Pre-announcement of 3rd GEOTRACES Summer School

The 3rd GEOTRACES Summer School will take place at the Helmholtz-Centre Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research in Bremerhaven, Germany, from 11th to 16th July 2021.

Participants will be trained in sampling marine trace elements onboard RV Heincke, sample processing, data validation, visualisation and a perspective on modelling with such data. Building on the two successful previous summer schools in Brest and Cadiz, the 3rd GEOTRACES Summer School will offer training possibilities for ~50 students, with a combination of hands-on training, lectures and 1:1 science discussions with renowned experts in the field. With the global travel restrictions given, online training materials (video tutorials and lectures, webinars) will also be produced during the course.

More information will be available in early 2021.
