Universitat de Barcelona
The University of Barcelona is the most formidable public institution of higher education in Catalonia, catering to the needs of the greatest number of students and delivering the broadest and most comprehensive offering in higher educational courses. The UB is also the principal centre of university research in Spain and has become a European benchmark for research activity, both in terms of the number of research programmes it conducts and the excellence these have achieved.
Fundació Navegació Oceànica Barcelona
The Barcelona Foundation for Ocean Sailing (FNOB), was created with three strategic objectives in mind: sports, industry & technology and communication, and devised to undertake a series of projects geared towards promoting and boosting activities related to top-level ocean sailing. To fulfil these objectives, the FNOB defined four key strategic areas: R&D, Education and Knowledge, Science & Technology and the Environment.

excelente explicacion de toda la dinamica oceanica que nos involucra a la sociedad desde una vista actual. fundamental y muy interesante todos los conceptos dados que mejoran el conocimiento

Este curso fue muy bueno para mí, ya que me ayudó a saber el cómo los océanos impactan en el clima y regulan al mismo. En saber más sobre su composición, en sus parámetros y forma de medirlos, también el como ya existe un sinnúmero de sistemas que auxilian a la oceanografía en las mediciones de diversos fenómenos que ocurren en las aguas marítimas.

Agradezco mucho a todos los implicados en conformar este gran curso que, para los neófitos como to, nos da una idea muy adecuada de este tópico.

This course was well-organized, explained and complete. It gives you different viewpoints and tools to study oceanography and correlate it with multiple branches not only in research fields (like geochemistry, climate change) but also in private companies (sustainable explotation of materials). Highly recomendable!

Excelente curso, útil, didáctico, hermoso
