Boris Chubarenko

Atlantic Branch of the P.P. Shirshov Institute of Oceanology, Kalingrad, RussiaInstitut des Sciences de la Mer de Rimouski (ISMER) in Quebec, Canada

Dr. Chubarenko’s interests lie in operational oceanographic observations and related modelling in coastal zones and lagoons. His research takes place at the Atlantic Branch of the P.P. Shirshov Institute of Oceanology in Kalingrad, Russia. His fellowship takes him to Institut des Sciences de la Mer de Rimouski (ISMER) in Quebec, Canada for a month of training under the supervision of Dr. Vladimir Koutitonsky.

Javier Diaz

University of Concepción, ChileUtrecht University, Netherlands

Mr. Diaz is involved in research at the Center for Oceanographic Research in the Eastern South Pacific (FONDAP/COPAS), through the University of Concepción. He underwent training on chemical analysis of continental shelf/slope organic phosphorus (Pfish), supervised by Dr. Gert de Lange at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. Duration of the training was three months.

Vagner Duarte

Fundação Universidade Federal do Rio Grande (FURG), BrazilAtlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory, USA.

Mr. Duarte is involved in the MOVAR Project that will deploy argo floats in the central part of the South Atlantic Ocean, as coordinated by Fundação Universidade Federal do Rio Grande (FURG). His fellowship was used for one month of training in processing data from, and deployment of, ARGO floats. The training was supervised by Dr. Claudia Schmid at the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory in Florida, USA.

Mohsen El-Sherbiny

Suez Canal University, EgyptCentre for Marine Environmental Studies, Ehime University, Japan

Mr. El-Sherbiny’s interests lie in ecology and taxonomy of Red Sea zooplankton; he conducts research and is a lecturer at Suez Canal University’s Marine Science Department. The fellowship takes him to Japan’s Centre for Marine Environmental Studies at Ehime University for three months training in advanced marine copepod identification, under the supervision of Dr. Hiroshi Ueda.

Ricardo Giesecke

University of Concepción, ChileAWI, Germany

Mr. Giesecke conducts research at the University of Concepción’s Oceanography Department regarding the ecological role of chaetognaths on the pelagic food web and their contribution to vertical carbon fluxes. The POGO-IOC-SCOR fellowship allowed him to join an Antarctic expedition aboard the Alfred Wegner Institute’s RV Polarstern for 2 months, supervised by AWI’s Prof. Ulrich Bathmann.

Rosane Ito

University of São Paulo, BrazilUniversity of Perpignan, France

Dr. Ito is employed by the University of São Paulo; she is a teacher of marine chemistry and a
researcher in the area of dissolved gases in seawater. With her fellowship she spent 2 months at
France’s University of Perpignan evaluating anthropogenic CO2 in seawater. The supervisor at
the host institution was Dr. Catherine Goyet.

Juan Placencia

University of Concepción, ChileJAMSTEC, Japan

Mr. Placencia’s work involves estimates of sea surface processes using geochemical proxies; he
is a graduate student at the University of Concepción. He undertook 3 months of training in
analyses of molecular and isotope proxies to estimate trends in sea surface temperature,
productivity, and pCO2 recorded in marine sediment. The training took place at JAMSTEC
supervised by Dr. Naomi Harada.

Satya Prakash

Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad, IndiaUniversity of Concepción, Chile

Mr. Prakash is a junior research fellow at Physical Research Laboratory in Ahmedabad. He will
spend 3 months in Chile, where Dr. Osvaldo Ulloa will oversee his training in determination of
photosynthesis-light (P-I) curves using C13, for application in remote sensing.

Shovonlal Roy

Indian Statistical Institute, IndiaUniversity of Manchester, UK

Mathematical modelling of plankton dynamics is the field of interest for Mr. Roy, a junior research fellow at the Indian Statistical Institute. He travelled to the University of Manchester to develop new mathematical techniques to assess marine primary production based on field data and remote sensing. His 3 months of training was supervised by Prof. David Broomhead of the School of Mathematics.

Wei Jianwei

First Institute of Oceanography, ChinaDalhousie University, Canada

Mr. Wei Jianwei’s research at First Institute of Oceanography focuses on bio-optical oceanography and biogeochemistry. His fellowship took him to the Oceanography Department of Dalhousie University in Canada, where for 3 months he underwent instruction in fixed point time series observations and emerging technologies for ocean instrumentation. Dr. Marlon Lewis was the host supervisor.
