44th IAH Congress
September 25 - September 29
Groundwater Heritage and Sustainability. Eight main congress topics have been established under this theme: 1) Groundwater heritage – passing beneﬁts to current and future generations; 2) Groundwater modelling; 3) Groundwater monitoring – new approaches; 4) Groundwater in karst systems; 5) Groundwater and dependent ecosystems; 6) Hydropower and geothermal energy; 7) Sustainable management of groundwater resources; 8) Mineral waters and human health.
Mid-congress excursions are being planned to several hydrogeologically-diverse and interesting localities, including the Dubrovnik hinterland, the beautiful islands of the Elaﬁti archipelago and the Mljet National Park. Post-congress excursions will oﬀer a chance to visit to some of the most famous localities in the Dinaric karst including the Jadro spring which is used to supply Split, the Plitvice Lakes National Park (tufa barrier lakes), the Blue and Red Lakes (famous sinkholes) and the Buna Spring (the largest karst spring in the Dinarides) and other localities.
A call for abstracts will come in November 2016.
Organised by The IAH National Chapter of Croatia
IAH is actively involved with programs that provide a valuable forum for scientists and engineers who have a broad interest in global perspectives on groundwater resources and hydrogeological issues.
The USNC is affiliated with the National Ground Water Association (NGWA) and the Geological Society of America (GSA), as these organizations also have international groundwater science interests. The USNC holds meetings at annual events of these other organizations to encourage networking among USNC members and others who are interested in promoting international cooperation among hydrogeologists and others with an interest in groundwater. The USNC meets in the spring at the NGWA Ground Water Summit and in the fall at the GSA Annual Conference.
Check the USNC newsletter for meeting day and time announcements. Alternatively, check the onsite conference program or contact Jim Lamoreaux, Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org for meeting information.
