Water ressources and wetlands

"Water ressources and wetlands", c'est le thème du colloque internationale organisé par la société romaine de limnologie (Romanian Limnogeographical Association - RLGA) en collaboration avec les deux organismes scientifiques intervenant dans le delta du Danube (Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve Authority (DDBRA) et Danube Delta National Institute for Research and Development (DDNIRD).
Ce colloque se tiendra du 14 au 16 septembre 2012 à l'hôtel Delta de Tulcea, au bord du danube en plein centre ville. C'est au pied de cet hôtel que partent les bateaux qui vous embarquent pour un ou deux jours à la découverte de la merveilleuse nature du delta mais aussi des populations qui y vivent.
Les objectifs de cette rencontre sont très variés et de nombreux chercheurs européens seront concernés : géomorphologues, hydrologues, botanistes, climatologues,  gestionnaires, archéologues ...

Voici le texte de l'invitation. Pour en savoir plus, il vous faudra aller sur le site :

The objectives of this conference are based on the need to integrate various approaches and angles in the research of inland and sea waters in order to establish sustainable ways of solving present and future problems generated by the ever more intensive use of water resources for human activities. The goal is to offer participants a meeting place where experience and knowledge can be shared and exchanged, whether they are researchers, private companies or government institutions (central or local), in order to come up with solutions for the issues facing each of these stakeholders.
The scientific subjects which will be addressed cover a wide area of interest ranging from the study of the behavior of inland waters (groundwaters, rivers, lakes and man-made reservoirs) and coastal sea waters to the analysis of the degree to which these resources have been affected in terms of quality due to human intervention and present climate changes.
We have also scheduled workshops that will host discussions regarding the impact of various pollutants on deltaic environments and coastal waters.
Another section of the conference will focus on the integrated management of river basins and water bodies aimed at conserving and improving the quality of water resources in the wider context of national and regional policies and legislation.
The field trips in the Danube Delta, which is one of the largest European wetlands known for its biodiversity and unique habitats, protected under the administration of the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve Authority (DDBRA), will contribute to a better understanding of the management of such a reserve. Furthermore, the fragile deltaic front to the Black Sea, notable for the active processes of abrasion and alluvium accumulation may be of great interest to researchers.
