The audience will be invited to put questions and make comments. Conclusions will be drawn from the discussion during each session, with possible presentation of a report on the Scientific Forum to the plenary session of the General Conference.
Visit to the Isotope Hydrology Laboratory
On the afternoon of Thursday, 24 September 1998, there will be an opportunity to visit the Isotope Hydrology Laboratory located in the Vienna International Centre. The visit will be conducted in two separate groups:
Group I: 15.00 - 15.45;
Group II: 16.00 - 16.45.
The Laboratory provides analytical services to institutions carrying out isotope hydrology and geochemical investigations in Member States. It produces, calibrates and distributes reference materials for selected environmental isotopes (stable or radioactive). The Laboratory also implements a quality assurance programme in the field of isotope hydrology.
