About the Workshop

The purpose of the UNOLS Chief Scientist Training Cruises is to  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.

This Training Cruise takes place in the Fall of 2014 aboard the R/V Point Sur, leaving from the Moss Landing Marine Laboratories.  The at-sea cruise plan will be dictated by the science requirements of the participants and assisted by mentoring senior scientists and marine technicians.

Special thanks to the National Science Foundation, Office of Naval Research, and Moss Landing for making this program possible!
