Second National Training on Sea-Bird Scientific Sensors and Ocean Data Collection in Chennai, India
Over 60 participants from 18 Indian science institutions gather for three days of training
The overwhelming success of the first Sea-Bird Scientific international training initiative in India, held in November 2012, led to the creation of the second training program. In 2012, 47 participants from 10 organizations took part. In 2016, we had over 60 participants from 18 Institutions gather for the training. We look forward to strengthening the relationships and building closer scientific ties with those institutions.

Sea-Bird Scientific offers regularly
scheduled four-day training classes approximately two times per year at
an off-site location near our office/factory in Bellevue, Washington (12
miles from downtown Seattle). Through our comprehensive training
modules, we teach our customers how to get the most from their
instruments. Training consists of operator training on major Sea-Bird
Scientific products and software, and is hands-on in nature. The curriculum covers
profiling instruments, thermosalinographs, and moored instruments, and
includes theory and operation, data processing, and maintenance and
repair. We encourage you to take advantage of our expertise and
participate in our training classes. Our next 4-day training classes are scheduled for May 16-19 and October 3-6, 2016.

Tech Tip: Care and Cleaning of Conductivity Cells
Since any conductivity sensor’s output reading is proportional to its cell dimensions, it is important to keep the cell clean of internal coatings. Cell electrodes contaminated with oil, biological growths, or other foreign material will eventually cause low conductivity readings.
