Spatial R course for Iratxe and Alba funded by Euromarine
While Iratxe studies the distributional shifts of tropical tuna fisheries in the Atlantic, Alba explores the role of spatial planning in the management of benthic fisheries. Both FOL members are interested in the understanding of how the fisheries of their case studies can compensate the expected impacts of climate change. To be able to answer their research questions, both students have been working with R and spatial data during the start of their PhDs.
To keep improving her programming skills, Iratxe and Alba attend this week to the “Advanced analysis of spatial data in R” being held at the Department of Geography at the University of Zaragoza (Spain) from June 26th to 29th . The course is taughted by the Spanish Climatology Association (AEC) in collaboration with the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), and counts with the lectures of 3 reknown researchers in the field: Santiago Beguería, Yolanda Pueyo and Roberto Serrano.
Alba and Iratxe are attending this course thanks to the full grant awarded by Euromarine, a European marine science network which seeks to support the identification and initial development of important emerging scientific topics or issues and associated methodologies in marine sciences. Since R is an essential tool for research, Euromarine has given the opportunity to our young researchers to take the course to keep advancing in their PhDs!
