Marine and Environmental Engineering Meeting 2017

Marine and Environmental Engineering

23-26 October 2017, IOLR, Haifa, Israel

Geoengineering may produce substantial societal benefits. The meeting, in addition to “traditional” geoengineering options (including capturing and storing some carbon dioxide, reflecting more sunlight to outer space, ocean iron fertilization, etc.) will consider other options relating to the marine environmental engineering. The meeting topics include advances in the methodology of artificial upwelling with potential applications for modification of extreme local climates, increasing winter rains in the Levant, mitigation of hurricane damage in coastal regions, preservation of coral reefs from bleaching, and increasing marine aquaculture and fisheries productivity. Further topics include, but are not limited to, altering properties of the air-sea interface, using deep ocean water for the air conditioning of coastal buildings, and changing the water biochemical composition by transferring the oceanic water into closed seas. An important function of the meeting is also to assess the environmental impact and potential adverse effects of geoengineering approaches.
