About Ocean Summer School Portal
The International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE) of UNESCO's Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) has set up this Ocean Summer Schools site as a service to the global ocean science community. The idea for the site emerged from a 2010 meeting that brought together the major ocean science organizations (see http://www.scor-int.org/CB_Summit.htm), where it became apparent that there was no existing portal to summer schools related to ocean science. This Website is co-sponsored by IODE/IOC, the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR), the Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean (POGO), and the North Pacific Marine Sciences Organization (PICES).
For projects and organizations that frequently sponsor summer schools and want to be able to list their summer schools directly, please contact Aditya Kakodkar (kakodkar[dot]aditya[at]gmail[dot]com) to set up a user account for you. For those projects that only occasionally conduct summer schools, please send your information to Ed Urban (Ed[dot]Urban[at]scor-int[dot]org) to post the information for you.
Summer schools are defined to include short courses in any season of the year, training cruises, and longer courses, but the events should be designed specifically for graduate students and/or early-career scientists.
