DescriptionThe third IOCCG Summer Lecture Series is dedicated to high-level training in the fundamentals of ocean optics, bio-optics and ocean colour remote sensing. The course content and list of teaching staff is available at: http://www.ioccg.org/training/SLS_2016.html.? We are seeking applicants with a strong background in ocean optics and ocean colour remote sensing, involved in post-doctoral and/or early career research, as well as students currently undertaking their PhD studies.
