Training Courses

BOSCORF runs two short training courses each year for PhD students and Early Career Researchers (ECRs). We also provide one-to-one training on specific instruments, in case your project requires it.


Non-Destructive Core Logging Course

The non-destructive core logging course is intended for later-stage PhDs and ECRs with large volumes of non-destructive core logging data, with a particular focus on XRF data. This course will focus on the Avaatech and Itrax XRF Core Scanners, and how each system works. Additionally, an introduction will be given to Multi Sensor Core Logger datasets and sediment core radiography techniques. Tutorials will cover the data limitations, methods for quality controlling the data and a variety of tools to aid in the presentation and assessment of data. Students will also be introduced to software solutions designed for handling Itrax and other core logging and scanning data.


New course dates will be announced in 2023.


Marine Sediment Cores: Analysis & Interpretation 

In collaboration with BSRG, BOSCORF is offering an introduction to a wide range of marine sedimentary environments. The workshop is specifically for PhD students or sedimentologists with limited experience of working with marine sediment cores. This will provide beginners with the opportunity to get hands-on training on how to visualy log sediment cores.


New course dates will be announced in 2023.
