Session HS2.3.5: Fate and transport processes of pathogens and emerging contaminants at multiple scales
Invited Speaker: Liping Pang
: Julia Derx, Fulvio Boano, Jennifer Drummond, Margaret Stevenson 

This session aims to bring together communities from hydrological, microbiological and chemical sciences to increase the understanding about the dominant processes controlling fecal indicator, pathogen and contaminant fate and transport at larger scales. Consequently, we welcome contributions that aim to close these knowledge gaps and include both small and large-scale experimental, with the focus on

  • the fate and transport of fecal indicators, pathogens and emerging contaminants in rivers, groundwater and estuaries
  • Hydrological, physically based modelling approaches
  • Methods for identifying the dominant processes and for transferring fecal indicator, pathogen and contaminant transport parameters from the laboratory to the field or catchment scale
  • Investigations of the implications of contamination of water resources for water safety management planning and risk assessment frameworks

Please do submit an abstract on your work – we embrace diversity and support early career researchers!

The deadline for abstract submission is January 13, 2020

International web conference “Pool and Spa in time of Covid-19”

Monday 22.06.2020: Web conference “Pool and Spa in time of Covid-19”. 15:00 – 18:00 CEST


Registration advice: without an Italian fiscal, you can type an “x” in all mandatory financial fields (16x an “x” in the fiscal code field).

We would also like to know what the guidelines for swimming pools are in the different countries. To do this, you can fill in the questionnaire online (or ask someone from your network to do it for you). Federica will present the results of this questionnaire during the conference.
