CIVIS announces the opening of the registration for the short CIVIS course “Ocean Sciences: Lagrangian methods in marine sciences”. The programme runs for 8 hours in an online format in 2, 10 and 16 November 2021. Each online course will last about 2.30 hours, in the afternoon.
Applicants should be MA and PhD students at one of the CIVIS member universities in the fields of Natural Sciences and Mathematics with a working knowledge of English of at least B2 level.
The programme represents an opportunity to discover the Lagrangian methods in physical oceanography with examples of applications for the study of fine scales circulation, coastal eddies and marine species connectivity.
Applicants should send their CV and a cover letter (maximum 500 words) by the 30 September 2021 to firstname.lastname@example.org, with email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org in cc. Selected students will be notified on 5 October 2021.
The short course “Ocean Sciences: Lagrangian methods in marine sciences” aims to provide an introduction to the Lagrangian methods to identify, track and sample dynamical structures of physical-biogeochemical interest and to investigate the multi-scale variability of ocean connectivity that controls the recruitment of exploited fish species.
In the context of this course, participants will be provided with a short overview of recent advances obtained during oceanographic cruises organized by the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanography in Marseille and several case studies combining models and observations.
This course is part of the European University of Ocean Sciences, a coordinated set of activities and programmes within CIVIS which explore vital questions for Europe’s marine and maritime environments.
The assessment will be based on an oral discussion about the case studies presented during the course.
Instructors within the course are professors and researchers from Aix-Marseille Université and the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanography.
