ICRA commemorates World Water Day with a collection of 12 groundwater articles
The Catalan Institute for Water Research (ICRA) announces the publication of a collection of 12 articles for MethodsX on groundwater by its director, Damià Barceló. The collection is open to all free of charge and has been released on the occasion of World Water Day, which is celebrated on 22 March.
The articles address the main challenges facing groundwater, such as problems of quality and quantity. They also evaluate their practical aspects, in order to offer possible solutions with state-of-the-art methodologies. Damià Barceló, director of ICRA, says the compilation "will be of help to environmental scientists, especially hydrologists, as well as newcomers, PhD students and senior researchers who consider groundwater as one of the world's resources in need of protection".
Damià Barceló has also announced a special virtual issue on the same topic, also on the occasion of World Water Day 2022. This will allow authors who have not had the opportunity to participate in this collection to publish their articles. Those who have already published can also submit. The submission period will be open from 20 March to 31 October 2022.
