We would like to advertize the 8th workshop of the Group for Aquatic
Primary Productivity (GAP) that will be held from 30 March through 8
April, 2008 on the shores of the Red Sea at Eilat (Israel). Please
visit our website www.gap-aquatic.org
to get more information.
Welcome to GAP VIII!
Accurate determination of the levels of Gross Primary Production,
Respiration and other loss processes in aquatic environments are
fundamental for understanding the functioning of these ecosystems. The
need for progress in this field has become increasingly evident with the
realization of the complex impact of global warming on these
ecosystems. We are delighted to host the upcoming GAP meeting on the
serene shores of the Red Sea at Eilat.
The seminar will be hosted by the Inter University Institute
for Marine Sciences at Eilat (IUI). The proximity of IUI to both a reef
and oligotrophic open-ocean environment provides a convenient study site
for ongoing experiments and simulations. IUI has educational facilities
including lecture rooms, teaching laboratories, and boarding facilities
which make this an exceptional site for a productive seminar in a
relaxed, beautiful setting. During the meeting several field trips will
be organized for a taste of the area's treasures.
We hope you can join us for some great experiments and a productive seminar.
