19th Physical Processes in Natural Waters Workshop

The University of Bath is pleased to announce it is hosting the 19th International Physical Processes in Natural Waters (PPNW) workshop.

The PPNW workshops explore the physics of lakes and coastal water bodies and their interactions with the physical and biogeochemical processes that control water quality, ecosystem functions, and the services these systems provide. In 2016, the workshop at Bath will have a specific focus on innovative measurements of turbulence and biogeochemical fluxes in lakes and other stratified waters, although contributions from all relevant subject areas are welcome. Event organizers are happy to have Professor John Simpson (Bangor University) as their keynote speaker this year. Read More...
