SBI Hosting Intern
year more than 25 undergraduates will work in the field and in OSU
laboratories on projects related to the subsurface biosphere. This is
the sixth year of a paid internship
that gives students first-hand experiences studying microbes that live
underground in soils, sediments and groundwater.
The SBI Undergraduate Intern
Poster Session is Thursday, September 1,
2:30-4:30, MU 109. Save the date
for this rewarding session where SBI interns share their summer
Friday, August 5 - Saturday, August 6. Oregon
Society of Soil Scientists Klamath County Tour.
Join us as
we traipse about Klamath County and learn about restoration in the
Sprague River, peat wetlands adjacent Agency Lake, diatomaceous
materials in meadows and marshes, Klamath County history, and a soil in
the Mt. Thielsen Wilderness Area that is not to be missed! More details
and register online at http://www.oregonsoils.org
at Sun Mountain Ranch, Fort Klamath, OR.
September 11 - Friday, September 16.
International Symposium of Subsurface Microbiology. Abstracts
due May 14, 2011. Held at Bavarian Alps (Garmisch-Partenkirchen).
Tuesday, September 13 - Wednesday, September 14. 2nd
Annual Pacific Northwest Climate Science Conference. The
conference, sponsored by PNW research institutions and federal and
state government agencies, aims to stimulate a place-based (rather than
discipline-based) exchange of information about emerging climate,
climate impacts, and climate adaptation science in the PNW. The
conference will also include time for presentation of emerging policy
and management goals, objectives, and information needs related to
climate impacts and adaptation. Held at Seattle, WA.
September 14 - Friday, September 16. BioMicroWorld
2011. A conference focused on environmental, industrial and
applied microbiology. Abstracts due June 9, 2011. Held at Malaga,
