INSTRUCTOR

Bruno Claro

 

LOCATION AND DURATION

Faro. Campus de Gambelas, Universidade do Algarve. Portugal

Duration: 3 days

 

FACILITIES

CCMAR, Faro. Campus de Gambelas, Universidade do Algarve. Portugal

 

DESCRIPTION

The programme will be in a classroom. Each day will have a theoretical component followed by a related practical component. The students will learn and deal with different types of raw data related with cetacean research. The environmental data will be transformed into workable variables and cetacean raw data into occurrences and survey effort. Cetacean data will be related with variables, and possible data exploration output maps will be created.

For the course is necessary student´s own personal computer, preferably with a minimum of 4Gb RAM. The software used in the course is free and open-source, and will be installed in the beginning of the first class.

A certificate will be presented in the end of the course.
