Summer Schools

Prodigy program students will each have the opportunity to attend up to two annual summer field schools. Each one-week field school will provide an opportunity for participants to build upon the principles learned within the Ocean Data Course. Focus will be split between development and deployment of modern oceanographic sensor packages, and working with the resulting data.

Inaugural Prodigy Summer Field School Participants: Quadra Island, BC, Canada – May 2022

Learning Objectives:

  • Place observations into spatial and temporal context using previous literature, satellite observations, model results etc.
