Chlorophyll a concentration is an index of phytoplankton biomass and it is the most common property that characterizes marine productivity. Satellite remote-sensing images of ocean colour, calibrated as chlorophyll concentration provide a unique approach to monitor the productivity of the oceans and seas worldwide. Read More...
The Sultanate of Oman occupies the south-eastern corner of the Arabian Peninsula and has a total area of 312,500 km2.
It is bordered in the north-west by the United Arab Emirates, in the west by Saudi Arabia and in the south-west by Yemen. A detached area of Oman, separated from the rest of the country by the United Arab Emirates, lies at the tip of the Musandam Peninsula, on the southern shore of the Strait of Hormuz.
The TRC Open Research Grant program aims at enhancing research capacity in the Sultanate of Oman by allocating small to mid-sized research grants for short and mid-term projects.
This results from demand-driven research initiatives to support researchers, including higher education students, in conducting projects within their areas of interest.
The program promotes investigator driven research and encourages research-led projects based on international standards.
The program also aims to build the research capacity in the country by supporting higher education students with funded projects.
The project is funded by the Research Council (Sultanate of Oman)
