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.

Supporting Marine Earth Observation Educators

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).

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

Colombia
Training Center

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

MicTechPhyto_2021

Culturing and microscopy techniques for the analysis of phytoplankton diversity

Belgium
Training Center

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.
