PHYSICAL PROCESSES IN NATURAL WATERS WORKSHOP 2018
THEME: “PHYSICAL LIMNOLOGY IN A CHANGING WORLD”
August 20 – 24, 2018
Venue: Altes Spital
We are pleased to announce that the 21st International Workshop on Physical Processes in Natural Waters (PPNW2018) will be held in Solothurn, Switzerland. The workshop is co-hosted by University of Geneva and Eawag.
The PPNW workshops focus on the physics of inland and coastal water bodies and their interactions with the physical and biogeochemical processes that drive water quality and ecosystem functioning. The 21st workshop in Solothurn will pay special attention to the physics and functioning of freshwaters in light of global environmental change (eutrophication and climate change). We invite abstracts on topics addressing such changes in the context of physical-biogeochemical interactions, biogeochemical cycles, greenhouse gases and general limnology. PPNW is an open workshop, actively seeking to expand contact and collaboration with neighboring fields such as physical oceanography, atmospheric sciences, and engineering. With 40 to 60 participants and a small number of invited speakers, the PPNW meetings are characterized by their active workshop atmosphere and a comfortable time frame for presentations and discussion.
