“Teleconnections Between Source and Sink in Sediment Dispersal Systems”

Eel River Basin, N. California, September 17-21, 2006

Thanks to all of you for attending the MARGINS S2S TEI on Teleconnections Between Source and Sink in Sediment Dispersal Systems. The Conveners and the MARGINS Office would now like constructive comments concerning the workshop organization, presentations, and venue in order help improve subsequent MARGINS events. Your response will help MARGINS judge how well the TEI fostered its goals  — to review our current understanding of the S2S concept, to define outstanding problems, and to discuss and plan future experiments and collaborations.

Thus, when you get a chance, please answer the questions by selecting from the dropdown lists. There are text fields at the end of the questionnaire for comments and thoughts that may not be covered by the questions, or for additional input on your response to any question, if you so desire to expand. Filling out the entire form (without writing additional comments) and submitting it takes less than two minutes, and your input is very important to us!
