The Second Xiamen Spring School on Ocean Dynamics (XMOD II)
May 6-10, 2019
The Xiamen Spring School on Ocean Dynamics (XMOD) aims at introducing fundamental ocean dynamics, from the basics to the research frontiers, to graduate students and early-career scientists.
The first XMOD (XMOD I), with the theme of Ocean Dynamics at Meso- and Submeso- Scales, was held on March 12–17, 2018 at the State Key Laboratory of Marine Environmental Science (MEL) of Xiamen University. The two principal lecturers in XMOD I were Dr. Bo Qiu (University of Hawaii at Manoa) and Dr. Patrice Klein (Ifremer / Caltech).
The second XMOD (XMOD II) will be held on May 6-10, 2019 by MEL, Xiamen University. The theme of XMOD II is Upper Ocean Dynamics. The XMOD consists of principal lectures and invited talks. The principal lectures will be given in English while the invited talks could be in either English or Chinese.
