In 2015, the first NF-POGO shipboard training in the form of the “Floating Summer School” on the North South Atlantic Transect (NoSoAT) cruise provided training during a five week long transit from Bremerhaven (Germany) to Cape Town (South Africa). In total thirty-four post-graduate students were trained in the principles of oceanography and marine biology onboard the RV Polarstern comprising of lectures, practical exercises and student presentations. Eight of those scholars were supported by NF-POGO.
The training was co-sponsored by AWI, SMART, NF-POGO and Mercator Foundation.
