With co-convenors Yoshiki Saito (Geological Survey of Japan/AIST), Wenhong Li (Duke University) and Ge Sun (USDA Forest Service), we are convening oral and poster sessions on "Impacts of Global Change on Deltas and Coastal Wetland Ecosystems: Scientific Advances in Support of Socioecological Resilience." The poster session is on Tuesday morning, Aug 16, in Moscone West. The oral session is Tuesday afternoon, 1:40-3:40, in Moscone West 3007. We had a good number of very interesting abstracts submitted to the session. The oral talks were chosen to span both a range of delta and wetland systems (Wax Lake, Mekong, Yellow, Ganges-Brahmaputra), and techniques (field observations, numerical modeling, remote sensing). Looking forward to a great session!
