Please consider attending the upcoming Gordon Research Conference: Deep
Carbon Science in the Context of Geologic Time, June 17-22. This
conference will explore the evolution of deep carbon in Earth’s biological
and nonbiological reservoirs over 4.6 billion years. Topics include how
carbon is incorporated into a growing planet and how early planetary
processes mediate carbon transfers. We will then turn to the evolution of
carbon reservoirs in the first billion years of Earth history, and explore
early deep life, the population of terrestrial niches, the challenges that
were overcome, and the feedbacks and interactions between the geosphere and
the biosphere. The final phase of the conference will address the carbon
cycle and how it has evolved through time. A goal of the conference is to
engage a diverse and interdisciplinary group of Earth scientists, planetary
scientists, and geobiologists.
Attendees will include a mix of leading junior and senior scientists. The
conference will provide opportunities for junior scientists to present
their work in poster format and exchange ideas with leaders in the field.
In addition to programmed discussion sessions, Gordon Conferences provide a
collegial, open atmosphere, and opportunities for informal gatherings in
the afternoons, evenings and during meals. They are ideal for scientists
from different disciplines to initiate cross-disciplinary collaborations in
the various research areas represented.
We anticipate that there will be some funds to assist with travel and
registration fees for select students.

Attendance is limited, so early registrations are encouraged.
Hope to see you at the conference,
Craig Manning, Isabelle Daniel, Kai-Uwe Hinrichs, Ed Young
