Sensor Summer School Curriculum and Video Available


The Ocean Observatories Initiative Facility Board (OOIFB) hosted a 2023 summer school (July 17-21, 2023) at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon that focused on OOI optical attenuation and absorption data. A mix of advanced graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and early career scientists participated in this hands-on learning experience about how to access, analyze, and interpret data from the Sea-Bird AC-S. Data from the AC-S is used to characterize the absorption and scattering of light in seawater, which provides information on phytoplankton biomass in the measured ocean region.

So others may benefit from what was learned, the curriculum is available online here.
