Conference Description

A catchment (or watershed) is a fundamental landscape unit for understanding water quality and managing water resources. Contemporary environmental problems are being approached more than ever by stakeholders on the geographic basis of catchments, where the underlying physical, biological, and chemical science is complex. This Gordon Research Conference focuses on catchment science, exploring the interactions among hydrology, biology and geochemistry that shape terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. An understanding of ecosystem processes is required in order to consider responses of catchments and water chemistry to climate warming, atmospheric deposition, land use shifts and other drivers of environmental change. Participants typically include scientists who conduct research in hydrology, ecology, or biogeochemistry from colleges, universities, and agencies around the world. This conference began in 1991 with a focus on forested catchments, and was expanded in 2003 to consider all catchment types.

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.

Related Conference

This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "Catchment Science: Interactions of Hydrology, Biology & Geochemistry" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here.

What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
