The 3rd GEOTRACES Summer School will be held in July 2022!

We are excited to announce that the 3rd International GEOTRACES Summer School: Introducing Polar Parameters, which had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will take place from 10th to 17th July 2022. The Summer School will be held at the Helmholtz-Centre Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research in Bremerhaven, Germany, hosted by Walter Geibert and Claudia Hanfland.

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. It will include a full day of shipboard sampling of marine trace elements onboard RV Heincke. Online training materials (video tutorials and lectures, webinars) will also be produced during the course.

The event is supported by VolkswagenStiftung. Financial support for travel and accommodations is available for the selected participants.

More information will be available in early 2022.
