2 - Practical onboard training course for the PhD students on using new technologies for multidisciplinary oceanographic research - Tallinn, Estonia, August 17th-22nd, 2014
The practical ship-based training course on board R/V Salme (http://www.eurofleets.eu/np4/86.html) is designed to enable PhD Students to acquire advanced practical skills for using new technologies for multidisciplinary oceanographic research (including gliders, autonomous profilers, ferryboxes, and towed instruments).

Training will specifically focus on:

- Design, planning and execution of scientific surveys.
- Deployment and operation of autonomous and towed instruments.
- Data acquisition, quality control, analysis and integration.

These 6 days will include two days of multidisciplinary ship-based training, shore-based training of RV logistic and survey planning, data processing, analysis and integration. Students will be accommodated in an academic hostel free of charge. Travel expenses to and from Tallinn will have to be paid by the students (travel information can be found at: http://www.tourism.tallinn.ee/eng).
