#422 - Advanced Computations and Numerical Models in Water Technology and Resource Management - I (T1004)
This session invites submissions which will highlight advances in computations and modeling, with specific application to quality and characteristics of water (such as purity, flow, recycling, prediction of water height, harvesting, etc.) for chemical, bio-chemical and environmental processes. Water resources being of extreme importance for sustainability of the planet, to this effect this session is not just restricted to industrial water systems but computation and systems approaches for industrial waters, drinking waters, and natural water systems is part of this session. The session will also consider approaches to resource management via advanced numerical models.
