FaCE-IT Summer School @ Calvi, Corsica
From 30/9 to 4/10, we organised the second Summer school at the STARESO Research Station in Calvi, Corsica. This summer school is part of our BELSPO-project called FaCE-IT (2016-2020), with our partners from RBINS, NIOZ (NL), ILVO Ostend and Université de Liège.
Within this training course, students get acquainted with biogeochemical cycles, from observations to modelling. After a day of introductory lectures, the second day was spent in the field to collect sediment cores and hard substrate animals. Afterwards, we taught the students a number of experimental techniques to quantify ecosystem functioning and submerged them in marine numerical and diagenetic modelling.
