SHEATHE: Xenobiotic substances and heavy metals in the environment – a threat to health, ecosystems and development in Ghana

SWAT-GIS Workshop


A workshop on the assessment tool - Geographic Information System (GIS) - was organized by the SHEATE coordinators. Participants included lectures, PhD students, teaching and research assistants as well as interns. Participants were drawn from KNUST and other sister universities.


The 4 day training program was organized to show researchers how to use the analytical software to evaluate the levels of soil and water pollution in a specific area. GIS uses information such as land use, land cover, soil type, weather and climate and digital elevation map in evaluating the extent of pollution. This tool will become very handy to researchers in their work.


After the workshop, each participant was awarded with a certificate of participation. .
