We invite you to submit an abstract to the session ‘Sustainable management of river deltas under pressure’ (Session GM6.6/BG7.6/HS5.17), to be held at the EGU General Assembly 2018, 8-13 April 2018, Vienna, Austria.
The aim of this session is to bring together knowledge of both natural and societal processes (inter)acting in a delta, and their impacts, which is essential to find sustainable solutions for delta management. We invite contributions to this session on (1) human-induced processes driving change in river deltas, (2) impacts of these changing conditions, and (3) optimising delta management solutions, in particular by using an interdisciplinary approach.
Please check the EGU website for more information and application. The deadline for submitting an abstract is 10 January 2018.This session is organised by Future Deltas, a research programme of Utrecht University (NL), in collaboration with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (USA) and the University of Southampton (UK).
