Meeting Description

Overview

The Gordon Research Seminar on Ocean Biogeochemistry 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 2018 GRS on Ocean Biogeochemistry will highlight research being conducted by early career scientists at and between marine interfaces. Oral presentations, poster sessions, and open floor discussions will focus on biogeochemical fluxes between the atmosphere and the ocean; between the surface ocean, the mesopelagic zone, and abyssal depths; between the deep ocean, the seafloor and the sub-seafloor; between coastal and open ocean environments; and along meridional gradients. Science policy work relating to these topics will also be considered.

The GRS is open to graduate students and postdocs, providing a forum for early career scientists to engage in scientific discourse with their peers and build broader professional networks. The 2018 GRS will be held the weekend before the Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Ocean Biogeochemistry, on the campus of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) with excellent accommodations at the Conference Lodge on campus.

Application Instructions

The meeting 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 Chairs will select speakers from abstracts submitted by April 7, 2018. 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 Deadline section above.
