The XV International Estuarine Biogeochemistry Symposium (IEBS 2019) will be held in Vigo (Galicia, Spain) for the first time.

Galicia hosts a large number of rias, estuarine systems formed by flooding of former river valleys in the Preistocene-Holonce during the last interglacial transgression.

The IEBS 2019 will cover the wide diversity of estuarine and bays, regarding their morphology, geographic location, climate conditions, and anthropogenic pressure.

Studies deadling

Current changes in the land use and activities developed in coastal areas and the ever changing chemical compounds used in products for human consumption and/or industrial activities requires contemporary approaches for the monitoring and assessment of estuarine biogeochemical processes.

Within this context, at the XV International Estuarine Biogeochemistry Symposium (IEBS 2019) we welcome studies dealing with the sources, behavior and fate of nutrients, organic matter, and historical and emerging contaminants (trace elements, nanoparticles, organic compounds).

A specific session will be dedicated to the potential impact and/or interaction of microplastics on the biogeochemical processes.

See you at the XV International Estuarine Biogeochemistry Symposium (IEBS 2019)!
