Dear colleagues:
We would like to draw your attention to a meeting session on*Watershed 
Management and Coral Reef Pollution* at the 12th International Coral 
Reef Symposium, which will be held 9-13 July, 2012, in Cairns, 
Queensland, Australia.  Please visit the conference website for more 
information: http://www.icrs2012.com/Default.htm. 

*Aim and Scope of this Mini-Symposia, 21a:*
This session is devoted to our understanding of the source, transport 
and effects of elevated sediment, nutrients, contaminants, and other 
land-based pollution (LBP), including the physical controls of LBP, 
physiological responses of reef taxa, management applications, and 
interactions among stressors. Summaries of current investigations, 
site-specific studies (be they point-sources or catchments like the 
GBR), and modeling results are all encouraged.  We are also particularly 
interested in lessons learned for reducing impacts and managing LBP, as 
well as lessons learned in eutrophication monitoring and assessment of 
temperate systems that can be applied to coral reef environments.

*Abstract Deadline: Saturday 1 October 2011 at 23:59 EDT*

Please submit your abstract to Mini-Symposia 21a via 
<http://www.agu.org/meetings/os06/>.  If you know of anyone who might be 
interested who might not receive this notice, please feel free to pass 
it along.  We are very excited about this session, and look forward to 
your participation.  If you have any questions, please feel free to 
contact us.

We hope to see you in Cairns!
