2023 Chemical Oceanography (GRS)

July 15 July 16

Gordon Research Seminar
Chemical Tracers in the Sea

The Chemical Oceanography GRS provides a unique forum for young doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to present their work, discuss new methods, cutting edge ideas, and pre-published data, as well as to build collaborative relationships with their peers. Experienced mentors and trainee moderators will facilitate active participation in scientific discussion to allow all attendees to be engaged participants rather than spectators.

The theme of this Gordon Research Seminar is a tribute to Wallace “Wally” Broecker’s Tracers in the Sea. For this meeting we hope to focus on the development, verification and application of chemical tracers of ocean chemistry, biology and physics in the present and past, with an eye toward predicting those of the future. Processes of interest could include the changing circulation and ventilation of the oceans, the biological carbon pump including the sedimentary sink, major chemical inputs into the ocean, and internal transformations that impact the cycling of elements including rates. Talks will focus on the development of tracers including stable and radioactive isotopes, organic and inorganic molecules, analytical advances, and the application of these tracers towards improving our understanding of the “anthropocene”-, holocene-, and paleo-ocean. We welcome all chemical oceanography abstracts that engage creatively with this theme.

Venue: Southern New Hampshire University, 2500 North River Road, Manchester, NH, United States

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 17, 2023.
