ICWRER 2019 provides an independent global platform for researchers and practitioners having multidisciplinary interests to present and discuss their latest theoretical and practical research advances in solving complex issues. Professionals from around the world who will participate in this highly interactive and informative event include hydrologists, water managers, hydraulic engineers, students, ecologists, professors, consultants, government officials, environmental engineers, climatologists, urban planners, and many others. The stimulating and friendly environment within a welcoming venue at ICWRER 2019 will promote a rich exchange of ideas among participants who will subsequently be in a position to play proactive roles in enhancing society.

The main theme of ICWRER 2019 is Hydro-Ecology and Green Development. The conference will address a challenging range of important topics related to water resources and environment research. To maximize the global impacts of the original contributions made by the participants, various dissemination outlets will be utilized. Conference proceedings will be published. Selected papers will be considered for publication in Water Resources and Economics or Water Science and Engineering or Sustainability or International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. Best Paper Awards will be presented at the conference dinner.

The deadline for submitting extended abstracts is January 31, 2019. Extended abstract submission | Instructions and templates | Learn more

 

NRPOP Lab

The Northern Region Persistent Organic Pollution Control (NRPOP) Laboratory is founded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and the Industrial Research and Innovation Funds (IRIF) of Newfoundland and Labrador Government. The lab is equipped with a multi-scale experimental system which can be used to support model development through simulating the transport processes of POPs and their degradation products, testing the effects of pollution control and remediation practices, and gathering data for driving and validating models.

Welcome to the NRPOP Laboratory website

The Northern Region Persistent Organic Pollution Control (NRPOP) Laboratory is founded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and the Industrial Research and Innovation Funds (IRIF) of Newfoundland and Labrador Government. With a strong commitment to northern regions, this first-class laboratory aims to conduct integrated modeling and experimental research on the development of innovative investigation, simulation, control and remediation technologies that are applicable to mitigate the contamination caused by persistent organic pollutants (POPs). POPs are synthetic organic compounds which are non-degradable, persistent in the environment and intensively carcinogenic and toxic to human beings as well as wild lives. Although most POPs have been banned for decades, they still exist as long term hazards due to their persistence and ability of long-range transportation. The research will not only enhance the understanding of the pollution mechanisms but also help governments and industries improve their practices for mitigation of the POPs-related pollution problems, leading to short-/long-term environmental, economic and social benefits.
