The Oceans in the Earth System
International Conference and 97th Annual Meeting
of the Geologische Vereinigung e.V.
About two-thirds of the Earth’s surface is covered by water. The oceans interact extensively through exchange processes with the lithosphere, atmosphere and cryosphere as well as the biosphere. In addition, important transport processes are at work involving ocean circulation and material fluxes which determine the composition of ocean water. The oceans are subject to continuous change. Plate tectonic processes have had a direct effect on the oceans in the geological past, particularly with respect to biogeochemical and material budgets and ocean circulation.
The 2007 GV Conference in Bremen will offer a forum for overviews and new scientific results highlighting the crucial role of the ocean in the Earth system. Sessions will be composed of oral and poster presentations. In addition, short courses and workshops with specific themes will be offered, especially for young scientists. Child care will also be provided during the meeting.
Place and date
The International Conference and the 97th Annual Meeting 2007 of the Geologische Vereinigung will be held in Bremen, Germany, at the University Campus from Monday, October 1, to Friday, October 5, 2007.
