The 13th International Symposium on Biogeochemistry of Wetlands will take place on March 22-25 2021, at the Hilton Baton Rouge Capitol Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA.
Wetland biogeochemistry is dynamic and involves cycling or exchange or flux of materials between living and non-living components of an ecosystem. Biogeochemistry is an interdisciplinary science which includes the study of interactive biological, geological and chemical processes regulating the fate and transport of nutrients and contaminants in soil, water and atmospheric components of an ecosystem. Biogeochemistry also provides a framework to integrate physical, chemical and biological processes functioning in an ecosystem at various spatial and temporal scales. This international symposium provides a framework for scientists to share technical information on various topics related to coupled biogeochemical cycling of macro-elements and associated organic and inorganic contaminants. The goal is to improve our understanding of the role wetlands perform in regulating and mitigating impacts of global climate change and sea level rise.
