P3. Middle Eastern Water Resources in Times of Crisis

Avner Vengosh, John W. Lane

Symposium co-sponsored by GSA Hydrogeology Division

Middle East water resourcesSince early civilization water resources in the Middle East have been incredibly fragile and contested. The contamination of increasingly scarce groundwater resources presents serious challenges to the people in the region. In many cases, surface and groundwater systems cross political boundaries between hostile neighbors. This symposia session seeks to bring together hydrologists and water policy experts to shed light on the fate the Middle Eastern water resources. The symposium will focus on the interface between hydrological sciences, water management, and political consequences derived from disputes and cooperative efforts in the Middle East.
