The 3rd Student Workshop on Ecology and Optics of Coastal Zones will be a 4-day education and training event with a focus on optical oceanography and remote sensing of coastal waters. It follows a workshop at the Museum of the World Ocean in 2016, and a first workshop at the White Sea, Republic of Karelia, in 2014.
The Workshop is intended for master and PhD students dealing with natural sciences and addresses the principles, methods and results of optical methods for measuring environmental parameters. It offers students the opportunity to meet international researchers and to gain first-hand experience in hydrography and coastal ecology, in environmental optics and remote sensing.
The relevance of oceans and coasts for the daily weather and for the regional climate will be outlined, and projections of the future climate based on the impact of global change on the oceans and coasts will be discussed. Students will have the opportunity to demonstrate their projects in oral or poster presentations.
