The Training School: “Etna International training school of Geochemistry, science meet practice”

The Training School is going to take place at the “Osservatorio Vulcanologico Pizzi Deneri” on top of Mt. Etna (Italy), from 30 July to 4 August of 2018. The school is addressed to MSc holders, PhD students and postdoctoral researchers. Its main aim is to bring together the next generation of researchers, active in studies concerning geochemistry, and to introduce them with innovating direct sampling and remote sensing techniques. The Training School is going to keep a low-cost philosophy, providing students with a unique field experience supported by a group of expert teachers in a spectacular volcanic scenery.

Furthermore, it gives young scientists the opportunity to experiment and evaluate new protocols and techniques to be used on volcanic fluid emissions covering a broad variety of methods. The school is organized by researchers of: the INGVs of Catania, Palermo and Bologna; the Universities of Palermo, Florence and Calabria; National and Kapodistrian University of Athens; Max Planck Institute for Chemistry and University of Heidelberg; IVAR, University of the Azores.

Application deadline: 29 April 2018 at 12:00 am UTC

Thursday, january 18, secon workshop “Underwater acoustics in Sicily”

Thursday, january 18, secon workshop “Underwater acoustics in Sicily”, organized by the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia Palermo and the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare, at the INGV Palermo, street Ugo La Malfa n.153.

Since the early 2000s, thanks to national, regional and European projects (NEMO, KM3NeT, EMSO-Medit and SMO), abyssal detectors equipped with acoustic, optical and environmental sensors have been installed for the study of particle astrophysics (KM3NeT project) and of the marine environment. The state-of-the-art technologies developed by INFN and its partners for the realization of the network and of the observatories have enabled the first long-term studies of the deep marine environment of the Ionian Sea with a variety of lines of research, and in particular on: Underwater acoustics, Marine Biology and Ecology and Oceanography.
