Marine Sciences

The doctoral degree in Marine Sciences is an interuniversity programme in which the Universitat de Barcelona (UB) and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) participate, as well as three centres belonging to the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC): the Marine Sciences Institute (ICM), the Advanced Studies Centre of Blanes (CEAB) and the Research and Development Centre (CID). The programme received a positive evaluation from the Catalan University Quality Assurance Agency (AQU) in July 2013 and the Universities Council in September 2013.

Like so many other scientific and technical fields, the marine sciences are undergoing a process of rapid change in their very nature. (Some describe the field as a meeting place for all scientific disciplines.) This change is also driven by the high rate of development and innovation in the activities that the marine sciences encompass. It is therefore necessary to extend, update and deepen the training of master’s students, both in the marine sciences and in the disciplines that converge in this field (civil engineering, naval engineering, geology, biology, physics, chemistry and mathematics). Undertaking advanced studies beyond the master’s level is the best way for future professionals to get the training they need in this field, in which new areas of activity are constantly emerging, such as exploitation of marine renewable energies (a relatively new field in Spain) and exploration for mineral and energy resources in deep and ultra-deep waters.

The doctoral degree in Marine Sciences of the UB and the UPC (the programme coordinator) combines advanced, flexible training elements with a critical mass of renowned researchers and technical experts, top-notch facilities (both in the laboratory and at sea), outstanding scientific activity, and highly significant socioeconomic activity linked to the sea. Thanks to these assets, the programme provides the best framework to guide and direct students who wish to complete their academic training by preparing a doctoral thesis in this area.

The UPC and the UB have collaborated effectively since 1985 to deliver the programme, building a strong working relationship and rapport in their educational and scientific approaches. This productive partnership, the number of theses presented (and the grades awarded), and international publications linked to this work all attest to the ability of these two universities to continue producing doctoral graduates who are well prepared to pursue a career in this field. Within Spain, the UB is a leader in the experimental sciences, while the UPC has a reputation for excellence in the field of engineering. Both universities, and in particular the centres and research groups that support the programme, hold consistently strong positions in international rankings. The UB is the top-ranked Spanish university in physics, chemistry, chemical engineering, biological sciences, earth sciences and environmental sciences. The UPC is ranked number one in engineering and second in mathematics. Both are well-positioned on international rankings, including the Shanghai Rankings. The UB, in fact, is the top-ranked university at the national level. The UPC, for its part, has earned a place on the QS Top 50 Under 50, which ranks the world’s top young universities. The joint research projects of the two institutions in the marine sciences (both national and European) are at the frontier of knowledge. This is clearly reflected in the early recognition of the Barcelona Knowledge Campus (BKC), where the disciplines that converge in the field of marine sciences hold pride of place, as a joint International Campus of Excellence. These markers of excellence demonstrate the high degree of competitiveness of the two universities that support the doctoral programme and their researchers (including in EU programmes, where a relatively small proportion of proposals are awarded funding). The UB, the UPC, and the departments and groups of both universities involved in the programme offer students the multidisciplinary approach needed to ensure effective training in the various branches of marine sciences (biology, geology, physics, chemistry, engineering and management). Opportunities to get involved in active research projects and contracts further enrich the learning experience. In addition, the programme’s extensive network of external collaborations—with the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO), and other public and private research bodies—enables doctoral students to find the arrangements and scientific framework that best match their area of research. Within Spain, Catalonia (and in particular Barcelona) has one of the highest and richest concentrations of universities and research centres in the marine sciences, and their complementary relationship is reflected in an abundance of infrastructure and human capital. The training offered, as well as the approach and capabilities, are comparable and often superior to those of the doctoral programmes in marine sciences of European and American universities. Apart from being home to the UPC and the UB, CSIC centres and the Port of Barcelona, Barcelona offers other significant advantages. In Europe, this privileged situation is only matched by the University of Southampton and the National Oceanography Centre (NOC), the Kiel-Bremen area (GEOMAR and MARUM) and Brest (IFREMER and the University of West Brittany).

