Gordon Research Conference and Seminar on Polar Marine Science

9 March 2013 @ 8h00 - 15 March 2013 @ 18h00

Gordon Research Conference and Seminar on Polar Marine Science 
Dates: 9-15 March 2013
Location: Ventura, CA, USA


Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Polar Marine Science for graduate students and postdocs, highlighting the high latitude physical, chemical, and biological processes and their impact on regional and global systems, and the Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Polar Marine Science, linking polar observations, processes and models at regional and global scales. 

The GRS and the GRC will happen in March 2013, in Ventura (CA): 
– the GRS on 9 – 10, chaired by Jeff Bowman (USA) and Marie Seguret (USA),
– the GRC follows10 – 15, chaired by Christine Michel (Canada) and Paul Wassman (Norway).

The program descriptions and registration are available at:

Some funding will be available for graduate students and postdocs attending both the GRS and GRC.
