Last call for submission: European Geosciences Union General Assembly

The next European Geosciences Union General Assembly takes place entirely online in April 2021. Submit your abstract to our forthcoming session until January 20th!

Fate and transport processes of pathogens and emerging contaminants at multiple scales (Session HS2.3.5)


Online-Event from 19 to 30 April 2021

Invited Speaker: Liping Pang


Conveners: Julia Derx, Fulvio Boano, Jennifer Drummond, Margaret Stevenson


This session aims to bring together communities from hydrological, microbiological and chemical sciences to increase the understanding about the dominant processes controlling fecal indicator, pathogen and contaminant fate and transport at larger scales. Consequently, we welcome contributions that aim to close these knowledge gaps and include both small and large-scale experimental, with the focus on


  • the fate and transport of fecal indicators, pathogens and emerging contaminants in rivers, groundwater and estuaries
  • Hydrological, physically based modelling approaches
  • Methods for identifying the dominant processes and for transferring fecal indicator, pathogen and contaminant transport parameters from the laboratory to the field or catchment scale
  • Investigations of the implications of contamination of water resources for water safety management planning and risk assessment frameworks


Please do submit an abstract on your work – we embrace diversity and support early career researchers!
