Issue 36: International GOOD-OARS-CLAP-COPAS Summer School

The SOLAS Event Report Issue 36 reports on the Global Ocean Oxygen Decade (GOOD)-Ocean Acidification Research for Sustainability (OARS)- Research Program for Climate Action Planning (CLAP)-Centro de Investigación Oceanográfica en el Pacifico Sur-Oriental (COPAS) International Summer School , which took place from 6-12 November 2023, in Coquimbo, Chile.

The Chile summer school provided a great opportunity for 33 young researchers from 17 countries to meet more than 15 world experts in their respective fields. The days were filled with presentations on different aspects of ocean acidification and deoxygenation as well as practical sessions on modelling, laboratory experiments, shipboard measurements and analysis, communication training (mostly scientific) and an introduction to ethics in science. The programme closed with a stakeholder day, where students and teachers visited offshore sea scallops aquaculture platforms in Tongoy Bay and interacted with the local scallop aquaculture cooperative stakeholders.
