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.
News for 2021
The workshop at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada) has been postponed by one more year due to COVID.
Therefore, we decided to have a series of online sessions on selected topics during this summer.
The sessions have a maximum length of two hours and consist of a few presentations and time for discussion.
The video seminar will be held on Zoom. There is no registration required.

- 1st of June, Cyanobacteria in lake Models (envisaged)

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.
