Seminar: What Colour is Your Water?

What colour is your water?  
A critical review of blue, green and other ‘waters’.

The seminar “What colour is your water” is organised by ICID.UK and the UEA Water Security Research Centre.  It will critically review the colours concept applied to water resources managements; for example blue water for surface freshwater; green water for rainfed agricultural evapotranspiration; grey water, brown water and so on.
