This workshop aims to develop the potential and practical integration and scaling of field, airborne remote sensing and gas flux measurements for ecological studies. You are warmly invited to participate in this excellent opportunity for knowledge exchange in a powerful and rapidly evolving field.
Biochar has emerged as a carbon mitigation option of potentially global significance. But many key questions remain to be addressed before we can be confident that biochar can be a major part of the move to a sustainable zero-carbon economy.
The 2009 Geological Society of London Fermor Meeting and field trip focussing on the formation, configuration and break-up of Rodinia. Contributions ranging from geochronology, geochemistry and palaeomagnetism to geodynamic modelling are welcomed. The meeting will be hosted in Edinburgh from 6-9 September 2009, followed by a 4 day field trip to see some fabulous and classic geology in the beautiful western Highlands of Scotland. Places for the field trip will be limited and on a first come first served basis so early registration is highly recommended!
As we look in to mark the centenary of the teaching of Geography in the University of Edinburgh, it is appropriate that we take some account of the events that have marked the 100 years since its first formal establishment in Edinburgh.
The key goals of this symposium are to explore what happens when fixed and fluid imaginings of borders coincide and to examine the consequences of the coexistence of pressures for breaking down boundaries alongside the simultaneous defence of a world defined and divided by differences.
This conference will provide information to those wanting to learn more about the process of implementing and managing sustainable carbon sequestration projects in tropical developing countries. Issues of risk, permanence, governance and methodologies for carbon sink analysis will be covered in the programme.
Celebrating the official launch of the two-year Project with a brief series of presentations and displays drawing on the experiences of individuals involved, together with external experts, to explain the importance of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society’s collections and the value of this project.
The Symposium will be held Monday July 16th in the School of GeoSciences, King's Buildings, University of Edinburgh. Talks will be given by his alumni and friends. The Symposium is open and registration (for estimated numbers) is free.
This one day symposium is devoted to dialogue on the possibilities,
potential, and perils of religion in the public realm. Speakers will
explore the implications and importance of religion for a diverse range
of issues, including: development, identity, democracy, well being,
exclusion, and daily life. Through this dialogue, we hope to open a
discussion about how to theorize and understand the multi-faceted
role of religion in the public realm.
Booking: Booking is required as space is limited. Please book with Robert Groves (tel:).
The 16th annual Graduate School Conference, this year at the Ben Wyvis Hotel, Strathpeffer, will be a valuable forum for GeoSciences postgraduates to meet and interact with members of staff and industry.