The UB and the UPC maintain close collaborations with all of these institutions and many others in Europe within the framework of research projects and educational programmes (e.g. the Erasmus Mundus master’s degree in Coastal and Marine Engineering and Management, CoMEM, organised with the universities of Delft, Trondheim and Southampton, and the EURODOM Research Training Network on European Deep Ocean Margins—both projects now completed). The UB has strong collaborations in marine research with the NOC, IFREMER, the Royal Netherlands Institute of Sea Research (NIOZ), the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (HCMR), GEOMAR, the Italian Institute for Marine Research (ISMAR), the Alfred Wegener Institute, the University of Tromsø, the National University of Ireland, the Hydrographic Institute of Portugal, the University of Ghent, the Max Plank Institute and the University of Bremen, among other institutions. The UPC, for its part, collaborates with the NOC and HR Wallingford in the UK, Deltares in the Netherlands, DHI in Denmark, IFREMER, the Naval Hydrographic and Oceanographic Service (SHOM) and the Météo doctoral programme in France. This wide network of collaborations with European institutions in research projects, training and other activities allows us to continuously check how the level and competitiveness of the doctoral programme measures up against those offered by similar institutions and partnerships in the EU. These connections also enable us to establish specific cooperative relationships involving the exchange of professors (usually within the framework of mobility programmes), research and doctoral students, as well as facilitating the completion of joint co-supervised theses, a growing trend. More broadly, these collaborations offer clear benefits and an international frame of reference for all doctoral students.

Within this framework, the main aim of the interuniversity doctoral programme in Marine Sciences is to ensure that students from related master’s degrees (particularly the master’s degree in Marine Science: Oceanography and Marine Management, also offered jointly by the UB and the UPC) receive advanced training that meets the highest international standards. The two joint UB-UPC programmes in this field are the most recent result of a long-standing collaboration that dates back to the 1980s, when the two universities started offering joint doctoral courses, and has culminated in the participation of academic staff from both institutions in the interuniversity master’s programme, which has now been offered for six years. In the marine sciences, the master’s and doctoral programme that emerged from this partnership have been granted a series of quality awards by the Spanish Ministry of Education since they were launched. The doctoral programme was granted the Pathway to Excellence award from 2010 (MEE2011-0703: 2011, 2012, 2013) and, before that, the Quality award from 2003 (MCD2003-00141: 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009).

The programme allows doctoral students to delve into the latest advances in marine sciences with the support of UPC and UB professors and researchers as well as visiting scholars (on mobility stays or in connection with research projects carried out at the two institutions). In this environment, students are able to constantly update and assess their training and ensure that their thesis is on the right track. This is particularly important given that a doctoral thesis is a student’s first, and therefore most important, research project—a key project that they must be able to manage and complete with the support of their assigned supervisor and tutor. The learning experience is also enriched by interdisciplinary input from the departments and groups of the two institutions behind the doctoral programme. The programme offers students opportunities to participate in a wide range of activities, including oceanographic campaigns with large ships (observations, measurements, in situ sampling, acquisition of geophysical data); field measurement seminars in the coastal zone and on the continental shelf; learning how to process and visualise large volumes of data (bathymetric, geophysical, oceanographic, etc.); development of numerical models (surges, sediment transport); and integrated management analyses (coastal areas, seabed). As a result, uses of the seabed, understanding and sustainable exploitation of marine resources, quality assessment of waters and the ecosystem, and management of coastal and marine areas are core elements of the doctoral programme. These activities naturally entail the use of a diverse range of information sources, types of data (from satellite images to microorganisms and sedimentary particles) and spatial and temporal scales, though each doctoral student will focus on those most relevant to the development of their thesis.

All of the work done within the framework of the programme converges in a characterisation of the dynamics and health of the Catalan coast (both land and marine components), which has become a pressing need for Catalonia and by extension Spain, both of which are heavily dependent on the coastal strip, which generates a significant percentage of GDP and is home to a large population. Similarly, given the impact of fishing activities and future threats to the sector, understanding the variables (natural and anthropogenic) that affect fishery yield is vital from both a social and a resource management perspective. Training in population dynamics and the genetic characterisation of organisms, including both commercially exploited and unexploited species, is therefore essential. Our country also needs experts trained in marine hazards, such as those generated by recent tsunamis and catastrophic storms. Finally, there is also a need for specialists in exploration of the seabed and sub-seabed, an increasingly important source of hydrocarbons and a reservoir of resources, such as gas hydrates, that could prove to be extraordinarily important. The Catalan coast is also being affected by the growing presence of rigid infrastructures, which modify its characteristics and produce a wide range of impacts.

