|Title||ICBM Summer School 2017 - Introduction to Data Analysis and Ecosystem Modeling|
| Listing Institution||Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM), Carl-von-Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, Germany|
|Last Date to apply||2017-03-31|
|Course Duration||From: 2017-07-30 To: 2017-08-12|
|Description||The Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM), University of Oldenburg (Germany), will organize a summer school dealing with diverse modeling approaches to marine processes and systems.
The central idea of the summer school is to follow the analysis chain ranging from data sampling over data analysis and conceptual process descriptions and numerical schemes up to the level of comprehensive ecosystem models. The aim is to acquaint participants with diverse up-to-date modeling techniques at an introductory level.
Since data acquisition will be an integral part of the summer school a focus will be on marine conditions met in the southern North Sea and Wadden Sea (one of the largest tidal systems world-wide and UNESCO World Heritage since 2009).
Main scientific topics are:
Introduction to the coastal area of the southern North Sea and Wadden Sea
Data acquisition and processing
Introduction to R and Matlab
Multivariate data analysis
Time series analysis
Networks: structure and dynamics
Dynamics of populations and ecological communities
Biodiversity and ecosystem modeling

|Minimum Educational Requirement(students)||The summer school aims at young scientists, i.e. advanced (master) students and early stage PhD students, with a background in marine or environmental natural sciences of all disciplines.|
|Application Documents Requirment||The application is informal and has to include
a CV (1 page) and
a motivation letter (1 page) describing the scientific background of the applicant and his/her personal motivation for and expectation from attending the summer school. A firm background of very basic math and good English knowledge must be appropriately addressed in the application.
Applications should be sent until March 31, 2017 by e-mail to
|Sponsors' Availability||The fee is 150 Euro and includes accommodation in multi-bedrooms at ICBM, local transport during the summer school, insurances, and course materials (sponsored by ICBM).
