Characterizing regional groundwater flow systems: Insight from practical applications and theoretical development
Regional groundwater, Groundwater flow systems. This international symposium will examine the current state of the regional groundwater flow concept, discuss any recent theoretical advancement, and share experiences from applications spanning energy exploration to environmental management.
Abstracts are being sought on all aspects of regional groundwater flow, including mapping, modelling, Earth observation, and other methods. The following topics areas are included:
- Water Management: watersheds and water sources; groundwater dependent ecosystems; mixing of local and regional flows; isotopic and geochemical fingerprinting
- Variable Density Flow: deep, saline flow systems; coastal settings and sea water intrusion; application of force potential vs. velocity potential
- Economic Reserves Exploration: basin hydrodynamics; hydrocarbon exploration; geothermal energy; ore genesis
- Waste Disposal: CO2 sequestration; pore space management; deep repositories; tailings and landfills.
Abstracts must be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 February 2017.
The symposium will also have two optional 1-day field excursions in southern Alberta to learn more about the history of Canadian hydrogeology and hydrocarbon exploration (CAD 50 for each trip).
Price: CAD 250
Organised by The symposium will be hosted by the IAH Canadian National Chapter, and organized by the IAH Commission on Regional Groundwater Flow in cooperation with the IAH Commission on Groundwater and Energy.
