HydroEco 2009 : 2nd International Multidisciplinary Conference on Hydrology and Ecology

Vienna, Austria 20-23 april 2009

Objectifs

Many ecological systems owe their existence to physical/chemical properties of groundwater and surface water, and can be damaged if water flow or water properties are changed by anthropogenic or natural processes.

The ecological systems may be
* the terrestrial ecosystems we see every day, such as the riparian systems along the rivers, and wetlands found in headwaters as well as in low land areas or
* the subsurface ecological systems that maintain the groundwater that sustains so many people.

The goals of the conference are
(1) to provide information that will help that interactions between groundwater, surface water and ecology are better understood, measured, simulated, and managed, and
(2) to improve the technological basis for policy decisions (including WFD implementation) related to the reconstruction of ecologically valuable environments and the use of water resources in these environments.

Thèmes

Session A : Interactions between surface water, hyporheic zone, saturated and unsaturated groundwater
Session B : Connections between ecology and groundwater recharge and
Session C : Plant-groundwater interactions
Session H : Bio-indicators of groundwater and surface water quality
Session S : Special Session on the implementation of WFD, with particular relevance to Groundwater and Surface water dependent terrestrial Ecosystems
