Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.

Meeting Description

Chemical Oceanography is a multidisciplinary science that integrates research across elements, environments, and platforms on a variety of space and time scales using a multitude of approaches. Themes highlighting the fundamentally interdisciplinary nature of the field have remained at the heart of the GRC in Chemical Oceanography for almost 50 years. The meeting in 2017 will advance these themes and highlight synthesis of multifaceted data in Chemical Oceanography. Highlights will include new methods of data collection, visualization, analysis, and modeling that allow novel insights and connections to be made in all phases of interdisciplinary work. Synthesizing data on multiple elements, with different chemical behaviors and controls allows us to understand key processes that the control the distributions of elements in seawater and marine sediments, as well as to understand how shifts in those distributions may reflect changes at the processes level. New advances in integration of a wide array of measurements on a variety of space and time scales allow scaling from detailed regional studies to global processes in the past, present, and future ocean and create an integrative understanding of Chemical Oceanography whose whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

The 2017 GRC will be preceded by a Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) in Chemical Oceanography that will be open to all graduate students and postdocs in Chemical Oceanography and related fields. The GRS provides a forum for early career researchers to present and discuss results from their research in a peer-to-peer setting in advance of the GRC.

Related Meeting

This GRC will be held in conjunction with the "Chemical Oceanography" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.
