Marine Subtidal Ecology and AAUS Science Diver Course

06/11/2018 - 07/13/2018
University of Washington, Friday Harbor

Marine Subtidal Ecology and AAUS Science Diver Course

The University of Washington, Friday Harbor Laboratories is offering a Marine Subtidal Ecology course June 11- July 13, 2018.  This course focuses on learning key ecological concepts, skills, and tools applied to the subtidal marine environment. Of primary importance, students will be trained as AAUS scientific divers.  Students will conduct group and independent research projects addressing a tractable question in temperate subtidal ecology; the skills and principles of ecology will, however, be broadly applicable to underwater science. The training will include visits (and input!) from scientific diving instructors from around the NW, evening discussions of accident case studies, and extensive pool and in-water skills and rescue drills.  More information  at https://fhl.uw.edu/courses/coursedescriptions/course/marine-subtidal-ecology-2018or email pema@uw.edu.

Heritage Awareness Diving Seminars (HADS)

06/14/2018 - 06/16/2018
Key West, FL

Heritage Awareness Diving Seminars (HADS)

Two HADS workshops are planned for June 2018. The first will be in Key West in partnership with the Key West Art and Historical Society on June 14-16, and the second will be in Islamorada in partnership with the History of Diving Museum on June 18-20. HADS is intended to explain the advantages of conserving shipwrecks and other submerged cultural resources, not only to preserve information about the past, but also to preserve the vibrant ecosystems that grow around historic shipwrecks. HADS focuses on providing SCUBA dive leaders with a greater knowledge of how to proactively protect shipwrecks, artificial reefs, and other underwater cultural sites as part of the marine environment.

 Each HADS consists of two evenings of classroom instruction and one day of open water diving on two historic shipwrecks. Participants will receive the HADS workbook and a USB with all PowerPoint presentations to use in their own classes. Upon completion of HADS, participants can also submit paperwork to teach the Heritage Awareness Diving Specialty Course through SDI, PADI, or NAUI. HADS is taught by the Florida Public Archaeology Network (a program of the University of West Florida) in coordination with the Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. For more information, those interested can contact Nicole Grinnan at ngrinnan@uwf.edu or visit FPAN.us/HADS.

The Functional Roles of Mesophotic Coral Reefs in the Anthropocene Conference

06/18/2018 - 06/22/2018
Bates College in Lewiston, ME

The Functional Roles of Mesophotic Coral Reefs in the Anthropocene

The Mesophotic Coral Reef Ecosystems Gordon Research Conference will be held June 18-22, 2018 at Bates College in Lewiston, ME. The number of scientists studying MCEs is growing rapidly and includes coral reef ecologists, molecular biologists, oceanographers, physiologists, biogeochemists, paleo-climatologists, fisheries biologists, microbiologists, chemical ecologists, population geneticists and managers interested in resource conservation. This GRC will attract experts from around the world, as well as students and post-doctoral researchers, to present new data and evaluate the evidence supporting the multiple factors controlling the structure and function of MCE communities worldwide.
