Catchment Science: Interactions of Hydrology, Biology and Geochemistry (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

Thresholds in Time and Space

Dates

June 13-14, 2015

Location

Proctor Academy
Andover, NH

Organizers

Chair:
Rachel S. Gabor

Associate Chair:
Ingo Heidbuechel

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Catchment Science: Interactions of Hydrology, Biology & Geochemistry is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

Observing, predicting, and understanding the consequences and feedbacks of environmental thresholds are crucial for predicting future changes in catchment systems across interacting hydrological, biological and geochemical processes. This GRS will focus on new research, including thresholds, early warning indicators, and resilience using long-term data, experimental studies, theory, and modeling approaches to study the behavior of catchments systems under changing conditions such as climate variability or land use/cover changes.

Related Meeting

This GRS was held in conjunction with the "Catchment Science: Interactions of Hydrology, Biology and Geochemistry" Gordon Research Conference (GRC). Refer to the associated GRC program page for more information.
