Karst sessions at the 2013 NGWA Groundwater Summit

Dates: From 28 Apr, 2013 till 02 May, 2013
Location: San Antonio, TX, USA

Registration deadline: 22 Oct, 2012

2013 NGWA Summit — The National and International Conference on Groundwater
San Antonio, Texas • April 28-May 2, 2013

Groundwater is a resource to be protected. It ignores political boundaries, transports contaminants, floods mine and construction sites, spins communities into an uproar, and can’t be found when you need it. Model, explore, characterize, bank, inject, extract, treat, and predict all your subsurface needs with everything groundwater at the 2013 NGWA Summit.

There will be three karst related sessions (maked in bold), among others:

  • Beyond the Phase II — Shifting from Investigation to Risk Management
  • Challenges for Groundwater-Based Public Water Supply Systems
  • Innovative Approaches for Investigating and Managing Karst Groundwater Resources
  • Challenges in Characterizing and Modeling Karst Aquifer Systems
  • Characterizing Biology with Water Quality in Karst: What Can It Tell Us About Aquifer Health
  • Discovering and Developing Water Supplies Through Coordinated Public and Private Efforts
  • Eliminating or Exploiting Environmental Fluctuations to Improve Hydraulic Characterization
  • Emerging Contaminants
  • Everything Aquifer Storage and Recovery
  • Finite Difference vs. Finite Element — Numerical Methods
  • Groundwater Dewatering and Control in Sensitive Environments
  • Groundwater Flow and Fractures
  • Groundwater-Related Issues in Developing Nations
  • Historical Hydrogeology
  • Hydraulic Fracturing and Protection of Groundwater Resources
  • Hydrogeologic Characterization and Environmental Issues at Mining Facilities
  • Impacts of Hydraulic Fracturing on Water Resources
  • Innovative Approaches for Investigating and Managing Karst Groundwater Resources
  • Integrated Groundwater Management: Best Practices for Managing Limited Supplies Under Different Policy and Legal Settings
  • Lessons Learned from a Decade of Groundwater Availability Modeling in Texas
  • Management of Fresh/Brackish Groundwater Resources: Tools, Innovations, and Applications
  • Mass Flux and Mass Discharge
  • Petroleum Hydrocarbons and Organic Chemicals in Ground Water: Prevention, Detection, and Remediation®
  • Public Policy and Scientific Management of Water Resources
  • Remote (and Not So Remote) Ways of Estimating Groundwater Use in Agriculture
  • Remote Sensing and Groundwater
  • Site Characterization and Management of Environmental Risks at Upstream Oil and Gas Fields
  • Stormwater and Urban Hydrogeology
  • Sustainable Solutions to Challenges to Groundwater
  • The Saga of Groundwater Monitoring Efforts in Tough Economic Times
  • The Texas Water Conservation and Technology Center
  • What Lies Beneath: Groundwater and Geophysics 

The abstract submission deadline is  October 22nd. Meeting information and abstract submission directions can be found at the conference website.
