Physical Processes in Natural Waters Workshop 2016

The Proceedings from the 19th Physical Processes in Natural Waters Workshop can be found at the following link:

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. They look at the interactions with the physical and biogeochemical processes that control water quality, ecosystem functions, and the services these systems provide.

This year's workshop focuses on innovative measurements of turbulence and biogeochemical fluxes in lakes and other stratified waters. We also encourage contributions from all relevant subject areas .

We welcome Professor John Simpson, from Bangor University, as our keynote speaker.

The open workshop seeks to expand contacts with neighbouring fields such as physical oceanography, the atmospheric sciences, and engineering. With forty to sixty participants and a small number of invited speakers, the PPNW meetings combine an active workshop atmosphere with a comfortable timeframe for presentations and discussions.
