From November 6-10, 2017, the University of Concepción is going to host the fifth Congress of Physical Oceanography, Meteorology and Climate in the eastern South Pacific.
The Millennium Institute of Oceanography (IMO) offered this course again with the firm intention of promoting and complementing the education of future scientists in this generation, particularly, of students in the areas of marine biology and geophysics, who took a 3-day theoretical and practical course on shipboard risk prevention.
The headquarters of the Krill Lab are located in the Department of Zoology at the University of Concepción (UdeC). This lab, led by junior IMO researcher Dr. Ramiro Riquelme, under whose guidance there is a team of marine biologists, including Erika Jorquera, who is Dr. Riquelme’s special assistant.
This event seeks to increase public awareness and to make known the wonderful world of the oceans through a series of talks by three IMO doctoral students and the deputy director of Outreach.
