DCU Water Institute Week will run from January 25th – 28th in the Stokes Building Foyer & Room S206, S209 DCU Main Campus.
Events are scheduled to take place as follows:
Monday 25th: Marine Science Art Fusion “Diaphanous Beneath” & reception, 4-7pm
What lies beneath? Below the waters transparent surface there is growth. Drawing on research from DCU Water Institute’s Marine and Environmental Sensing Technology Hub (MESTECH) Diaphanous Beneath is a collection of garments which explores and interprets the growth, layering and patterns of the diatom and crab surface. Materials are manipulated, layered and embellished to represent the expansion of organic matter and the clear and translucent quality of the sea.
Growth, action and reaction, layering, repellent surfaces, complex details. Fashion meets Science in this 3-dimensionsal visual exploration of these biofilm forming organisms.
To register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, before Friday 15th to register.
Tuesday 26th: Photography Exhibition – DCU
Underwater vision system for the identification of sharks and other marine species.
Wednesday 27th: SWIG workshop: 9.30am – 4pm
Coastal Pollution Monitoring Workshop
The SWIG Coastal Pollution Monitoring Workshop will address the impact of EU Directives including Water Framework, Bathing Waters and Shellfish to monitoring of rivers through to coastal waters under current pressures from both industrial and natural pollution. The Workshop will provide delegates the opportunity to learn about current monitoring projects and practices from regulators, academics, water companies and sensor suppliers from both the UK and Ireland.
The workshop will look at monitoring technologies for application to coasts, ports, marinas affecting leisure users, fisheries, aquaculture and bathing waters.
Thursday 28th: DCU Water Institute/Agilent Symposium 9.30am – 5.30pm
Advanced Analytical Methods for Environmental Analysis of Water
This symposium will bring experts from Ireland, Europe and the United States to show applications of advanced analytical methodologies for the field of water monitoring. Topics cover emerging contaminants, challenges of detection and matrix and global water perspectives.
january 25 (Monday) - 28 (Thursday)
