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 2015 aboard the R/V Hugh R Sharp, leaving from the University of Delaware College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment out of Lewes, Delaware. 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 UD CEOE for making this program possible!
