The objective of MAR Con '22 is to collect research results, practical experience, and innovative ideas related to Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR), as listed in the following program overview:

  • Session 1 - Sustaining Rates: Chemical, biological, and hydraulic processes resulting in clogging and reduction of infiltration rates
  • Session 2 - Improving Quality: Hydrogeochemical processes affecting the water quality, with special focus on micropollutants
  • Session 3 - Proving Performance: Monitoring and modelling, including reactive transport models to predict the fate of patho­gens and emerging pollutants
  • Session 4 - Optimizing Design: Implications of the processes mentioned above on the technical design of MAR projects in the frame of regional flow models and water management plans
  • Session 5 - Panel discussion: Global applicability, bottlenecks and proactive legislation
  • Field site visit

Organizer: The conference is organised for the EU MSCA MARSoluT ITN by Technical University of Darmstadt (TUDa), Darmstadt, Germany, and Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, Spain

Convenors: Prof. Christoph Schüth, Institute of Applied Geology, Technical University of Darmstadt (TUDa); Prof. Xavier Sanchez-Vila and Prof. Daniel Fernàndez-Garcia, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC)
