 International Radiowave Oceanography Workshop,   19 - 21 September 2017 in Lüneburg, Germany

The successful series of the international Radiowave Oceanography Workshop (ROW) has focused on the scientific aspects of ocean applications of high frequency radars.
ROW 2017 is the next in this series and will provide a forum for researchers to discuss their results, swap data and algorithms, and identify priorities for future research.
If you would like to participate please refer to the registration section.

3) Summer School for HF- and X-band radars in Caen, France

The 2017 Summer School on HF and X-band radars is calling for applications !
Courses will be hosted at Caen University and Coastal and Continental Morphodynamic Lab (M2C), August 21-25, 2017.

This Summer School, sponsored by Caen University, CNRS and Coastal and Continental Morphodynamic Lab, is aimed at exposing researchers to:

- a general overview on radio-oceanography (history, marine applications, existing networks...),
- a course on fundamentals for radio-oceanography to provide tools to understand next lectures,
- a course on different HF and X-band technologies and their measurements and validation steps,
- a course on data analysis methods for surface currents and sea states, with pratical exercices on computers of Caen University,
- a course on data assimilation techniques for the inclusion of radar data in numerical models,
- two cases of study with HF radars: one for marine renewable energy (Iroise sea) and one for tsunami detection (American West Coast).
Program also includes a visit of the HF radar site in Cap de La Hague on 22 August 2017.

We invite applications from early-career researchers engaged in general research activities at academic and non-academic institutions, as well those enrolled in graduate and/or post-doctoral studies.
