Aims and Format of the Workshop

World Café 1:    Hosts: Raoul Couture, Hans Dürr, Bill Taylor, Bruce MacVicar, Kevin Stevens, Lingling Wu

14:30-15:30       Question 1: What are unique and groundbreaking opportunities for environmental science and technology in the TGR basin?

Keywords: nutrients (N, P, K, Si, S), micronutrients, pollutants, non-point sources, nutrient abatement, soil conservation, crop management, ecosystem services, land-water interactions, littoral zone, science-based resource management, …

15:30-16:00       Coffee break

16:00-17:00       Question 2: What data and information are needed to build a predictive understanding of nutrient cycling and their ecological impacts in the TGR basin?

Keywords: sources, system properties, hydrological forcings, land management, biogeochemical processes, trophic interactions, nutrient fluxes and ratios, spatial and temporal scales, ecosystem responses, …

17:00-18:00   Reception (Arts Lecture Hall)

 

Wednesday August 8


Workshop Part 2 (only for registered workshop participants)

Morning

09:00-09:15       Dr. Qiuwen Chen, Chinese Academy of Sciences

09:15-09:30       Reports from World Café 1

World Café 2:    Hosts: Sheree Pagsuyoin, Nandita Basu, Derek Robinson, Robin Johnston, Fereidoun Rezanezhad, Zhengwen Liu

09:30-10:45       Question 3: What should be the scope and scale of nutrient modeling in the TGR basin? What diagnostic and prognostic capabilities do we want to develop? What scientific questions do we want to answer? What practical issues can we address?

10:45-11:00       Coffee break

World Café 3:    Hosts: Rebecca Rooney, Ana Lima, David O’Connell, Chris Parsons, Kristin Mueller, Merrin Macrae

11:00-12:15       Question 4: What should be the priorities of a field research program in support of the modeling efforts discussed in Question 3? What are our collective capabilities in relevant areas of field and experimental research? Are we missing some capabilities? Provide priorities at short- (1 year), medium (1-3 years) and long-term (> 3 years).
