NSF-MARGINS workshop: Towards Integration and Synthesis of MARGINS S2S Research in PNG and NZ Focus Areas.
The NSF-MARGINS Source-to-Sink (S2S) program will hold a workshop April 5-9, 2009 in Gisborne, New Zealand, for approximately 60 scientists. Research in the two S2S focus areas of PNG and NZ has reached a critical stage where integration and synthesis of results is now possible. This workshop represents the first opportunity for the two working groups to begin the process of integrating results and placing them in a broader context for conceptual and numerical model development. This integration and synthesis workshop aims to recognize and document important linkages between segments of the dispersal systems, as well as outstanding gaps that need to be understood to bring the overall S2S effort to fruition. The timing of the workshop should stimulate the development of integrative proposals and enables S2S researchers to respond to the broader MARGINS 10-year planning effort, to identify important future directions for S2S research.
NIWA is part of the organising committee for this event.
