This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule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 distribution of turbulent mixing in the ocean affects the transport of heat, freshwater, dissolved gasses, nutrients and pollutants. In turn these influence or control biological productivity, air-sea exchanges, regional and global scale circulation patterns, local weather and future climate. The goal of the 2020 Ocean Mixing GRC is to bring together disparate groups to identify and describe critical elements of mixing physics that are most important in reducing the uncertainty in model predictions on all scales - spanning from rapid, small-scale dynamics to multi-decade, global impacts. We seek to bring together observational, theoretical, experimental, and numerical communities to develop new approaches to both advance our understanding and to tackle applied problems that have most societal relevance.
