Summerschool 2017

Title: "GIS applications in Savanna ecology and hydrology"

We are happy to announce the 3rd OPTIMASS Summer School. This year the summer school will tackle the topic of “GIS applications in Savanna ecology and hydrology”.

The summer school will take place:

  • at UNAM Library Auditorium, Windhoek
  • from July 24th to 28th 2017

Lectures will be given by Dr. Heike Wanke from UNAM and Dr. Morgan Hauptfleisch from NUST. The course will include a one day excursion with data acquisition. The collected data will later on be used for practical work with GIS software.

The course is open for up to 18 participants from Namibia and Germany who are affiliated to one of the Namibian or German OPTIMASS institutions. Applicants working in the OPTIMASS project will be considered first, SASSCAL students are explicitly invited to apply, too. The participation will be free of charge. Participants from Germany can apply for a travel grant. All participants should bring their own computer.
