Workshop on Physical Processes in Natural Waters (PPNW)
The PPNW workshop explore the physics of lakes and coastal water bodies. They look at the interactions with
the physical and biogeochemical processes that control water quality, ecosystem functions, and the services
these systems provide.
The open workshop seeks to expand contacts with neighbouring fields such as physical oceanography, the
atmospheric sciences, and engineering. With forty to sixty participants and a small number of invited
speakers, the PPNW meetings combine an active workshop atmosphere with a comfortable timeframe for
presentations and discussions.
