaeTraits editors will become more at ease with the online AlgaeTraits editing interface and will learn how to use the available functionalities and tools to standardize their actions and improve the AlgaeTraits and WoRMS databases.

Earth Observation data and techniques for fisheries management

FishMan_2022

Earth Observation data and techniques for fisheries management

Ghana
Training Center

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.

Ocean Acidification

OA2022

Ocean Acidification

Belgium
Training Center

This is an introduction to ocean acidification. The course structure may in future be adapted to prepare participants for hands on training courses in ocean acidification measurements. The course is structured into several chapters, each with modules covering specific topics.

Ocean Best Practices

OBPS2022

Ocean Best Practices

Belgium
Training Center

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.

Ocean Colour Remote Sensing - Data, Processing and Analysis

OCRS India 2022

Ocean Colour Remote Sensing - Data, Processing and Analysis

India
Training Center

Ocean colour analysis is a proven tool for determining the health of ocean using oceanic biological activity through optical means. Phytoplankton pigment, chlorophyll, are indicators of equilibrium of CO2 concentration between atmosphere and ocean. The oceanic colour changes due to chlorophyll a provides the level of primary productivity whereas the colour change due to CDOM can be attributed to the level of pollution and higher particulate matter. The ability of optical sensors to map the spatial and temporal patterns of ocean colour over regional and global scales has provided important insights into the fundamental bio-optical properties and bio-physical processes occurring in the aquatic media. Chlorophyll, SST and PAR can be operationally scaled up to estimate primary production and estimate the fish stocks. This training focuses on the basics of marine optics, ocean colour remote sensing, and its applications such as mapping primary productivity, phytoplankton classes and algal blooms.

SMEE_2022

Supporting Marine Earth Observation Educators

Belgium
Training Center

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).
