NGWA Conference on Hydrogeophysics and Deep Groundwater
Gain understanding and insight on hydrogeophysics and deep groundwater during this two-day NGWA conference. Focusing on the use of geophysics — from remote sensing to borehole applications — for groundwater studies, the conference also includes a follow-up to the 2014 NGWA Conference on Characterization of Deep Groundwater.
- Event Type:
- Mar. 20-21, 2017
- Denver Marriott City Center
- Denver , CO , USA
NGWA’s Hydrogeophysics and Deep Groundwater conference is being held concurrently with the 30th Annual Symposium on the Application of Geophysics to Engineering and Environmental Problems, also known as SAGEEP.
Attendees will have opportunity for dual registration to be able to attend sessions in either conference for the duration of the NGWA event.
Abstracts are being sought for the NGWA Conference on Hydrogeophysics and Deep Groundwater in the following two tracks and are due October 31, 2016.
Track 1 — Applications of Hydrogeophysics to Groundwater Characterization, Monitoring, and Management — seeks abstracts addressing applications of airborne, land-based, and shallow marine geophysics to groundwater problems, including the following:
- Aquifer characterization
- Drone technology
- Energy development and mining applications
- Freshwater/saltwater interactions
- Karst and fractured rock applications
- Land subsidence
- Managed aquifer recharge
- Recharge estimation
- Site remediation
- Surface water/groundwater interactions
- Three-dimensional geologic modeling
- Urban water resources
- Use of remote sensing for estimation of water use
- Water quality.
Track 2 — Deep Groundwater Applications — seeks abstracts on all aspects deep groundwater, defined generally as that beneath the typical depth limits of today’s withdrawals for water supply, including those in the following topic areas:
- Aquifer exemptions
- Carbon sequestration
- Characterization of deep groundwater
- Deep drilling and monitoring technologies
- Deep groundwater flow systems
- Saline groundwater
- Unconventional oil and gas development
- Underground waste injection.
Abstracts must be submitted online by Monday, October 31, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Please note: Titles should be limited to 100 characters or less and abstracts should be limited to 300 words or less. Abstracts need to be in sentence form and without bullet points.
