SenseOCEAN scientists present at International Ocean Carbon Coordination Project (IOCCP) Summer School

SenseOCEAN scientists Dr Doug Connelly and Prof. Eric Achterberg attended an International Sensors Summer School organized by the IOCCP (International Ocean Carbon Coordination Project) where they ran a half day session on ‘Emerging technologies: benchtop and deployable’.

Kristineberg, Fiskebäckskil 02The 10 day course was held in Kristineberg, Sweden in June 2015 at the Sven Lovén Centre for Marine Sciences (see picture) and was attended by ~30 expert users from academia and research organisations in Europe, India, America & Canada and Australia. As well as presentations and sessions given by experts in their field from both academia and industry, users also had the opportunity to work with the sensors. Skype presentations were also given by Chrysi S. Laspidou from the SMS Oceans of Tomorrow project and Eric Delory from NeXOS.

In addition to sharing SenseOCEAN advancements, discussions regarding future collaborations also took place: CSIRO (Australia's national science agency) are interested in using SenseOCEAN nutrient sensors on future offshore deployments on the reef off the coast of Queensland.
