An-Najah's Participation in the Second Edition of the International Congress on Water and Environmental Studies
Professor Shehdeh Jodeh, staff member at the Chemistry Department, and a group of PhD and MA students in chemistry recently participated in the 2nd Edition of the International Congress on Water and Environmental Studies which was held at the Multidisciplinary Nador College, Morocco over the period 14-15 November 2019.
The conference aimed to provide a conceptual framework to address causes, effects, and solutions of water shortages and scarcity which present a major risk for cities across the globe.
The conference included 150 researchers from different countries around the world with the attendance of the President of Mohammed First University, Oujda, and the organizing committee of the conference.
Prof. Jodeh participated as a keynote speaker at the opening session of the conference, and gave a speech on the importance of scientific research in the advancement of society in the Arab world. He also presented a research paper titled: ''Contamination assessments using the ecological risk and geo-accumulation index for trace metals from surface sediments of Wadi Al-Qilt, West Bank, Palestine". The results of his study reveal that there are variations in trace metals concentrations in the sediment samples analyzed due to anthropogenic contributions.
