RBR Ltd Lunch & Learn: Optimizing Coastal Measurements: An Instrumentation Workshop

Coastal ocean observations, as fundamental and exciting as they are, can also be quite the daunting task. As an instrumentation provider, RBR has recognized that those who take the time to become familiar with, care for, and understand the limitations and strengths of their equipment often have the greatest successes in the field.

This workshop is a forum to spark interests in understanding oceanographic sensor measurement methods, improving the quality of field data, increasing deployment success rates, and improving the safety of those conducting the observations. We will focus on best practices, practical maintenance, deployment considerations, and a few tips and tricks to help get the most from your ocean observing equipment. The material covered is applicable to a wide variety of common instrumentation.

About

The Scripps Technical Forum (STF) is a grassroots effort to make technical expertise and resources more widely available within the UCSD/Scripps community; to enhance communications between technical staff and departments; explore extended opportunities for interdepartmental collaboration, technology transfer, and industry interactions; to explore innovative solutions to emerging challenges; to monitor and disseminate trends and new technologies; and, aid in personnel retention and enhance job satisfaction, including continuing education, and opportunities for job growth.

The group is open to anyone within SIO and UCSD interested in applied technology. We host a semi-monthly midday meeting with free food and an interesting program of presentations given by members of the community and industry.
