Résumé partiel
This IRES project is co-funded by Office of International Science and Engineering (OISE) and Hydrologic Sciences programs (GEO/EAR).
Part 1 : Water resources are critical to health and sustainable development, particularly in arid regions such as the Middle East and North Africa. Water-resource management strategies require scientific knowledge, physical observations, and cultural sensitivity to ensure long-term sustainability. This program will develop the abilities of young US hydrologic scientists with diverse backgrounds to conduct research, communicate their findings, and work collaboratively in an international setting. Over three years, student-led projects with colleagues in Morocco will provide an improved understanding of the sustainability of groundwater resources. Understanding how aquifers are recharged by infiltration through streambeds in arid regions will allow researchers to model water-resource availability and answer questions about the impact of such infiltration on water quality and ecosystem services. Students will acquire both "hard" (technical) and "soft" (interpersonal) skills by participating in online training courses and a workshop, in field data collection and analysis, and in professional meetings and public outreach.
