About the Workshop

The purpose of the UNOLS Chief Scientist Training Workshop 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.

The 2013 Chief Scientist Training Workshop takes place from October 19 – 28th, 2013 in Narragansett, RI  and aboard the R/V Endeavor. The full program will begin and end at the University of Rhode Island Marine Operation Facilities in Narragansett, RI, and will include a 7-day cruise on the R/V Endeavor to at sea locations in the Middle Atlantic Bight. The at-sea cruise plan will be dictated by the science requirements of the participants and assisted by two mentoring senior scientists and two marine technicians.

Special thanks to the National Science Foundation for making this program possible!
