Dear Colleagues,


The call for TTRS Training Through Research Surveys for graduate and postgraduate students of marine related sciences is now open. TTRS provides exciting opportunities for graduate and postgraduate students, and researchers of marine science and technologies to gain seagoing experience on a range of research cruises on board the RV Celtic Explorer.


This programme is designed to provide mentored training for emerging marine scientists on surveys taking place off the western seaboard of Ireland and ranging as far as Newfoundland.


CE14004 West of Ireland Coring Programme (WICpro) UCC and partners, 6th to 18th of March


CE14006 Atlantic Transect Westbound , Memorial University Newfoundland, 12th to 22nd April


CE14008 Ocean Climate Sections and Geology, Marine Institute, 23rd of May to 4th of June


CE14010 North West Herring Acoustic Survey, Marine Institute, 22nd of June and the 12th of July


CE14014 Monitoring of Acoustic Noise from Seismic Surveys, NUIG, 17th to 23rd of September


TTRS survey information and application procedures are available online at:


We would be grateful if you could circulate this information to fellow students and researchers.


The Training through Research Surveys (TTRS) scheme is a collaboration between SMART and the Marine Institute that aims to increase national capacity in marine research and data collection by deepening the skills base of graduate and postgraduate students of marine related sciences through participation in research surveys.


Participation in all TTRS research surveys is subject to permission of the chief scientist. SMART is grateful to the chief scientists and their survey partners for providing berths to the TTRS programme.


Best wishes,
