Susquehanna Water Science Forum October 7-8, Call For Abstracts, Student Posters

The Susquehanna River Basin Commission will host the first-ever Susquehanna Water Science Forum on October 7-8 at the Radisson Hotel in Harrisburg.
The Forum will bring together researchers and water resource managers to share current water resource research, prioritize research needs and better coordinate research activities in the Susquehanna River Basin. Public and private interests will focus on applied research in aquatic ecosystem management, providing a catalyst for continued coordination and development.
All interested parties, including professionals and students, are invited to submit an abstract to present a paper.  Students also can submit a poster.  Abstracts and posters should address these questions--
-- What are the greatest threats (stressors) to the integrity of aquatic ecosystems?
-- How do we evaluate the effects of stressors on aquatic ecosystems (watersheds)?
-- How can water manager balance competing uses to ensure long-term sustainability of the basin’s water resources, economy and ecosystem services?
-- How can water managers use science to achieve balanced policy and regulations?
Instructions on submitting abstracts and student posters, a tentative agenda and registration information are available at the Susquehanna Water Science Forum webpage.
