2024 Chemical Impacts of Climate Change: Lunchtime online talks and discussion series

21 May 2024 12:30-13:15, United Kingdom

Monthly lunchtime on-line sessions with speakers and discussion on the impacts of climate change on pollutant, environment and health chemistry.  Sessions are 12:30 -13:15 with talks up to 30 minutes leaving the remaining time for questions, answers and discussion.  Sessions will be hosted on Zoom. Joining information will be sent with confirmation of registration.  

This month's presentation by Dr Jessica Gomez-Banderas of the James Hutton Institute and Alison Brown of the University of Stirling will introduce the NERC funded project MOT4Rivers which is part of the Freshwater Quality Programme directed by Leeds University.  The project is investigating how hydro-climatic interactions affect the movement of pollutant cocktails through the environment and how these interact with riverine ecosystems.  A key part of the project is to devise a system to monitor and measure pollution to reduce uncertainties in the evolving risks to our riverine water quality.  The presentation will cover preliminary data resulting from the monthly sampling campaigns, which commenced in Sept 2023, highlighting key chemical and toxicology results and their implications.  It will explain the flow-through systems that will instrument the rural-urban transition to monitor a range of legacy and contemporary pollutants.  These systems, in the process of being installed, will deliver near real-time data of river water quality supporting understanding of ecological impacts.  Additionally, the presentation will highlight the larger programme of work funded by NERC, introducing the other four projects funded by the Freshwater Quality programme.
