Coral Mound Belgica Province


Call Open: SMART-AWI Atlantic Summer School

Successful applicants will join a five day expedition to the Belgica Mound Province on the Irish continental margin onboard the RV Celtic Voyager.  The Summer School will be lead by Professor Andy Wheeler of University College Cork and focus on cold water coral (CWC) ecosystems in a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) on the Irish continental margin. This is a valuable opportunity for postgraduate students of marine sciences to gain important seagoing experience on a modern research vessel with mentoring in multidisciplinary data acquisition by internationally established experts in the field.  Applications and further information are available at the Atlantic Summer School Webpage.

The closing date for applications for the Summer School is Friday 6th of June.
