VOTE for your favourite scientist to win a €500 prize to spend on communicating more science.
The water molecule is the most common chemical on the planet’s surface (covering as much as 71% of it), it is the main part of all living cells, and vital for all life on Earth. Water in the ocean also carries energy, in its waves, tides and temperature. And as our climate changes, how we manage the water we have is becoming more and more important.
This zone will include scientists using water in their work. They could be developing tests to check that water supplies are safe or planning water management for new cities, seeing if energy from oceans can be used as a sustainable energy source, investigating flood risks, studying water ecosystems, maybe even looking for water in outer space.
