Geomicrobiology Town Hall at The 2015 Goldschmidt Conference

Wednesday 19th August 17:00-19:00
Location: Club E

This event is for the geomicrobiology community to discuss the conclusions of two recent workshops held in Chicago, USA, and Beijing, China. The Chicago workshop was convened to review advances made in the last 15 years, infrastructure that has made these advances possible, emerging approaches that hold promise to yield major breakthroughs, and grand challenges ahead in the field. The China workshop focused on current understandings of microbial extracellular electron transfer with minerals as electron sources and sinks (MEETS) and key science questions and hypotheses for MEETS research. This town hall meeting will begin with two presentations summarizing the workshops, followed by time for comments and discussion on conclusions and the potential for international research collaborations.

Last call - Symposium "Observing Ecosystem Transition"

Understanding ecosystem transitions is more important than ever and critical zone observatories shall contribute to this issue. The Symposium "Observing Ecosystem Transition" (28 - 29 September 2015) will discuss regime shifts during ecosystem succession and the role of critical zone observatories. The conference will take place at the Brandenburg University of Technology in Cottbus (Germany) and includes an excursion to the Chicken Creek critical zone observatory.
