AbstractRoute field trip A: Huesca-Monegros (Sariñena-Bujaraloz-Sariñena)-Huesca.
The route starts from the Conference Venue in Palacio de Congresos (Huesca) in SE direction towards the agricultural county of Monegros (2765 Km2, population density 7.4 inh./km2). The north part of the county has been intensively transformed into and irrigated agricultural system, being an area highly productive of corn, wheat, barley, rice, and vegetables if water, which is incorporated into the area from Cinca and Gállego rivers, is available. Natural wetlands were restored in this area (Life Programme CREAMAGUA) to improve the quality of the return water from irrigation and hence, biodiversity.
Lake Sariñena, originally an endorheic salt lake, was transformed a few decades ago to a freshwater pond of 2 km2 (lake shoreline 8 km and maximum water depth is 5-10 m) byfresh and polluted water flows from agricultural surplus. The water level of the lake is controlled by a dram.
