OMG 2018 is a specialized training program for Rockland turbulence measurement systems that are integrated with ocean gliders.
OMG 2018 will be hosted by the Mid-Atlantic Glider Initiative & Collaboration (MAGIC) at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences. Training will be optimized for both scientists and technicians and facilitated by instrument specialists from Rockland Scientific.
Fees to attend OMG 2018 are $1,650 USD and do not include transportation & accommodation. Please contact jeremy_at_rocklandscientific.com to register. Dormitory room & board at BIOS is also available.

With support from the ONR-Global program, the Environmental Fluid Mechanics Lab at UKZN, in collaboration with Rockland Scientific, is organizing a training workshop on Ocean Turbulence in January 2018. Rockland’s Dr Rolf Leuck, a leading international expert on the measurement of ocean microstructure, will lead the workshop. The course deals with both theoretical and practical aspects of understanding and measuring ocean microstructure associated with turbulent mixing. The attached flyer contains more detailed information and a link to a web site with an on-line registration process.
UKNZ particularly encourages graduate students to attend but all interested researchers are welcome to participate.

Dr. Fabian Wolk and Dr. Rolf Lueck will be at the International Association for the Physical Sciences of the Ocean (IAPSO) Conference in Cape Town, South Africa from August 27 to September 1, 2017.
Dr. Justine McMillan and Jeremy Hancyk will be at the European Wave and Tidal Energy Conference (EWTEC) in Cork, Ireland from August 27 to September 1, 2017.
Justine will be presenting her paper “An Assessment of the TKE Balance at a Tidal Energy Site Using ADCP and Shear Probe Measurements” at the conference.
Ocean Microstructure Glider training, “OMG 2017”, is a 4-day training workshop that covers all aspects of turbulence measurements using MicroRider integration with ocean glider platforms. The training workshop will cover setup, operation, maintenance, deployment and processing of turbulence data. The workshop is scheduled for April 24-27, 2017 in Victoria, B.C. Canada. Please see the OMG 2017 Preliminary Schedule for details. The event promises to bring together a diverse group of scientists from around the world. Seats are limited, to register please fill out the OMG 2017 Registration Form.
Only 2 weeks until VicTOR 2016!
Please find all the information in our VicTOR 2016 Information Package.
VicTOR 2016 builds on success of previous turbulence training workshops held around the world
The Victoria Turbulence Observation Retreat, “VicTOR 2016”, is a 5-day VMP training workshop that covers all aspects turbulence measurements using VMP profilers, from basic measurement theory, to the setup, operation, maintenance, deployment and processing of VMP turbulence data. The workshop is scheduled for October 17-21, 2016 in Victoria. Please see the VicTOR 2016 Syllabus for details. Seven spots remain at time of this publishing.
