Invitation to the day of open doors of the Marine biology station Piran, National institute of biology, 25. 9. 2020
You are invited to the day of open doors of the Marine biology station Piran, National institute of biology.
In case of a small number of applications, the organizer reserves the right to change the program.
The Matlab scripts for the initial dilution were translated to work also in Octave, the free software available at https://www.gnu.org/software/octave/, which you may easily install on your computer.
Octave scripts for the initial dilution of polluted water are available here, which need to be put in the folder that is noted by Octave. In the Octave command window one needs only to run the script by typing "run splinmat".
The scripts were edited by Boris Petelin.
Prof. dr. Vlado Malačič from Marine Biological Station Piran of the National Institute of Biology has been involved in research of the dilution of fecal contaminated meteoric water from municipal discharges into the sea for more than 20 years. In this regard, several reports have been written, as well as articles in reputable international journals. Prof. dr. Malačič also developed a computer program that calculates such dilution.
You can get the source code of the program in Matlab, the data required for it, and the reports and articles related to dilution at the following link.
From 25–27 November, 2019 the European COST Action “Ocean Governance for Sustainability – Challenges, Options and the Role of Science” (CA15217) gathers for their 4th International conference in the coastal city of Piran, Slovenia. The conference is hosted by the National Institute of Biology (NIB) under the coordination of the Local Organiser Valentina Turk, Alenka Malej, and Jerneja Penca, who are excited to welcome around 55 participants from 29 countries from science and politics discussing the future of our oceans during a variety of scientific workshops and lectures.

''Together we can protect and restore our ocean''
We are pleased to announce to the users of the Oceanographic buoy "VIDA" website that the work on the repair of Vida is completed. The buoy is operational again - currently are available the data on wind, air temperature and humidity, sea currents and waves. The data on sea temperature and salinity, as well the dissolved oxygen, will be available at the latest within one week.
Marine Biology Station Piran, Nacional Institute of Biology is organizing the Working Group Meeting of the COST Action OceanGov from 7th till 8th March 2019 in Piran, Slovenia
