11:30 – 12:30 Water and Agriculture: from waste towards sustainable food supply!
Prof. Dr. Wolfram Mauser, Faculty of Geosciences, Department of Geography, LMU

Wolfram Mauser is Professor of Geography and Remote Sensing at the Department for Geography. He is Coordinator of the project GLOWA-Danube; Head of the subproject Hydrology and Remote Sensing at the Section Geography; Chairman of the National Committee for Global Change Research (the office of the National Committee is at the Geography Section from 1.1.2003)
Prof. Mauser‘s research focus is on the role of water in the Earth system and in the contemporary global human induced changes of environment and society. In this context Mauser develops and uses data processing schemes to convert huge data streams from satellites into meaningful information on our changing environment and simulation models to understand this information and to explore options of a sustainable future use of water and other natural resources for improved food security.
