Instituto Argentino de Oceanografía, Bahía Blanca, Argentina
10-14 October 2022
Professors: Dr Alejandro J. Vitale – Dr Gerardo M. E. Perillo
Deadline: 1st September 2022
We open registration for a short (two-weeks), intensive course on the development of an integrated network employing self-constructed, low-cost sensors and platforms. The course is open to candidates from countries within the All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance (EU 27, South Africa, Marocco, Cabo Verde, Brasil, Argentina, USA, Canada)
This course is part of the All-Atlantic Marine Research Infrastructure Network (AA-MARINET) Joint Pilot Action, which will provide tools to support a transatlantic network of Research Infrastructures initiatives, promoting Trans-National Access and other methods for sharing infrastructures in the Atlantic area. Have a look at the AA-MARINET official website!
Our goal is:
The course is focus on providing to the participants the capacity to build their own basic sensors and platforms as well as to be able to analyse the information (time series) gathered with the sensors.
Since the course is mostly practical, it is limited to a maximum of 5 (five) participants.
Participants must travel to Bah?a Blanca, Argentina, and they will be housed at rooms provided by the Universidad Nacional del Sur.
Support for travel and/or local expenses will be provided by AANCHOR
All materials for the course will be provided by the organizers.
The course will be taught in English.
Submissions must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
At the end of the course, we expect that participants will be able to:
- Build their own sensors and platforms
- Repair and replace those sensors in short time
- How to define the best site and conditions for locating a sensored platform
- Make the actual installation of the sensored platform
- Define a maintenance program for the platform and sensors
- Make a QA/QC of the data
- Analyse time series data
