TM8Meeting of Young Researchers in Earth Sciences - Conference Call
|Convener: Alex Whittaker|
Thu, 11 Apr, 19:00–20:00 / Room B3
Meetings of Young Researchers in Earth Science (MYRES) is a community-driven initiative aimed at promoting interdisciplinary research efforts among early-career scientists from across the world. MYRES V: The Sedimentary Record of Landscape Dynamics brought together a wide range of early-career geomorphologists, sedimentologists, stratigraphers, and geodynamicists interested in bridging Earth-surface and solid-Earth research in order to better understand the evolution of Earth’s environments over a range of temporal and spatial scales, and in response to a variety of tectonic and climatic forcing events.
MYRES V took place August 8-12, 2012, in Salt Lake City, Utah. The meeting was funded by NSF (EarthCube, Sedimentary Geology and Paleobiology, and Geomorphology and Land Use Dynamics programs) and the Society for Sedimentary Geology (SEPM) and brought 54 early-career scientists from the US and abroad together for five days of science discussions and community building.
Since 2004, biennial MYRES meetings have been proposed by self-organized groups of motivated early-career scientists. Meeting topics have been selected by online vote and represent a broad range of Earth-science topics. The next MYRES meeting will be held in 2014 and proposals for new interdisciplinary topics are being solicited [http://www.myres.org/]. We encourage any interested early-career researchers (customarily within 10 years of earning their PhD) to submit ideas for the 2014 conference.
