SGM 2021: Symposium «Limnology in Switzerland»



This symposium is part of the 19th Swiss Geoscience Meeting from 19 to 20 November 2021 in Geneva. We invite limnologists working on different systems and scales to present their research and exchange with peers. With the symposia being held in the city of Geneva, we particularly welcome contributions that show first results from the LéXPLORE platform installed on Lake Geneva. Young researchers are particularly encouraged to participate and present their results. The session will share the poster session with the «Hydrology and Hydrogeology» session to promote an integrated view of the water resource and foster interdisciplinary research.
