The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Ocean Mixing is aimed to create an inclusive environment in which graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education are encouraged to present and exchange new data and cutting-edge ideas. As such, the GRS provides a forum where junior scientists can present their work to their peers while the meeting facilitates constructive discussion to enhance community engagement and cross-disciplinary collaboration.
This meeting intends to not only focus on the fundamental understanding of ocean mixing processes, but also on the impact of ocean mixing processes on the larger scale climate system. This thus includes (but not limited to) the role of mixing processes for global ocean circulation, heat uptake, biogeochemistry, and the climate system. We therefore encourage junior scientists within and adjacent to the ocean mixing community to present their scientific advances from numerical, observational, and theoretical analyses across all time and spatial scales, and for any discipline. Attendees are therefore encouraged to consider the potential collaborations that may be initiated at this meeting, in particular those that are interdisciplinary.
The 2020 GRS on Ocean Mixing will be held the weekend immediately before the Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Ocean Mixing, both at the Southern New Hampshire University. The GRS is an ideal introduction to the GRC and participation in both meetings is highly recommended. The GRS format includes oral presentations by attending junior scientists, two poster sessions, social events in the evenings and dedicated time for discussion.
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 13, 2020. 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.
Gordon Research Seminars are 2-day meetings which take place on the Saturday and Sunday just prior to the start of the associated GRC. The GRS opens with a 1-hour introductory session on Saturday afternoon, followed by a poster session, dinner and a 2-hour session in the evening. Sunday morning begins with breakfast and is followed by another 2-hour session, a second poster session, and lunch. A final 1-hour session takes place just after lunch, and the associated GRC begins later that evening.
