The course directors are Dra. Cèlia Marrasé and Dr. Josep Lluís Pelegrí.

The Colloquium is organized in three parts:

A- Central Topic.“Physical-Biological ocean interactions: from the micro to the large scale”. The approach to this topic will be through:

–     Masterly lessons of 1.5 hours during mornings (30 hours structured in 20 sessions)

–     Practical activities in the afternoon, includes computer training (16 hours structured in eight sessions).

B- Hot Topics (30’talk+30’interactive discussion). A total of eight talks on hot topics will be organized in the afternoons; a full description of these topics will be provided in the web several weeks before the Colloquia.

C- Supervised work. Prior to their arrival, each participant will select a specific topic of research to be carried out in small groups (4 people). A number of research suggestions will be provided but the participants are also free to propose a given topic. Each participant will be assigned a senior lecturer and a junior assisting scientist for close supervision of the progress in the research topic. Here, you can download the summary of the Supervised Work. You must choose three of them, and send an email with your three preferences in order (first, second and third).

D- Posters discussion. Participants are encouraged to bring along a 5’ presentation together with a poster describing their oceanographic research. One full afternoon will be dedicated to discuss the students’ research. (Provisional)

E- Other activities. There will also be other activities, such as cultural activities within the city and a guided excursion to Natural Park of Medes Islands, in Costa Brava.
