The course will provide lectures on cutting edge research, focusing on current critical issues in ocean colour science, as well as interactive discussion sessions between students and lecturers. Students will also learn how to collect high-quality in situ data, and how to interpret the measurements through several practical lab sessions.
The course is intended primarily for PhD students and post-doctoral fellows involved in any aspect of ocean-colour research, but bright graduate students with a Masters degree (or studying for their Masters degree), with a strong understanding of ocean colour remote sensing, are also encouraged to apply. Research scientists with a longer record in ocean colour research (< 10 years) hoping to broaden their knowledge will also be considered. All students are required to attend the full 2-week lecture series.
