Clayton Hall   •   February 3, 2017   •   12 to 5 pm


Join us as we bring together water researchers across campus. Our afternoon starts with participants sharing their research interests and followed by breakout sessions to identify challenges and opportunities to strengthen UD’s research initiatives.

Water resources are increasingly threatened by human and climate pressures. More frequent, longer droughts and increasing groundwater extraction for urban populations and irrigation result in pressures on water quantity and quality. Climate, population, and land-use changes are exacerbating groundwater depletion, and water quality is compromised by rising sea level, more frequent and extensive flooding, and natural and anthropogenic contaminants. These changes are creating a need to balance water and energy requirements to meet the water and food needs of a changing world. Overcoming these water challenges will require solutions from engineering, natural, social, and health sciences, and the humanities.

We hope you will join us for a productive workshop!
