Transition year Workshop: Environmental Monitoring in a Changing Climate. Run by CHERISH and Acclimatize projects
On Thursday 19 and Friday 20 March 2020, from 9.15 am to 4.30pm, the CHERISH and Acclimatize projects are inviting 2 Transition Year students from 8 different schools to attend a two day workshop based at University College Dublin. Here, they will learn about and experience techniques for monitoring and understanding coastal environments.
This workshop will be of interest to students who are thinking about studying science, geology/geography and civil engineering.
The workshop will include one day from CHERISH and one day from Acclimatize. The CHERISH day includes a field trip to Killiney Bay and will involve learning about the drone surveying and laser scanning techniques, that can successfully monitor our coasts to reduce the impacts of climate change to coastal communities. On the Acclimatize day you will find out more about how water quality in rivers and bathing waters in measured. You will gain hands on experience in sample collection and analysis as well as learning about molecular biology techniques for use in the environment and water modelling through the use of hydrological equipment.
