Gain hands-on experience with the same sensors used on GO-BGC profiling floats
The Scripps Makerspace offers an undergraduate (SIOG179) and graduate course (SIOG267), inspired by the same science and technology that drive the GO-BGC program. These courses offer UCSD students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with the same sensors used on BGC profiling floats. During the ten week courses, students learn about instrument operation, calibration, data processing, and scientific interpretation of BGC sensor data. Advanced topics include customization of deployment platforms and datalogging techniques used for the GO-BGC sensors in support of student-driven research projects.
