Getting ready for the Gordon Conference

We’re in the final throws of planning for the Gordon Research Conference on Catchment Science.  The last day to apply is in one week (May 28).  We have a great set of speakers, discussion leaders, and participants. This meeting promises to be stimulating and one that shouldn’t be missed!  The schedule is posted here:

The Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Catchment Science unites ecologists, hydrologists, geochemists, pedologists, and other scientists who understand the need for interdisciplinary
research to advance catchment science. Catchment science, conceptually rooted in the physical boundaries that define a catchment or watershed, is inherently integrative in terms of processes operating in catchments and disciplines involved in the study of catchments. As such, an interdisciplinary and international conference that brings together established and developing experts to share and integrate the scientific diversity of catchment science is needed to advance the holistic understanding of catchment systems.

Vice Chair:

The GRC will be preceded by a two-day Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) that is organized by and designed for graduate students and post-doctoral researchers. The GRS provides opportunities
for the exchange of ideas among early career investigators and an occasion to build relationships with peers that will form the next generation of catchment scientists.
