Calgary Symposium 2017
June 26, 2017 - June 28, 2017
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
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 email@example.com for meeting information.
