Following the successful first workshop of 2005, this three-day informal meeting will be an opportunity for discussion on all aspects of the behaviour of turbidity and related gravity currents, including relevant studies on non-particulate gravity currents, from direct observations in the environment and the laboratory to numerical simulation. The workshop will consist of a combination of relatively informal plenary sessions, posters, and an offsite half-day excursion to promote informal discussion. We suggest that this should be a work- in-progress meeting, and anticipate perhaps 50 to 60 participants.
