The joint DGGV, DMG, and DVGeo 2018 conference took place at Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn from 2-6 September.
During the conference the German Fachsektion Hydrogeologie and the German Chapter of IAH held a“Groundwater and Climate Change” session (following the great response to an earlier, similar session held at the FH-DGGV meeting in Bochum). Such contribution integrated well into the programme of GeoBonn 2018, given as there were other sessions on the subject of “Climate Change”. The keynote speaker was Prof. Richard Taylor (University College London and former Chair of IAH’s Commission for Groundwater and Climate Change), who presented a rousing lecture on “Groundwater in a warming world: the impact of changing climate extremes”. This was followed by three further lectures on groundwater in Europe, groundwater vulnerability and groundwater and paleo-soil in the context of climate change. The session was well attended with around 50 people continuing discussions with intent, particularly so thanks to the thought-provoking lecturers.