All of these issues underscore the need for an approach to training and research that produces doctoral graduates who are specialists in marine sciences and presents coastal populations and society in general with the results of their research in theses and scientific papers, which have a key role to play in improving efficiency (and therefore sustainability) in the development of our seas and coasts. For example, ‘enough’ beaches need to be maintained without excessive economic costs or environmental impact, and added value must be generated by using the tools of operational oceanography to manage risks in the coastal zone, extract mineral and energy resources from the seabed and sub-seabed, prevent risks and manage fisheries.

The social and industrial fabric of Catalonia and Spain needs to absorb this advanced knowledge to reach levels of efficiency that make it possible to tackle challenges related to the current economic upheaval in a marine ecosystem subject to a high level of stress. Only if this is achieved will it be possible to mitigate natural and anthropogenic impacts on the coastal zone. Persistent organic pollutants and microplastics that have reached the most remote places in the global ocean and entered its food chain are just one example of the many challenges that need to be tackled.

The interuniversity doctoral programme in Marine Sciences covers six of the priority research areas established in Catalonia:

  • Environment. The coastal zone and near-shore marine waters are one of the most biologically productive areas with one of the highest concentrations of population and socioeconomic value, particularly in the Mediterranean Basin.
  • Sensitivity to climate and climate variation. The sea-land boundary plays an important balancing role in relation to marine and terrestrial climate drivers.
  • Space. Now and in the coming years, most observations of environmental variables on the coastal strip and the sea will be made using remote images and data collected by instruments on planes, balloon probes and satellites. This focus is also in line with EU research priorities.

The marine sciences also include the following areas:

  • Transport. Maritime transport is one of the most energy-efficient alternatives.
  • Materials. Construction of new offshore structures requires a different type of analysis than that used for on-land construction.
  • Non-renewable and renewable energies. The latter have gained a great deal of momentum in recent years in the marine context.

The interuniversity doctoral programme in Marine Sciences also maintains a close relationship, based on mutual interest, with the drivers of technological development in the broadest sense, particularly in relation to the design, construction, verification and use of new information and communication technologies (ICT); remotely-piloted and autonomous vehicles that can reach the depths of the ocean; and systems for taking measurements and carrying out in situ operations on the seabed and in the sub-seabed (including at great depths). The advanced application of ICT in the marine environment responds to the need to transmit information at a distance, both for observation and to quantify risks and various processes that occur in that environment. Examples include LIDAR systems installed on oceanographic buoys and early detection and alert systems for storms and other geophysical phenomena.

The areas of activity mentioned above are also a priority in the strategic development plans of the UB and the UPC. This emphasis is reflected in existing research facilities (e.g. the UPC’s wave flume and the UB’s pool of instruments for monitoring the deep marine environment) and others under development (e.g. the UB’s laboratory for non-destructive analysis of geological samples, designed specifically to facilitate the study of sediment cores extracted from the seabed).

There is abundant evidence of the capabilities of the UB and the UPC: the number of research projects awarded competitive funding in recent calls; numerous contracts with companies, consortia and public-sector bodies; the Government of Catalonia’s official recognition of consolidated research groups (including the UPC and UB groups that coordinate the programme, in effect continuously since 1994); and the exceptional facilities that doctoral students have access to for carrying out thesis-related research work, including EU facilities and facilities that have been recognised as “outstanding” by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. These top-notch facilities include the UPC’s wave flume and the large oceanographic research vessels managed by various agencies and used mainly by the UB and the UPC. The creation of joint centres involving the CSIC, the UPC and the UB, and the two universities and the Government of Catalonia (all linked to this doctoral programme), is further evidence of the capabilities of the partner universities and their researchers, and of the synergies needed to provide doctoral students with specialised training in this field. The research, development and innovation strategy of the two institutions, and those of the public-sector bodies and companies that collaborate with them, benefits from the doctoral programme in Marine Sciences (which produces new specialists and transferable research results). Conversely, the doctoral programme benefits from a scientific, social and economic framework that facilitates the generation of new ideas and yields fruitful interactions for research and, sometimes, for its funding.

The results obtained over the more than 25 years that the joint doctoral programme in Marine Sciences has been offered—in terms of theses, papers and research projects, added value in training, and benefits to society—provide ample justification for the programme, which has also produced impressive results in terms of the ratio of theses to enrolled students, grants obtained, and the number of publications in journals with a very high impact factor. These strengths have been widely recognised. For example, a number of Latin American countries, including Brazil, Chile and Mexico, prioritise or grant exclusive status to this programme when awarding scholarships to their citizens to complete doctoral theses in the marine sciences in Spain. This preferential treatment also shows that the programme is very well regarded in the Spanish-speaking world.

