Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of the first JERICO Summer School to be held between 8th to 13th July in the beautiful island of Malta. Organised by the Physical Oceanography Unit of the IOI-Malta Operational Centre at the University of Malta in collaboration with CEFAS (UK), this event is free of charge and open to young researchers and PhD students with a background in oceanography wishing to expand their knowledge and share experiences. The selected participants are expected to cover their travel, accommodation and subsistence costs, but a number of sponsorships are offered to the right applicants.
Focusing on operational oceanography in coastal domains, attendants to this school will have the opportunity to learn about coastal observatories, data management, numerical modeling techniques and applications. The programme includes hands on sessions. A visit to the HF radar site will be organised.
More information on the school can be obtained from www.capemalta.net/jerico/maltaschool.
This summer school is another important effort by the Physical Oceanography institute in Malta to raise the bar in excellence within research areas in data and information products and services related to the marine environment of European coastal and regional seas. It will also serve as precursor to a Masters Course in Applied Oceanography that the institute is launching next October at the University of Malta.
