SENSE is a partnership involving nine Dutch universities and two institutes.
One day PhD course on the modelling of river export of nutrients from land to sea using the MARINA model and the Global NEWS model. MARINA stands for Model to Assess River Inputs of Nutrients to seAs. Global NEWS stands for global Nutrient Export from WaterSheds. The models aim to better understand how human activities on land contribute to coastal eutrophication at the global and continental scale. The models quantify river export of nutrients by source (Global NEWS and MARINA) and by sub-basin (MARINA) for past and future. Application deadline: 29 April 2018 > Read more
Water Science for Impact will focus on water quality and quantity in the broadest sense. The conference brings together leaders in science, policy, and the public and private sectors to examine water science from a multidisciplinary perspective. Water science is crucial to expanding our understanding of water quality and quantity related issues that humankind encounters. Such understanding is key towards identifying critical water-related challenges, developing novel solutions and implementing steps that contribute to achieving the sustainable development goals. We welcome contributions from both the natural and social sciences, as well as from stakeholders and decision makers and from private and public sectors.
