Union College to Host Eleventh Mohawk Watershed Symposium on March 22nd

Reconnect with friends and colleagues working in the basin, and get up to speed with the latest developments in the watershed. The Geology Department at Union College will host the Eleventh Symposium on the physical aspects of the Mohawk Watershed in New York State. The meeting highlights recent and on-going work in the watershed during oral and poster presentations.

For full details read more here.

The day-long conference will be followed by a reception. We continue to place emphasis on poster presentations, which means a reduction in the number of slots of volunteered talks, and an increase the number of posters and the time for posters.  You can see summaries and abstracts volumes from previous meetings at the Main MWS website.


Fish, Floods, and a Five-year Plan. A theme this year is Infrastructure in the Watershed and how that infrastructure affects water quality and ecosystems.
