Brown Bag Lunch n°5 on Offshore Groundwater

Monday 13 June 2022 // Registration is open until 1 June 2022

The European Marine Board (EMB) is hosting its 5th Brown Bag Lunch on the topic of "Offshore freshened Groundwater: An unconventional water resource in coastal regions" on Monday 13 June 2022.

Offshore Groundwater: Freshwater resources in coastal regions are under enormous stress due to population growth, pollution, climate change and political conflicts, and many coastal cities have already suffered extreme water shortages (e.g. Cape Town, Chennai, Sao Paolo, Shanghai). Offshore freshened groundwater (OFG) has been proposed as an alternative source of freshwater to relieve water scarcity, provide a buffer to increased demand during periods of intense drought, and mitigate the adverse effects of groundwater depletion and climate change.

This event includes lunch, offered by EMB, followed by a presentation from Prof. Aaron Micalef, Senior Scientist at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre in Kiel, Germany, and ending with an interactive discussion on the topic. The in-person event will take place at Scotland House, Rdpt Robert Schuman 6, 1040, Brussels. There will also be the possibility to follow the presentation via Zoom or YouTube.

Registration is open until 1 June 2022 and is mandatory both for in-person and online attendance.

Please register and get more information on the EMB Website.
