The 8th IAHS International Groundwater Quality Conference (GQ13) is now inviting conference participants to submit a one-page abstract on the conference theme and indicate their preference for an oral or poster presentation by October 15, 2012. Notification of acceptance will be transmitted by November 15, 2012.

The conference theme is managing groundwater quality to support competing human and ecological needs and will focus on sustainable management and protection of groundwater quality in an effort to meet the needs of both human and ecological systems. This challenge is magnified by stresses on water resources changing with climatic conditions.      


Session Topics Include:

  • Aquifer-scale water quality and geochemical mass balances
  • Water quality at the groundwater-surface interface
  • Ecological links with groundwater quality
  • Urban groundwater systems
  • Groundwater quality in the developing world
  • Geogenic groundwater contaminants (e.g., arsenic/fluoride)
  • And many more!  CLICK HERE for a listing of session topics.
