* Welcome to GAP VIII!* *- Eilat March 30 - April 8, 2008*

*Gross and Net Primary Production: Closing the Gap between Concepts 
and** **Measurements** *

*WWW.GAP-AQUATIC.ORG <http://www.GAP-AQUATIC.ORG>*

GAP WILL TAKE PLACE 6 MONTHS FROM NOW…

*PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED NOW FOR GAP WORKSHOP*

*DEADLINE FOR PRE-REGISTRATION OCTOBER 30,2007*

IT IS TIME TO MAKE MORE DEFINITE PLANS. WE NOW HAVE COORDINATORS FOR 
EACH PLANNED WORK SITE AND GROUPS.

*IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO JOIN US AT GAP EILAT WE NEED FOR YOU TO 
PREREGISTER AT THIS TIME FOR THE WORKSHOP AND ALSO SPECIFICALLY FOR THE 
WORKGROUP YOU WOULD PREFER *.

*YOU SHOULD ALSO BEGIN CORRESPONDING WITH THE APPROPRIATE COORDINATOR/S 
AS TO EXPERIMENTAL PLANS AND EQUIPMENT THAT YOU ARE PLANNING TO 
BRING/USE. GROUP COORDINATORS ARE LISTED ON THE WEBSITE*

*WWW.GAP-AQUATIC.ORG <http://www.GAP-AQUATIC.ORG>*

*THE SOONER WE HAVE DETAILS OF EXPERIMENTAL REQUIREMENTS - THE BETTER 
ORGANISED WE CAN BE TO ENSURE YOUR EXPERIMENTAL NEEDS ARE MET!*

*Gross and Net Primary Production: Closing the Gap between Concepts 
and** **Measurements** *

Accurate determination of the levels of Gross Primary Production, 
Respiration and other loss processes in aquatic environments are 
fundamental for understanding the functioning of these ecosystems. The 
need for progress in this field has become increasingly evident with the 
realization of the complex impact of global warming on these ecosystems. 
We are delighted to host the upcoming GAP meeting on the serene shores 
of the Red Sea at Eilat.

Eilat provides an excellent site to test novel theories, using 
experimental approaches such as stable isotope labeling, photoacoustics, 
fast rate repetition rate and pulse amplitude modulated fluorometry, and 
satellite imaging. The waters of the Gulf of Eilat are oceanic, 
oligotrophic "blue desert" waters, with hyperdense populations of algal 
symbionts in the region's corals, seagrass meadows and seaweed beds. 
Close by is the Israeli National Center for Mariculture where dense 
macroalgal cultures are maintained, and biotechnological companies 
supplying microalgae for the pigment and nutracutical industries. The 
desert environment provides additional excitement for those looking for 
photosynthetic life in extreme environments. Near by are the saltern 
ponds that harbor a diverse population of photosynthetic organisms.

*The seminar will be hosted by the Inter University Institute 
<http://www.iui-eilat.ac.il> for Marine Sciences at Eilat (IUI). The 
proximity of IUI to both a reef and oligotrophic open-ocean environment 
provides a convenient study site for ongoing experiments and 
simulations. IUI has educational facilities including lecture rooms, 
teaching laboratories, and boarding facilities which make this an 
exceptional site for a productive seminar in a relaxed, beautiful 
setting. During the meeting field trips will be organized for a taste of 
the area's treasures. *

*We hope you can join us for some great experiments and a productive 
seminar*
