Students from NUIG, Maynooth and UCC took part in an two day practical course on board the RV Celtic Explorer. 

Coordinated alongside fisheries guru Mr. John Boyd, Luke and Larissa demonstrated ship based acquisition of oceanographic, sedimentology and ecological data sets, including sea floor mapping of the Cork Harbour region. 
Since 2009, SMART (short for Strategic Marine Alliance for Research and Training) seaschool has been delivering crucial offshore skills to Irish undergraduate and postgraduate students. For many, it serves as the starting point in gaining experience in the marine sector. For more information on SMART Seaschool  check out their website
