First Open GAIM Science Conference

The first Global Analysis, Interpretation, and Modelling (GAIM) Science Conference of the International Geosphere Biosphere Program (IGBP) will be held Sept. 24-29, 1995 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. The Science Conference will focus on papers in the areas of global data analysis and assessment, modelling of biogeochemical systems and their relationship to physical climate and hydrologic systems, and interpretation of current trends as indicated by global databases and model results for extrapolation with regard to future global change. The new and continued research directions which arise from these results should eventually lead to answers regarding the measurement, causes and consequences of natural and anthropogenic global change factors.

Abstracts are solicited from all interested scientists conducting relevant research. Abstracts are due by May 1, 1995; abstract format information is available from the GAIM Task Force Office. Presentations may be in oral, poster or video poster format. Oral and poster session topics will be grouped by time periods, including "Paleo" <20k years), "Historical" (<2000 years), "Contemporary" (<20 years), and "Future". Morning sessions will concentrate on measurements and data analysis, and afternoon sessions will focus on modelling. There will also be a special session on Global Systems Integration.
