Mini-Conference: Process understanding: from local measurements to catchment integration

The Mini-Conference will focus on process understanding of the carbon cycling during transport from land to the ocean. It will be held at the University of Uppsala (Sweden), in the frame of the ITN project C-CASCADES.

1 March 2016 - 2 March 2016
Sweden

The first Mini-Conference of C-CASCADES will cover the scientific work of Work Package 1 with focus on process understanding of the carbon cycling during transport from land to the ocean. Talks, discussions and exercises span from carbon cycling in headwaters and streams to the carbon cycling in lakes, rivers, and river mouths. Conceptual models of the aquatic carbon cycling will be developed, temporal changes in the carbon cycling in inland waters will be tracked with inland water inventory data, and research results of the participants will be presented and synthesized. A field excursion will bring insights into carbon measuring techniques. Invited speakers will guarantee presentations of up-to-date research results on the carbon cycling so that the participants get an overview over present knowns and unknowns in the carbon cycling.

The outcomes of this Mini-Conference will be:
1. To understand processes that influence the cycling of carbon in running waters and lakes
2. To develop conceptual models on carbon cycling during transport from land to sea
3. To analyse changes over time in aquatic carbon cycling and to determine the drivers
4. To differentiate between the cycling of CO2 and CH4 in inland waters
5. To critically evaluate published material on the carbon cycling
6. To improve written and oral communication skills