Duration of studies and dedication regime

Duration
The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is three years, counted from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. The academic committee of the doctoral programme may authorise a doctoral candidate to pursue doctoral studies on a part-time basis. In this case, the maximum period of study is five years, counting from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. For calculating these periods, the date of admission is considered to be the date of the first enrolment for tutorials, and the date of submission the moment in which the Doctoral School officially deposits the doctoral thesis.

For full-time doctoral candidates, the minimum period of study is two years, counted from the date of an applicant's admission to the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited; for part-time doctoral candidates it is four years. When there are justified grounds for doing so, and the thesis supervisor and academic tutor have given their authorisation, doctoral candidates may request that the academic committee of their doctoral programme exempt them from the minimum period of study requirement.

The calculation of periods of study will not include periods of absence due to illness, pregnancy or any other reason provided for in the regulations in force. Students who find themselves in any of these circumstances must notify the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which, where appropriate, must inform the Doctoral School. Doctoral candidates may also temporarily withdraw from the programme for up to one year, and this period may be extended for an additional year. Doctoral candidates who wish to interrupt their studies must submit a justified request to the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which will decide whether or not to approve the request. Each programme will establish conditions for readmission to doctoral studies.

Extension
If full-time doctoral candidates have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, the academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year. In exceptional circumstances, a further one-year extension may be granted, subject to the conditions established by the corresponding doctoral programme. In the case of part-time doctoral candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

Dismissal from the doctoral programme
A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

Access, admission and registration

Access profile

The doctoral programme in Marine Sciences is aimed at students with a strong background at the bachelor’s and master's level, in accordance with the provisions of Royal Decree 99/2011, in marine sciences or a related field.

It is therefore also aimed at students who have completed degrees in biology, geology, environmental sciences, physics, chemistry, mathematics, geography or related fields. It is also a programme conceived and designed by and for engineers, preferably those who have completed a degree in civil or naval engineering. The doctoral course is also open to graduates of industrial engineering, telecommunications and architecture programmes. Students who hold equivalent degrees from foreign universities are also welcomed.

Access requirements

Applicants must hold a Spanish bachelor’s degree or equivalent and a Spanish master’s degree or equivalent, provided they have completed a minimum of 300 ECTS credits on the two degrees (Royal Decree 43/2015, of 2 February)

In addition, the following may apply:

  • Holders of an official degree awarded by a university in Spain or any other country in the European Higher Education Area, pursuant to the provisions of Article 16 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, of 29 October, which establishes official university course regulations, who have completed a minimum of 300 ECTS credits on official university degrees, of which at least 60 must be at the master's degree level.
  • Holders of an official Spanish bachelor’s degree comprising at least 300 credits, as provided for by EU regulations. Holder of degrees of this kind must complete bridging courses unless the curriculum of the bachelor’s degree in question included research training credits equivalent in value to those which would be earned on a master's degree.
  • Holders of an official university qualification who, having passed the entrance examination for specialised medical training, have completed at least two years of a training course leading to an official degree in a health-sciences specialisation.
  • Holders of a degree issued under a foreign education system. In these cases, homologation is not required, but the UPC must verify that the degree certifies a level of training equivalent to an official Spanish master's degree and qualifies the holder for admission to doctoral studies in the country where it was issued. Admission on this basis does not imply homologation of the foreign degree or its recognition for any purpose other than admission to doctoral studies.
  • Holders of a Spanish doctoral qualification issued under previous university regulations.
  • Note 1: Doctoral studies entrance regulations for holders of an undergraduate degree awarded before the introduction of the EHEA (CG 47/02 2014)

    Note 2: Governing Council Decision 64/2014, which approves the procedure and criteria for assessing the fulfilment of academic admission requirements for doctoral studies by holders of non-homologated foreign degrees (CG 25/03 2014)

Admission criteria and merits assessment

The main admission criterion is training within the framework of an official Spanish bachelor's degree (or equivalent) and a master's degree (or equivalent), that prepares the student to undertake and benefit from the research training provided on the doctoral programme in Marine Sciences.

