New to planning oceanographic field work? Wondering how to request research vessel time? Or to use a submersible or ROV? Needing samples or wire-time to initiate a research project? If so, take part in a “UNOLS Chief Scientist Training Cruise”. These cruises will instruct early career marine scientists including PhD students on how to effectively plan for, acquire, utilize and report on time at sea for multi-disciplinary research and education. A training cruise will take place from July 6-15, 2011 from Newport OR and be repeated for a second science party September 16-25, 2011. The cruise plan will be dictated by the science requirements of the participants. Participant travel costs are provided along with small stipends for research supplies. However, space is limited.
