In deep water

A conference in the Great Hall marked the tenth anniversary of renowned interdisciplinary research group water@leeds, one of the largest centres for water research in the world. Collaborators in academia and industry joined speakers from water@leeds to highlight the impact of the research on society and the economy. Changing climate and rainfall patterns, growing global populations, shifting land use patterns and increasing water consumption all provide challenges that water@leeds is helping to address.
