Conference on Hydrogeology of Arid Environments

Conference

Hannover, Germany 14-17 mars 2012

Organisation

Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) of Germany ; Fachsektion Hydrogeologie in der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Geowissenschaften (FH-DGG) ; Technische Universität Darmstadt.

Présentation

The present conference is launched to understand the dynamics of groundwater resources under changing climate and hydrological conditions as well as to address the challenges in groundwater use. The conference will serve as a platform for the exchange of experiences, ideas and concepts on the hydrogeology of arid environments. It focuses on the assessment of the water cycle and its interactions, the assessment of groundwater resources, economic processes, and aspects of water resources engineering and management.
