2003 GSA Annual Meeting & Exposition


We are pleased to announce and solicit abstracts for a special session of coastal interest at this year's Geological Society of America Annual meeting, Nov. 2-5, 2003 in Seattle, WA. A detailed description of the session is provided below. We encourage you to participate in what promises to be an exciting and professionally enriching exchange of scientific ideas. The abstract deadline is midnight, July 15 PST. For more information and to submit an abstract, please visit: http://www.geosociety.org/meetings/2003/

Coastal Processes and Hazards Along Active Margin and Low Latitude Coasts (Session T77)

The processes operating on active margin and low latitude coasts are significantly different than those at work on trailing edge, mid-latitude coasts. For example, the U.S. west coast is characterized by features such as pocket beaches, rocky headlands, seacliffs, and marine terraces. Wave action and nearshore currents result in changes to beach volume and morphology, while a combination of waves, currents and rainfall drive the retreat of seacliffs and the development of large coastal landslides. In addition, tsunamis, earthquakes, and climate oscillations that affect severe weather patterns, have dramatic coastal impacts and present serious hazards to communities and coastal resources.

Low latitude coasts also pose challenges as they are frequently low-lying and characterized by fragile coral reef systems. Such coasts are susceptible to slight changes in sea level, and can be significantly impacted by tsunamis and hurricanes. In addition, recovery of the nearshore-beach system after such events is slow due to the sediment-limited nature of low latitude coasts. Recently developed techniques for monitoring and analyzing coastal processes and hazards such as bathymetric and topographic lidar (light imaging and ranging), hyperspectral remote sensing, and new field survey techniques are expanding our understanding of active margin and low latitude coasts. A ession which brings together researchers who are working to understand the dynamics and hazards of coastal systems on active margin and low latitude coasts will further our efforts to understand these systems.

If you have any questions regarding the session or the abstract submission process, please contact Dr. Cheryl Hapke (chapke@usgs.gov) or Dr. Laura Moore (laura.moore@oberlin.edu) - Laura J. Moore, Ph.D. - Assistant Professor - Geology Department - Oberlin College - 52 West Lorain Street - Oberlin, OH 44074 - Phone: 440-775-8351 - Fax: 440-775-8038.

Third Reefs Conference at Raglan, New Zealand


The Third International Artificial Surfing Reefs Conference is being held at Raglan, New Zealand on June 23-25 this year. It is not too late to enroll to attend this essential conference dealing with offshore reefs for coastal protection and amenity. The theme is "Unifying Amenity, Ecology and Coastal Protection". So there is no better forum for people interested in using, understanding or learning about this important method to protect our coasts. The conference wants all disciplines to attend and accepts papers related to offshore reefs on surfing, coastal protection, ecology, construction, planning, economics, sustainability indicators, ICZM and legal.

As some of you can't make the long trip, the committee has decided to accept papers in absentia to unify worldwide studies in a single proceedings. That is, your paper will be presented at the conference by a nominee and the paper will appear in the published proceedings and on the web site. This gives you the chance to get your work in print while saving lots of money and time! So even if you can't come, make sure you send your abstract and paper. To cover costs, the "absentia" conference fees will be half of the full fees - i.e. $NZ 350 for non-students and $NZ 135 for students. Please reply to conference@asrltd.co.nz as soon as possible.

CURSO DE BIOQUÍMICA DE WETLANDS


The Soil and Water Science Institute within the Soil and Water Science Department, University of Florida-IFAS plans to offer as short course on entitled " Biogeochemistry of Wetlands: Science and Applications" scheduled for October 13-15, 2003. The course is designed for environmental professionals and managers interested in management and restoration of wetlands. Details and a printable PDF file of each course brochure are posted on the Institute web site.

Also, could you please help me by forwarding this web link to your colleagues and associates who may also be interested in this Short Course? We appreciate any additional assistance you can provide with getting the word out.

If you have any questions or need further information, feel free to contact me personally. Meanwhile, I look forward to see you at upcoming conferences.

International Summer Course on CZM


Advanced Training Course International Summer Course On Coastal Zone Management In the Atlantic Coast

1 – 6, September 2003, Faculty of Engineering, Porto, Portugal

The main objectives of the summer course are to further advanced education in topics at the forefront of scientific and technological development in Europe, and to improve the communication between students and experienced scientists on a European level. The lectures will be established by scientists from Europe and abroad with an excellent reputation in their specific field.

The course is open to graduate and post-graduate (MSc and PhD) involved in active research who are well qualified, have a basic knowledge of the specific course topic, and wish to receive a specialized training for their future work.

It is structured into formal lectures, presentation of study cases and a one-day practical field case and will also give the opportunity to informal discussions with the experts. The course could be partially sponsored to decrease the costs of participation. Travel to and from the place of venue is in the responsibility of each participant and will not be sponsored. The maximum number of participants will be 24. The certificate of presence will be delivered against the presence in at least 90% of the course, including the field study work. The final selection will be also concluded against the full payment of the registration fee before 2 April 2003. Participants are invited to present during the course their last scientific work in the poster form.

The Faculty of Engineering of Porto informs that we are able to conduct PhD programs in the Coastal Zone area. Those who are interested in these types of programs should send a letter applying for it.

CURSO DE ESPECIALIZAÇÃO EM OCEANOGRAFIA OFERECIDO PELA UNIVERSIDADE ESTADUAL DE SANTA CRUZ (ILHÉUS - BA).


Apresentação

Nos últimos anos, a utilização dos oceanos vem crescendo rapidamente, estendendo-se da pesca e do transporte, usos tradicionais, para a exploração de recursos minerais, deposição de esgotos e atividades recreativas. Ao mesmo tempo, as mudanças ambientais causadas pelo homem atingem áreas cada vez mais amplas, e em menor tempo. O gerenciamento de atividades como estas demanda uma visão global do ambiente marinho.

Devido a sua localização nas proximidades do litoral, uma das vocações naturais da UESC é certamente o estudo dos oceanos. Neste contexto, o Núcleo de Estudos Oceanográficos vem implementar o curso de Especialização em Oceanografia. O curso oferece disciplinas nas áreas de química, física, geologia e biologia, com o intuito de fornecer uma visão integrada da oceanografia, e como subsídio para o gerenciamento costeiro. Consideramos que o conhecimento do ambiente marinho possibilitará aos alunos uma atuação profissional mais efetiva no futuro, seja qual for a sua área de trabalho.

Objetivos

- Capacitar profissionais a atuarem na realização de estudos ambientais em regiões costeiras
- Promover a divulgação e a atualização de conhecimentos na área de oceanografia, visando a formação de agentes multiplicadores
- Conscientizar da importância da utilização racional destes ambientes

Clientela

Profissionais graduados em Oceanografia, Biologia, Geografia, Geologia, Química, Física, e áreas afins, atuantes em Órgãos públicos de controle e fiscalização ambiental, organizações não governamentais, atividades de ensino, atividades de turismo e exploração dos recursos naturais e aqueles com interesse na área de oceanografia.
