This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Biogenic Hydrocarbons and the Atmosphere brings together young professionals in biogenic hydrocarbon to present and discuss interdisciplinary research and exchange cutting-edge ideas in a casual and friendly environment among peers with comparable levels of experience.
Biogenic hydrocarbons exert significant impacts in ecosystem, atmosphere chemistry, and climate. In the context of the 20th anniversary of Gordon Research Conference on Biogenic Hydrocarbons and the Atmosphere, this GRS aims to explore hydrocarbon-atmosphere dynamics, with a focus on the production, interactions, and the roles of biogenic hydrocarbons in a changing climate. Drawing on research performed at multiple scales and through a variety of approaches, this seminar will provide young investigators an excellent opportunity to explore biogenic hydrocarbon research outside of their expertise, as well as a "breaking-the-ice" opportunity prior to the Gordon Research Conference.
