– Groundwater, society & policy
Pre-congress training courses and excursions are currently being planned. Mid-congress excursions are proposed to limestone caves, a national geopark, curative springs, a wetland conservation area and the national groundwater information centre. There wil also be seceral post congress tours for participants to enjoy Korea’s cultural heritage.
– Call for abstracts: November 2017
– Registration open: December 2017
– Abstract submission deadline: March 2018.
Location: Daejeon, Korea
Organised by IAH Korean National Chapter, Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (KIGAM) and Korean Society of Soil and Groundwater Environment (KoSSGE).
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.