Therefore, the following points will be given particular consideration:

• Master’s level or equivalent qualifications held by applicants (and corresponding course plans)
• Bachelor’s level or equivalent qualifications held by applicants (and corresponding course plans)
• Other merits for which the applicant has provided documentary proof, such as periods of mobility spent at marine science research centres, publications and professional experience

The admission process involves the following steps:

I. Applicants’ entrance qualifications are assessed. Those who hold degrees that are fully compatible with the doctoral programme are automatically pre-admitted. This applies in the case of degrees in:

a) Marine sciences and oceanography
b) Civil and naval engineering
c) Biology, geology, chemistry, physics, environmental sciences and mathematics

For other studies, the Programme Committee reviews the curriculum for the degree completed by the applicant and submits a proposal to the university where they plan to enrol if accepted.

In all cases, the secretary for the doctoral programme in Marine Sciences will verify that the curriculum includes the subjects most closely related to the four basic branches of marine sciences. This verification process may point to the need for a student to complete bridging courses. Relevant details will be discussed in an interview with the student concerned.

II. For pre-admitted students, an order of priority will be established based on the following factors (weighting in parentheses):

a) Marks for previous studies (55%).
b) Projects that introduce students to research (e.g. on master’s programmes), publications and contributions to conferences and scientific meetings mentioned on the applicant’s CV (30%).
c) Grants, scholarships or financial aid received (10%).
d) Other merits (5%).

Training complements

The academic committee for the programme may require that doctoral students pass specific bridging courses, which will be linked to research training credits. These credits will be compulsory for students who have completed a bachelor’s degree that carries 300 or more ECTS credits and qualifies them for admission to the doctoral programme but does not include credits of this type. In such cases, the committee will keep track of the bridging courses completed and establish appropriate criteria to limit their duration.

Bridging courses will provide research training. In no case may doctoral students be required to enrol for 60 or more ECTS credits. (The academic regulations for UPC doctoral courses state that bridging courses may also provide cross-disciplinary training, but it is anticipated that this point will be changed so that bridging courses are associated only with research training credits, particularly in the case of students admitted to a doctoral programme with a bachelor’s degree that carries 300 ECTS credits.)

Taking into account the doctoral student activity report, the academic committee may propose measures that complement those specified in the regulations and which result in doctoral students who do not meet the specified requirements being excluded from the programme.

For the doctoral programme in Marine Sciences, decisions concerning any bridging courses required will be based on the recommendations of tutors, with the approval of the interuniversity committee for the programme. Every effort will be made to ensure that students admitted from the interuniversity master's degree in Marine Science: Oceanography and Marine Management (a joint UB-UPC programme) or similar degrees are not required to take any bridging courses.

When a student's academic background leads their tutor to conclude that additional training is needed, the student concerned will be required to complete credits based on the joint master’s degree in Marine Science: Oceanography and Marine Management. As a general rule, tutors will select specialisation modules from the master’s programme that provide added value for the student’s training. For example, students admitted to the doctoral programme in Marine Sciences who have gaps in their knowledge of chemistry or engineering will be recommended to complete the corresponding training modules.

Enrolment period for new doctoral students

From around mid-September to mid-October of each academic year.

February (extraordinary enrolment), mainly for students awaiting visas and/or grants

Monitoring and evaluation of the doctoral student

Procedure for the preparation and defense of the research plan

Doctoral candidates must submit a research plan, which will be included in their doctoral student activity report, before the end of the first year. The plan may be improved over the course of the doctoral degree. It must be endorsed by the tutor and the supervisor, and it must include the method that is to be followed and the aims of the research.

At least one of these annual assessments will include a public presentation and defence of the research plan and work done before a committee composed of three doctoral degree holders, which will be conducted in the manner determined by each academic committee. The examination committee awards a Pass or Fail mark. A Pass mark is a prerequisite for continuing on the doctoral programme. Doctoral candidates awarded a Fail mark must submit a new research plan for assessment by the academic committee of the doctoral programme within six months.

The committee assesses the research plan every year, in addition to all of the other activities in the doctoral student activity report. Doctoral candidates who are awarded two consecutive Fail marks for the research plan will be obliged to definitely withdraw from the programme.

If they change the subject of their thesis, they must submit a new research plan.

Procedure for assignment of tutor and thesis director

The academic committee of the doctoral programme assigns a thesis supervisor to each doctoral candidate when they are admitted or enrol for the first time, taking account of the thesis supervision commitment referred to in the admission decision.

