Weblecture: Water, Water, Every Where, Nor Any Drop to Drink

The availability of fresh water for human consumption is becoming increasingly constrained around the world. . This presentation will give a snapshot of water utilization, stresses, and opportunities for technological solutions.

The availability of fresh water for human consumption is becoming increasingly constrained around the world.  Such shortages will increase in the future due to rising demand and the depletion of extant water resources, affecting hundreds of millions of people worldwide.

The UChicago Water Research Initiative, in partnership with Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, seeks to address some of the most critical technological issues in water resource development.  This presentation will give a snapshot of water utilization, stresses, and opportunities for technological solutions.
