Workshop: A reconnaissance of trace organic compounds and metals in GLOBAQUA river basins: Effects on ecosystems and risk assessment

Contributed by: Aeiforia

From 2017-11-09 to 2017-11-10, Spain
This workshop, organised by the GLOBAQUA project (www.globaqua-project.eu), will be held in Barcelona (Spain) on 9-10 November 2017. This GLOBAQUA workshop will compile the data obtained from the chemical analysis performed in the samples from the GLOBAQUA basins.
GLOBAQUA aims at identifying the prevalence, interaction and linkages between stressors, and to assess their effects on the status of freshwater ecosystems in order to improve water management practice and policies. The project assembles a multidisciplinary team of 23 scientific institutions, as well as water authorities and river basin managers, and includes experts in geomorphology, biology, chemistry, hydrology, modelling, socio-economics and policy advocacy.

This GLOBAQUA workshop will compile the data obtained from the chemical analysis performed in the samples from the GLOBAQUA basins. Several priorities and emerging pollutants, as well as nanomaterials, have been analysed in Adige, Evrotas and Sava in order to identify relevant multi-stress situations across these basins of study. With these data it is possible to study the fate and behaviour of these pollutants under multiple-stress conditions and their potential effects on ecosystems as well as their associated risk. As a further step the preliminary results of the controlled field experiments and manipulative laboratory experiments testing the effects of multiple pressures on fate and behaviour of pollutants will be also presented.

Registration is opened until 9 October 2017 and the deadline for abstract submission is 15 September 2017.
