GLOBAQUA - workshop A RECONNAISSANCE OF TRACE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS AND METALS IN GLOBAQUA RIVER BASINS

9-10 November - Barcelona

The GLOBAQUA project organises a workshop entitled “A RECONNAISSANCE OF TRACE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS AND METALS IN GLOBAQUA RIVER BASINS: Effects on ecosystems and risk assessment” which will take place 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. Several priority 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.

Deadline for abstract submission is 15th September 2017, while deadline for registration is 9th October 2017. For more information on the event and to register, click here.
