Advances in Isotope Hydrology and its Role in Sustainable Water Resources Management

International Symposium IAEA

- International Symposium on Advances in Isotope Hydrology and its Role in Sustainable Water Resources Management

- Lieu et date : Vienna, Austria 21/25 May 2007

- Organisateur

International Atomic Energy Agency IAEA

- Presentation

  • The quadrennial IAEA isotope hydrology symposia provide an international forum for a comprehensive review of the state of the art and recent advances in this field. The symposia also facilitate the transfer of information, knowledge and interactions between developed and developing countries.
  • Isotopes are increasingly being used to address many of the challenges in sustainable water resources management. The integration of these tools with classical methods and spatial information technologies has been growing rapidly over the past several years. These have provided unsurpassed capabilities to apply nuclear and geochemical techniques in complex hydrological systems.

- Objectives

The main objectives of this symposium are to :

    • Review the state of the art in isotope hydrology
    • Outline recent developments in the application of isotope techniques for water resources management
    • Identify future trends and developments for research and applications

- Topics

The IAEA welcomes high-quality contributions that demonstrate the application of isotopes as an integrated part of water resources science and management practices, particularly in the following areas :

    • Analytical developments
    • Moisture Isotopes in the Biosphere and Atmosphere
    • Rivers and surface water
    • Development of deep groundwater resources
    • Isotope hydrology and ecosystems
    • Urbanization and water resources management
    • Water management in dry land agriculture and irrigation systems
    • Integration with economic, social and cultural aspects
    • Research frontiers and innovative applications
