Topics in Australian Marine Science (TAMS)

TAMS is the core subject in the Master of Marine Science and Management programme that is taught at the Sydney Institute of Marine Science (SIMS). TAMS is team-taught by scientists from the four SIMS’ partner universities: University of Technology Sydney, Macquarie, University of NSW and University of Sydney. You will be learning from the leaders in Australia’s marine science community and will be learning alongside your peers. You will be introduced to current research undertaken in Australia in various disciplines of marine science whilst using a range of tools to analyse the diversity of datasets collected by marine scientists and made available via the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) Portal. This course establishes postgraduate students with a much needed practical introduction to statistical analysis of environmental data that covers large temporal and spatial scales.

Jessica Boomer, is the contact for all matters relating to the teaching of TAMS at SIMS for students from the four universities.
