EGU General Assembly 2024 (14–19 April 2024)


Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to present your work at the next EGU General Assembly 2024 (14–19 April 2024).

We would like to draw your attention concerning our session HS8.2.2, entitled:

The role of groundwater flow systems in solving water management and environmental problems

(Co-sponsored by IAH – International Association of Hydrogeologists)

Session ConvenerManuela Lasagna Co-conveners: Jim LaMoreaux, Judit Mádl-Szőnyi, John Molson, Stefania Stevenazzi

The abstract submission deadline is 10 January 2024, 13:00 CET.

The session aims to bring together scientists studying various aspects of 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, the session intends to analyse issues connected to groundwater management and its protection from degradation and deterioration with respect to quantity and quality (e.g. due to over-exploitation, conflicts in use, climate change, resource development or contamination).

Papers related to methods for characterising groundwater flow systems and preventing, managing and mitigating harmful environmental impacts related to groundwater are also welcome.

The Regional Groundwater Flow Commission of IAH supports the session.

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

Warmest Regards

Manuela Lasagna, Jim LaMoreaux, Judit Mádl-Szőnyi, John Molson, Stefania Stevenazzi
