The Gordon Research Seminar on Ocean Biogeochemistry 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.
Our ocean is changing on multiple scales with increasing human-induced perturbation. Complex biogeochemical processes drive the ocean dynamics and are vital for ecosystem resilience. The 2022 Ocean Biogeochemistry GRS seeks fundamental and interdisciplinary biogeochemical research that are critical to foster a holistic understanding of our past, present and future oceans.
We invite early career scientists from around the world to join the community, present exciting research and provoke thoughts on key biogeochemical processes across spaces and time. We highly encourage young scientists from underrepresented countries or groups in the field to apply.
Oral presentations and posters will address, without being limited to, processes and climate feedbacks along vertical and horizontal gradients; carbon pumps in a changing ocean; elemental cycles mediated by marine organisms and viruses; and biogeochemistry in paleo- and future oceans.
The GRS will be held the weekend before the Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Ocean Biogeochemistry, in beautiful Castelldefels (30 min by train from Barcelona, Spain). We will also be joined by three great speakers and mentors who will provide career guidance for early career scientists throughout the seminar:
Sarah Fawcett (University of Cape Town, South Africa)
Sergio Vallina (Spanish Institute of Oceanography, Spain)
Susanne Neuer (Arizona State University, USA)
