DGT Conference 2019
Venue: University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, Austria
DGT2019, the 6th conference on Diffusive Gradients in Thin Films will take place from 18th to 20th September 2019 at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna (BOKU).
DGT2019 will bring together scientists and students from various environmental science disciplines, spanning from aquatic chemistry, sediment biogeochemistry and water body monitoring to soil science, rhizosphere research and agronomy. Since its invention, diffusive gradients in thin films, along with associated techniques, has evolved into a highly versatile tool to study solutes in a multitude of environments. The success of the technique is based on its simple, but very well defined sampling strategy and a highly innovative and dedicated group of developers and users.
We are looking forward to hosting the thriving DGT community in Vienna for discussing the latest developments and research directions, for developing new project ideas and to meet colleagues and friends for spending some great days together.
The conference will include:
Interpreting DGT measurements: time-weighted average concentrations and mixture effects.
Prof. Jaume Puy, Universitat de Lleida, Spain
Session 1: DGT fundamentals and method advances
Field evaluation and in situ stress testing of the organic-diffusive gradients in thin-films passive sampler: quantification of known polar organic chemicals and semi-quantification of unknowns.
Prof. Charles S. Wong, University of Winnipeg, Canada
Session 2: Application of DGT in the aquatic environment (process oriented)
Application of DGT in Chinese reservoirs.
Prof. Bo Gao, China Institute of Water Resources and Hydropower Research, China
Session 3: Application of DGT in the terrestrial environment (process oriented)
What does DGT measure in soils: a (mostly) mechanistic perspective?
Dr. Niklas Lehto, Lincoln University, New Zealand
Session 4: DGT for routine monitoring and regulatory purposes
Keynote: Monitool: Strategies to enable the use of DGTs in a regulatory context.
Prof. Blánaid White, Dublin City University, Ireland
Online registration will be open from 01.12.2018 to 31.08.2019.
