Gobabeb Research & Training Centre

50th Anniversary Highlight

One of several highlights of the year-long 50th Anniversary celebration programme for Gobabeb recently came to a close. This was the Colloquium of the Royal Society of South Africa held at Gobabeb over April 30th and May 1st. The programme addressed the theme 'Desert Research: Past and Future'. The programme took a very wide view of 'desert research' and included papers from the Antarctic, Mars and other exotic places. Over 21 people gave presentations ranging from the 'history and future of Gobabeb', to 'climate change physiology', to papers on giraffe, rhinos, oryx and kangaroos, to 'cryptic hypolithic soil communities', to 'restoration, research and monitoring the central Namib uranium rush', to 'meteorology and the role of satellites'.
