R shiny apps for beginners
Date: 23 September 2021 at 12:00 - 13:30 UTC
Workshop leader: Lilith Kramer
Category: Software Skills
Level: Beginner
Description: R shiny apps for beginners is a short course on how shiny code works. It contains a section on the basic structure of an app, multiple examples of what kind of functionality you could add, and a three short exercises. In the last exercise people can apply their new knowledge to a demo-app (available at Click here for a video recording of the workshop.

Process-based aquatic ecosystem modeling
Date: 28 September 2021 at 15:00 - 19:00 UTC
Workshop leader:
Robert Ladwig
Category: Modeling
Level: Beginner
Description: Aquatic ecosystem models are representations of real-world processes in aquatic ecosystems. These models provide the opportunity to explore scientific and engineering ideas or scenarios, and increase our scientific understanding of aquatic systems. Model simulations can also be used as experiments that are not possible to field-test for physical, logistical, political or financial reasons. 

In this short course, we will provide a general introduction about process-based aquatic ecosystem modeling. We will use the coupled vertical one-dimensional hydrodynamic-ecological model GLM-AED2. The aim of this course is to give a general introduction about process-based modeling of aquatic ecosystems. In the introduction, we will focus on modeling basics (mathematical description of hydrodynamics and ecological processes, design of GLM). Afterwards, we will work on hands-on exercises in the R environment using GLM-AED2. Click here for a video recording of the workshop.

Remote sensing technologies as a complement for the study of inland waters
Date: 29 September 2021 at 12:30 - 15:00 UTC
Workshop leader:
 Carmen Cillero
CategoryRemote sensing / GIS
Level: Beginner
Description: The objective of this 2 hour workshop is to provide an interactive environment to introduce remote sensing technologies and their application in supporting effective understanding and management of freshwater systems. Participants will gain an insight into how start to use available remote sensing products and develop synergies with traditional and sensor-based monitoring techniques. Contributors include: Carmen Cillero, Igor Ogashawara, Alo Laas, Valerie McCarthy and Stefan Simis. Click here for a video recording of the workshop.

Date: 29 September 2021 at 15:00 - 16:00 UTC
Workshop leader:
 Lisette de Senerpont Domis (and other panelists)
Category: Career development
Level: Beginner
Description: A panel discussion on getting more involved in publications. Panelists include: Juan Corley, Kathy Cottingham, Nuria Catalan, Patricia Soranno and Facundo Scordo. Click here for a video recording of the workshop.
