Tuesday, 01 February

The online 2022 Brunings Lecture is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, February 1, 1:30 pm to about 3-3:30 pm. To receive the MSTeams link, please register! The session will be recorded so remember to keep camera and microphone closed.

The theme is sediment management for sustainable living in deltas: a cross-section of the Utrecht University program “Sediments matter” and related work by our alumni. We will first set the stage, then move from rivers to the coast, and from specific issues to systemic views.
