Feb. 3: Water workshop for faculty

Event to focus on grand challenges facing water resources

Water resources increasingly are 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.



On Friday, Feb. 3, from noon-5 p.m., the University of Delaware Research Office, the UD Energy Institute and the Delaware Environmental Institute will host a water workshop for UD faculty. Lunch will be served at noon, with the agenda starting at 1 p.m.

The goal is to bring together the University’s tremendous strengths in water across disciplines to identify grand water challenges and highlight our ability to address them.

The workshop will include short presentations from faculty on current and potential future water research, breakout discussion groups aimed at synthesizing collaborations, and a lunchtime panel discussion on funding opportunities in water.

Register online at this website. The registration deadline is Monday, Jan. 30.
