Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Chemical Oceanography 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.

The focus of this meeting is the nature of processes at interfaces across space and time, and how the rates and mechanisms of chemical reactions at interfaces can profoundly shape chemical oceanography, whether those interfaces be large-scale spatial boundaries (such as between water masses, biomes, or at air-sea and land-sea interfaces), smaller-scale transitions (such as between zones of different redox state in the water column or sediments), or micro-scale boundaries (such as at the interface between plankton and their aquatic medium or between mineral surfaces and seawater). While the GRS aims to mainly act as a forum for postdocs and graduate students to present and discuss their research with their peers in a GRC-type atmosphere, but in the absence of a more senior cadre, the early-career scientists serving as GRS chair and vice-chair will also invite a keynote speaker to discuss professional development issues of concern to junior members of the field.
