Training workshop on analytical oceanography and data management by SEACRIFOG

Training workshop on analytical oceanography and data management by SEACRIFOG The SEACRIFOG partners UNIRES and UIB are planning a training workshop. The training will focus on analytical oceanography and data management and it will take place at the Geophysical Institute in Bergen, Norway 1-10 April 2019. The Norwegian institutions share a long history of cooperation with Sudanese and Somalian researchers. Students and technicians from both countries will participate in the training provided by teachers from Sudan and Norway.

During the first days, the attendees will receive a hands-on experience collecting oceanographic data using a small research vessel. As a second step, they will learn how to analyse and control the quality of the data. During the last days of the intensive workshop, the group will focus on data management, leveraging the previously collected and analysed data.

Please note that we can no longer accept applications for the workshop, as the maximum number of participants has been reached.

We will film and edit parts of the workshop into a webinar, to give more interested people the opportunity for learning.
