Retrospective views on our planet's future
PAGES 3rd Open Science Meeting was held from 8-11 July 2009 at Oregon State University in Corvallis, USA. A Young Scientists Meeting was held directly before, from 6-7 July. A DVD had been produced including oral presentations and slides from this 3rd PAGES Open Science Meeting.
Corvallis is nestled in the heart of Oregon's Willamette Valley, between the beautiful Cascade Mountains and the scenic Oregon coast. It has a population of 55,000 and buys more power from renewable resources than any other city in the nation.
The main aim of the OSM is to encourage international collaboration and interdisciplinary science. By linking various disciplines,the meeting seeks to showcase paleoresearch, environmental history and modeling in a unique way. It is hoped that presenters will take the opportunity not only to present their own work but to highlight paleoscience in general
The surrounding countryside offers a wide range of outdoor activities, including biking, hiking, fishing and rafting. The town of Corvallis was settled in the mid-1800's and also offers interesting historical sites and cultural activities. For more information on Corvallis, visit the Corvallis Tourism website.
