Lecture Theatre, Geological Survey Ireland, Beggars Bush, Haddington Road, Dublin 4
Lecture Theatre, GSI
The David Burdon Memorial Lecture will be presented by Dr Viviana Re (University of Pisa) on 'The role of socio-hydrogeology in groundwater protection in developing countries' with some focus on recent work in Tunisia.
Viviana Re is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Pisa (Italy).
Her research interests are in hydrogeology, hydro geochemistry of water contamination, isotope techniques for monitoring groundwater salinisation and geochemical processes occurring in contaminated aquifers.
Viviana is also actively involved in Technical Co-operation projects, focusing on the development of quality monitoring programmes, support to groundwater resource planning, management and protection.
She recently developed socio-hydrogeology, as a new approach aiming at incorporating the social dimension into hydrogeological investigations.
Viviana is a co-founder of Responsible water Scientists and since 2016 she has co-chaired the Burdon Groundwater Network of the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH-BGID).
Tea and coffee at 5.30pm, talk and discussion at 6pm. All welcome.
