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 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.

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.
