GROUNDWATER AND LIFE: Science and Technology into Action

Topic 7 Advances in Karst and Fractured-rock Hydrogeology
Conveners: Nico Goldscheider, Young-Jin Park, Judit Mádl-Sz
őnyi, Sung-Hoon Ji

“Groundwater from these aquifers is a major freshwater resource for human consumption and ecosystems. Furthermore, the specific structure and properties of these hard-rock aquifers also affect the performance and safety of artificial underground facilities. This topic aims to discuss the recent advances in understanding groundwater flow and contaminant transport in karst and fractured-rock aquifers.”

T7.1 Recent developments in karst hydrogeology
T7.2 Characterizing fractured rock aquifers
T7.3 Modeling of flow and transport in karst/fractured-rock aquifers
T7.4 The critical zone in karst system (Karst Institute of Geology CAGS, UNESCO-IGCP Special Session)
T7.5 Regional flow systems of deep carbonates – Geological agency, discharge features and practical consequences

Nico Goldscheider will present a keynote lecture on karst hydrogeology.

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is March 31. Details:
