Gonzalo Saldías Yau
Dr. Saldias is a Marine Biologist from the Universidad Católica de la Santísima Concepción. He holds a Master’s in Oceanography from the Universidad de Concepción and a Doctorate in Physical Oceanography from the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences, Oregon State University, United States.
Dr. Saldías’s research focuses mainly on coastal oceanography. He is a specialist in processing and analyzing high-resolution satellite information and in using autonomous underwater vehicles for observations of the coastal ocean. His research highlights the impact of fluvial plumes on coastal oceans in eastern boundary systems such as central and far southern Chile, the Iberian Peninsula, and Oregon, as well as the relationship between plumes and climate variability.

Carina Lange Mahn
Professor at the Department of Oceanography at the University of Concepcion and a researcher at the Research Center COPAS South-Austral Basal Program.
She has a degree in Biology from the University of Buenos Aires and a PhD in Biological Oceanography at the same university. She has been part of dozens of projects sponsored by Chilean and foreign institutions, and has participated in various scientific committees at national and international levels. Her areas of expertise include oceanography and paleoceanography (science that studies the history of oceans in the geologic past). Since 2006, is a member of the Capacity Building Task Team of Integrated Marine Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Research (IMBER).

Lorena Rebolledo Manríquez
Researcher in the Scientific Department of the Chilean Antarctic Institute (INACH).
Marine Biologist with a Major in Oceanography and Environmental Quality at the University of Concepcion. PhD in Oceanography at the same university. She did her postdoctoral fellow at the University Austral of Chile.
She studied oceanography of the Sub-Antarctic and Antarctic systems, the impacts of aquaculture on natural systems and geochemistry of marine and coastal sediments. She has also been dedicated to identifying marine diatoms (unicellular microscopic algae) in freshwater sediments as indicators of climate change. She was a member of the COPAS South-Austral Basal Program and is currently a researcher in the Scientific Department of INACH.
