PPNW 2017 Workshop | Announcement

20th International Physical Processes in Natural Waters (PPNW) workshop

Dates: 21 - 25 August, 2017

Location: Hyytiälä Forestry Field Station, Finland  http://www.helsinki.fi/hyytiala/english/

University of Helsinki is pleased to announce it is hosting the 20th International Physical Processes in Natural Waters (PPNW) workshop.

The PPNW workshops explore the physics of lakes and coastal water bodies. In 2017, the workshop invites also researchers working on biogeochemical cycles, greenhouse gases and limnology. We encourage contributions from all relevant subject areas. The open workshop seeks to expand contacts with neighboring fields such as physical oceanography, the atmospheric sciences, and engineering. With limited number of participants and a small number of invited speakers, the PPNW meetings combine an active workshop atmosphere with a comfortable timeframe for presentations and intensive discussions.

Costs: Participants will need to cover their own flight and accommodation costs (ca. €110 per night for a single / € 100 for a shared room, including all meals and saunas, and a boreal dinner). Local travel costs (bus Helsinki-Hyytiälä-Helsinki) are funded by ICOS-Finland, but if your schedule does not match with the organized bus transport, you are asked to cover the local transport by yourself. You should plan your schedule to arrive in Helsinki on Mon 21 August in the afternoon and you can book your departure flights from Helsinki later than early Friday evening, 5 pm onwards.

Venue: Hyytiälä Forestry Field station, in short: we have organized several international workshops and summer schools here over the years. We always create a relaxing but inspiring spirit in the meetings. The closest entertainment (pubs etc.) are kilometers away, which guarantees that we are together all the time, but we have enough beer etc. in the station. The workshop also includes the excursion to the SMEAR II field station, which is an ICOS Class 1 atmospheric tall tower and ecosystem flux tower site (see http://www.atm.helsinki.fi/SMEAR/ and https://www.icos-ri.eu/ ).
