Corrosion - Aqueous (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

Multidisciplinary Approaches to Solving Global Corrosion Issues


July 9-10, 2016


Colby-Sawyer College
New London, NH


Matthew Asmussen & Lisa Rossrucker

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Corrosion - Aqueous is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The focus of this meeting is on novel approaches, ideas, techniques, and methods used to address today's pressing corrosion issues. This meeting brings together the future of the corrosion field to learn from one another, network and build connections that will serve to solve emerging global issues as their careers grow.
