The Gordon Research Seminar on Catchment Science: Interactions of Hydrology, Biology and 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.
Catchment science synthesizes local-scale observations of hydrological, biological and geochemical processes to frame the landscape-scale functioning of ecosystems, but the global diversity of catchments presents a challenge for the development of a unified conceptual framework. This weekend seminar will survey the major research disciplines in catchment sciences and highlight projects that explore the similarity of ecosystem processes across catchments, providing participants with the rudiments to fully engage in major themes presented at the Gordon Conference.
The seminar will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS, either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.
The seminar chair will select speakers from abstracts submitted by March 22, 2019. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Information section above.
