9th International Symposium

Geochemistry of the Earth’s Surface (GES-9)


June 3-7, 2011 (Friday-Tuesday)
Boulder, Colorado, USA
University Memorial Center, University of Colorado

Mark your calendar to join the triennial gathering of international researchers on geochemical processes operating at the Earth’s surface.  GES-9 will emphasize human interactions with geochemical processes at all spatial and temporal scales.   We strive to create a comfortable, friendly setting for presenting your research and learning about related work.  Most presentations will be in unhurried poster sessions adjoining the lecture hall.  In-depth presentations from invited speakers will synthesize recent work.  We will take a half-day for field trips to explore the local environments of the Colorado Front Range, including the Boulder Creek Critical Zone Observatory.  Student participation is encouraged, and partial support will be available to student presenters.  

The meeting is open to all working in Earth surface systems.  Planning is underway for sessions on critical zone processes, global geochemical cycles, rivers as integrators of landscape processes, environmental geochemistry, organic geochemistry, and nanoscale environments. 


Special events:

Thursday, June 2:  Icebreaker reception on the South Terrace of the University Memorial Center. Beer and wine may be served
