International Winter school on: ‘Using models to advance our understanding of the Indian Ocean biogeochemical variability’


A winterschool will be held at CSIR-National Institute of Oceanography (CSIR-NIO, Goa, India) during
16–21 February 2015. This winterschool is designed for advanced Ph.D. students and early career
scientists who want to improve their knowledge on biogeochemistry of the Indian Ocean region and of
its physical forcing by climate variability. This course will in particular help to develop a background in
biogeochemical and physical ocean modelling. Run by international climate and biogeochemistry
experts, the course will include:
(1) Background classes on ocean and climate variability, with a focus on the Indian Ocean.
(2) Review classes on our current understanding of chlorophyll, carbon, and oxygen variability in the
Indian Ocean and its relationship to climate variability, based on analysis of both observation and
(3) The workshop will offer for selected students/scientists an extra 2-days hands-on session to learn
how to install, run and evaluate biogeochemical models.
