Workshop 1 - MAR Techniques

The first workshop within the MARSoluT project took place from 06 to 08. November 2019 at the headquarters of Empresa de Transformacion Agraria S.A. (Tragsa) in Madrid, Spain. It served as an orientation workshop where the research fellows (ESRs) got familiar with the project and project objectives and are introduced to MAR in general. In detail, it comprised an introduction to the MARSoluT project, its scientific and training goals, work plan and structure, as well as an introduction of the MAR technologies. Also, the MAR case study of the Arenales aquifer in Spain was presented. The workshop featured a personal introduction round by all ESRs, and a visit to a full-scale MAR field site for a practical first-hand view (MAR facilities at Los Arenales aquifer). The research fellows had the opportunity to meet and become acquainted with each other and were informed about the project’s upcoming activities. However, a strong focus of the workshop was laid on technical presen­tations, discussions and exercises.
