We are pleased to invite you to present your work at the next vEGU21: Gather Online (19–30 April 2021) that will be held entirely online, in place of the EGU 2021 General Assembly in Vienna.
We would like to draw your attention concerning our session HS8.2.1, entitled:
The role of groundwater flow systems in solving water management and environmental problems
Session Conveners: John Molson, Daniela Ducci, Jim LaMoreaux, Manuela Lasagna, Judit Mádl-Szőnyi
Description of the session:
The session aims to bring together scientists studying various aspects related to groundwater flow systems, and their role in solving water management and environmental problems.
Understanding groundwater flow systems requires knowledge of the governing processes and conditions from the local to regional and basin-scales, including porous and fractured porous media. Moreover, problems connected to groundwater management underline the importance of sustainable development and protection of groundwater resources.
In this context of groundwater flow understanding, the session intends to analyze issues connected to groundwater management and its protection from degradation with respect to quantity and quality (e.g. due to overexploitation, conflicts in use, climate change, resource development or contamination). Papers related to methods of defining groundwater flow, and preventing, controlling and mitigating harmful environmental impacts related to groundwater, including those in developing countries, are also welcome.
The session is sponsored by the Regional Groundwater Flow Commission of the IAH (IAH-RGFC; https://regionalgwflow.iah.org/).
Please, pass this information to anyone who might be interested and feel free to contact us if you need any help or support.
Looking forward to meeting you virtually!
Manuela, Daniela, Jim, Judit and John