The thesis supervisor will ensure that training activities carried out by the doctoral candidate are coherent and suitable, and that the topic of the candidate’s doctoral thesis will have an impact and make a novel contribution to knowledge in the relevant field. The thesis supervisor will also guide the doctoral candidate in planning the thesis and, if necessary, tailoring it to any other projects or activities undertaken. The thesis supervisor will generally be a UPC professor or researcher who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience. This includes PhD-holding staff at associated schools (as determined by the Governing Council) and UPC-affiliated research institutes (in accordance with corresponding collaboration and affiliation agreements). When thesis supervisors are UPC staff members, they also act as the doctoral candidate’s tutor.

PhD holders who do not meet these criteria (as a result of their contractual relationship or the nature of the institution to which they are attached) must be approved by the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee in order to participate in a doctoral programme as researchers with documented research experience.

The academic committee of the doctoral programme may approve the appointment of a PhD-holding expert who is not a UPC staff member as a candidate’s thesis supervisor. In such cases, the prior authorisation of the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee is required. A UPC staff member who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience must also be proposed to act as a co-supervisor, or as the doctoral candidate’s tutor if one has not been assigned.

A thesis supervisor may step down from this role if there are justified reasons (recognised as valid by the committee) for doing so. If this occurs, the academic committee of the doctoral programme will assign the doctoral candidate a new thesis supervisor.

Provided there are justified reasons for doing so, and after hearing any relevant input from the doctoral candidate, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may assign a new thesis supervisor at any time during the period of doctoral study.

If there are academic reasons for doing so (an interdisciplinary topic, joint or international programmes, etc.) and the academic committee of the programme gives its approval, an additional thesis supervisor may be assigned. Supervisors and co-supervisors have the same responsibilities and academic recognition.

The maximum number of supervisors of a doctoral thesis is two: a supervisor and a co-supervisor.

For theses carried out under a cotutelle agreement or as part of an Industrial Doctorate, if necessary and if the agreement foresees it this maximum number of supervisors may not apply. This notwithstanding, the maximum number of supervisors belonging to the UPC is two.

Permanence

The academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year for full-time doctoral candidates who have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, in the terms outlined in the Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. In the case of part-time candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

International Mention

The doctoral degree certificate may include International Doctorate mention. In this case, the doctoral candidate must meet the following requirements:

a) During the period of study leading to the award of the doctoral degree, the doctoral candidate must have spent at least three months at a respected higher education institution or research centre outside Spain to complete courses or do research work. The stays and activities carried out must be endorsed by the thesis supervisor and authorised by the academic committee of the programme. The candidate must provide a certifying document issued by the person responsible for the research group of the body or bodies where the stay or activity was completed. This information will be added to the doctoral student’s activity report.
b) Part of the thesis (at least the summary and conclusions) must be written and presented in one of the languages commonly used for science communication in the relevant field of knowledge, which must not be an official language of Spain. This rule does not apply to stays and reports in Spanish or to experts from Spanish-speaking countries.
c) At least two PhD-holding experts belonging to a higher education institution or research centre outside Spain must have issued officially certified reports on the thesis.
d) The thesis examination committee must have included at least one PhD-holding expert from a higher education or research institution outside Spain who was not responsible for the candidate’s stay abroad (point a) above).
e) The thesis defence must have taken place on UPC premises or, in the case of joint programmes, at the location specified in the collaboration agreement.

Learning resources

Resources are made available to the interuniversity doctoral programme in Marine Sciences by the two institutions involved (the UPC and the UB) and other collaborating institutions, including the CSIC centres in Catalonia that support the programme. Students therefore have access to:

• Research equipment for use in the field/at sea and in the laboratory, which constitutes one of the most powerful arrays of technical-scientific infrastructure in Spain for conducting marine science research.

Equipment available to doctoral students includes:

• Maritime Research and Experimentation Wave Flume (CIEM)

• Network of Oceanographic and Meteorological Instruments (XIOM)

• Pool of mooring instrumentation (UB)

• Laboratories of the Department of Agri-Food Engineering and Biotechnology (UPC)

• Laboratories of the Department of Ecology (Faculty of Biology, UB)

• Laboratories of the Department of Stratigraphy, Palaeontology and Marine Geosciences (Faculty of Geology, UB)

• Laboratories of the Blanes Centre for Advanced Studies (CSIC)

• Laboratories of the Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (CSIC)

• Laboratories of the Institute of Marine Sciences (CSIC)

• Laboratories of the Institute for Advanced Chemistry of Catalonia.

