COURSE: Analysing occurrence data in the Southern Ocean

Grant RW Humphries, March 15, 2019

HI all,

A great course for Southern Ocean enthusiasts and scientists is coming up in September of this year.

Tools for Southern Ocean Spatial Analysis and Modelling

This course will run from September 2 - 6, 2019 in Brussels, Belgium!

The course costs 75 Euros. The fee include full participation in the course, and digital copies of the course material, as well as coffee breaks and a small lunch. Participants will need to arrange their own travel and accommodation, but limited travel support will be available in collaboration with the SCAR Ant-Eco research program.

This course will teach participants how to retrieve, model and interpret species occurrence data from the Southern Ocean using R-tools developed through the Antarctic R community. In hands-on sessions, participants will learn how to find, download and clean data using R packages and how to display these data on Antarctic (polar projection) maps. The course will introduce various ways of analyzing the data including Species Distribution Modelling (SDM).
