Barbara Mahler, Martin Sauter and myself are glad to invite you to submit an abstract to a session devoted to karst aquifers, which will be held in September in Montpellier during the 43rd IAH CONGRESS (http://www.60iah2016.org/en/ ).
Please find here below the details.
Session 8.05: Karst aquifers
Increasing stress on water resources due to increasing demand and decreasing groundwater recharge following climate change effects emphasized the need for alternative groundwater resources, among which karst aquifers play a major role. The latest results on the findings from karst groundwater research are increasingly studied and this session will provide the opportunity to present the state of the art on karst hydrogeology with an emphasis on the techniques and methodologies to enhance and manage the resources.
Abstracts on the following topics are welcome: innovative methodologies (flow and quality monitoring, tracing experiments, temperature monitoring, hydrogeophysical techniques ...), interaction of groundwater and surface water flow , solute transport (fate and transport of contaminants, contaminants as tracers, sediment transport, etc), modelling techniques, water management including active management. Submissions on case studies especially on Mediterranean karst systems are welcome.
The link to the abstract submission is http://www.60iah2016.org/en/abstract-submission-guideline
The deadline is 28 February 2016.
Feel free to disseminate this call of abstracts to your colleagues.
Barbara, Martin and JC