• Access to oceanographic vessels of the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO), the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), and the Geological and Mining Survey of Argentina (SEGEMAR), and to medium and small vessels of the Government of Catalonia, the UB, the UPC and private operators, as well as oceanographic and drilling vessels operated by other countries.

• CEAB oceanographic buoy.

• Numerical facilities, including various models developed by participating research groups and the libraries and machine resources of the institutions involved and programme partners. A particularly valuable resource that students have access to is the Barcelona Supercomputing Center and the recently upgraded MareNostrum supercomputer.

• Specific software for processing and visualisation of large volumes of data under licence (UB, UPC and collaborating institutions).

• Students also have access to the libraries of the two universities and partner organisations. Through the UB’s Learning and Research Resources Centre (CRAI) and the University Union Catalogue of Catalonia (CCUC), students have online access to all of the collections held by the University Libraries Consortium of Catalonia (CBUC), which include over nine million documents. In addition, for their specific work, students have access to documents held by the research groups involved in the doctoral programme, including reports, maps and other types of documents that fall under the rubric of “grey” literature, which is often needed to conduct research work in an efficient manner. All of these resources make it even easier for students to focus and develop their thesis.

    Thesis abstract: It was not until 1982 that Goosta Walin proposed a formal framework to connect heat input from the sun to the large-scale thermal circulation of the ocean through quantifying a sur- face ¿drift¿ of water from high to low temperatures. That seminal work laid the foundations of a new field of oceanography dedicated to inferring oceanic circulation patterns through dynamics at the air-sea interface and the surface-ocean state. Ocean circulation is initiated and controlled not only by temperature but also salinity; together acting to set the density or thermohaline circulation of the ocean. Furthermore, The action of winds on the ocean surface induce thermal changes in the sea surface state, and it is these changes in sea surface state that are captured by the framework. Along those lines, later work has attempted to build a buoyancy-based framework to infer large-scale circulation resulting from surface buoyancy dynamics. To do this, a knowledge of both heat flux (HF) (composed of latent, sensible, shortwave and longwave components) and freshwater flux (FWF) (the difference between evaporation and precipitation) are needed. Bulk formulas are normally employed to quantify these fluxes; however, atmospheric parameters needed for their use are often dicult to retrieve. Therefore, a further update to the framework was made: rather than thermodynamically, this new framework is based on kinematics and was derived using the conservation equation for ocean physics. Water masses are large volumes of water with common characteristic formation histories as well as tracer properties; such as temperature, salinity and density. The ocean can be subdivided into many water types; each with their own characteristic properties. These water types interact with each other and are inevitably subducted into the quasi-conservative regime of the interior-ocean. This connects the aforementioned frameworks to climate dy- namics as these water masses are often crucial areas for sequestering and, therefore, slowing down the effect of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions on climate extremes. This thesis represents the amalgamation of three works; firstly, the feasibility of satellites to provide thermodynamic water mass estimates is provided along with an analysis of the propagation of errors from satellite-retrievals of Sea Surface Temperature (SST) and Sea Surface Salinity (SSS) to uncertainties in estimates on the location of water mass subduc- tion/formation; the second paper is a modification of the kinematic framework in the presence of the Mixed Layer Depth (MLD) and in doing so connects surface and mixed layer (ML) kinematics and air-sea interactions to ventilation below the ML via water mass formation; the third work represents a preliminary draft of the application of the kinematic framework (from the second paper) to assess seasonality in Atlantic dense-water formation over 10 years. We found that the kinematic approach applied to satellite datasets combined with in-situ derived estimates for Mixed Layer Depth (MLD) resulted in a greater resolution of mesoscale activity than the same satellite datasets used in the thermodynamic approach; with satellite derived HF and FWF. On the other hand, the assumption of a homogeneous ML had the consequence of neglecting the depth-penetrative effect of shortwave solar radiation which could adversely impact quantitative estimates of watermass formation. We show that within the kinematic framework, satellite sea surface data can reveal the interaction between air-sea fluxes, mesoscale dynamics and water mass formation on large- scale ocean circulation and thus, reveal crucial climate dynamics in a routine and relatively computationally efficient way.

Quality

The Validation, Monitoring, Modification and Accreditation Framework (VSMA Framework) for official degrees ties the quality assurance processes (validation, monitoring, modification and accreditation) carried out over the lifetime of a course to two objectives—the goal of establishing coherent links between these processes, and that of achieving greater efficiency in their management—all with the overarching aim of improving programmes.
