Greetings! We would like to invite you to join us and share your research in the upcoming conference in the Computational Methods in Water Resources (CMWR) at the University of Toronto, Canada, June 20 – 24, 2016 (http://cmwrconference.org/).  The abstract submission deadline is November 30, 2015. Please feel free to forward this email to anyone who might be interested.

Session title: Novel developments and data-integration in complex biogeochemical and hydrological process models

Hydrological, geochemical, and biological processes occur simultaneously and are intimately coupled in natural surface and subsurface systems. Therefore they jointly determine the chemical and microbial composition of surface and subsurface aquatic systems. Multi-component reactive transport modeling (RTM) has been developed for more than three decades and has become a valuable tool for understanding and predicting the complex process coupling. In parallel to that, with the advance of new technologies, increasingly large data sets from experimental and field studies have been collected. This session looks to bring together researchers who advance RTM through the development of new modeling approaches and techniques, and novel applications. This includes, for example, the integration of data and models that provide new insights into complex process coupling across scales, the incorporation of genomic and proteomic data into reactive transport formulation for microbial processes, and the integration of process-based reactive transport into models at the watershed, regional, to the global scales.

 

Sincerely,

Session conveners
