Ocean Ecology (616) Research Areas

Calibration/Validation Course Partnership

Since July 2011, Jeremy Werdell (616) and Ivona Cetinić (616/MSU) have co-instructed the biannual NASA-sponsored summer course conducted at the University of Maine’s Ira C. Darling Marine Center titled “Calibration and Validation for Ocean Color Remote Sensing.” This 4-week course consists of a combination of graduate-level lectures, field research with state-of-the-art instrumentation, group projects, and intensive analyses and presentation of data. It provides hands-on experience for ~20 students based on collaboration with core University of Maine staff, additional core faculty from Bowdoin College, Sequoia Scientific, and the University of Miami, and guest speakers. Alumni of the course have since become Ocean Ecology Laboratory staff members. Additional details, as well as recorded lectures, can be found here.
