EUROFLEETS+ Floating University
“Modern techniques and platforms for ocean observations”
Onboard the R/V Skagerak and R/V Svea
Lysekil 24-28 October 2022
The EurofleetsPlus “Floating University”
This international Eurofleets course will expose participants to several state-of-the-art ocean observing platforms available in West Sweden. Training aspects include understanding of ship- and robotic-based observing techniques and their associated sensors and measurement capabilities. The course will provide ship time on two new high-seas research vessels (RV Skagerak and RV Svea), in addition to deployment of autonomous platforms such as gliders and larger AUVs. Participants will go to sea during the training week for instrument and platform deployments, robotic-platform piloting, to gain understanding of how different platforms collect data and through data processing and visualization, investigate which platforms are best to use for various scientific questions.
