AquaConSoil 2017 – call for abstracts

Yes its that time again – the call for abstracts for the 14th International AquaConSoil Conference has gone out.  The conference will focus on the sustainable use and management of soil, sediment and water resources and has outlined the following themes and topics to be covered by this event.

1. Assessment and monitoring of soil, water and sediment quality
1a. Adaptive monitoring based on real time data, model driven
1b. Sensors and sampling
1c. Molecular monitoring of microbial processes
1d. Integrative methods, overall indicators
1e. Groundwater-soil-sediment-surface water interaction and system dynamics
2. Risk assessment
2a. Human health risks
2b. Environmental risks, including bio-availability
2c. Risk assessment of emerging pollutants and multi-compounds
2d. Risks related to subsurface energy systems & (waste) storage in the subsurface
3. Advances in remediation technologies
3a. Bioremediation
3b. Chemical remediation
3c. Physical techniques, including thermal techniques
3d. Phytoremediation and ecological engineering
3e. Nanoremediation
3f. Stabilization techniques
3g. Combined treatment technologies and technology trains
3h. Other technologies
4. Strategies and policies for pollution management and remediation
4a. Remediation goals and strategies
4b. Sustainability and socio-economic appraisal of remediation technologies and strategies
4c. Managing large scale industrial pollution
4d. Managing large scale agricultural pollution
5. Reuse and upgrading of land, water and sediment in the circular economy
5a. Brownfield regeneration and redevelopment of former industrial areas
5b. Recovery of nutrients and other valuable resources
5c. Reuse and upgrading of water, soil and sediment products
5d. Pollution control by constructions and infrastructure
6. Sustainable use & spatial planning of the subsurface
6a. Ecosystem services and natural capital, socio-economic value of soil-water systems
6b. The role of the natural system in climate change adaptation and urban resilience
6c. Sustainable land use and spatial planning of the subsurface
