General information

What  are  the  physical  boundaries  for  life  in the  ocean? This  one week  course  on  physical-chemical-biological  coupling  in  the  pelagic  will  cover  diffusion, turbulence,  encounter  rates,  motion analysis  in  the  pelagic.  You will  get  hands  on  experience measuring and experimenting  in  the  lab,  in  the  field, and onboard. Lectures  will  be  interspersed  by  hands  on experience  and  experiments,  in  addition  to  theory  you will  learn how  to  measure  turbulence  and  small  scale hydrodynamics  by means of Particle  image  velocimetry  (PIV). The  course  will  be  held  at  the  marine  field  station  SLC Kristineberg on the Swedish West Coast.
