Workshop Details
Biogeochemical Processes of the Iron Cycle: From Microbes to Minerals
07/28/2010 - 07/31/2010
Meeting Description:

Iron oxides are ubiquitous in natural environments and govern dissolved concentrations of both contaminants and nutrients. Microorganisms indigenous to soils and sediments induce iron mineral transformations and, as a consequent, dramatic impacts on elemental cycles critical to life. Within this workshop we will present recent findings and explore the ecology of iron transforming organisms, iron-altering bacterial architecture, and the biogeochemical processes of iron cycling. As a capstone to the workshop, we will evaluate contaminant/nutrient-iron mineral interactions and implications deduced from advances in our understanding of iron cycling.


FYI some general info about housing:
TSRC offers a wide range of lodging options. Single bedroom
accommodations with kitchen start at $675/week, and 2- and 3-bedroom condos start at $970 and $1160/week,
respectively. Some condos have 2 beds per bedroom, or also have a loft, which may be a good option for students and postdocs or anyone looking to save money. Condos range from Basic or Value to Luxury depending upon your preferences. TSRC also offers excellent hotel rooms through Camel's Garden Hotel and Ice House, with daily maid-service and other hotel style amenities.

If you wish to share a condo with one or more other TSRC participants, you should work this out in advance of registering. In particular, one person should be designated as the head roommate. The person chosen head
roommate must register first as the head roommate. Then the other roommates register, indicating the name of the head roommate. If you need email addresses of the other invited participants, contact your workshop organizer.
