Hydrogeology of fissured and karstic aquifers, Session HS30 at the EGU 2005 Assembly

Dates: From 24 Apr, 2005 till 29 Apr, 2005
Location: Vienna, Austria

Dear colleague,

We would like to invite you to attend and contribute to the session:
HS30, Hydrogeology of fissured and karstic aquifers, which is part of the 2005 Assembly of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) held in Vienna, Austria,April 24-29th, 2005.

The Abstract Deadline is January 21st, 2005, and abstracts should be submitted through the EGU website at:

General information about the meeting is available at:

Event information "HS30, Hydrogeology of fissured and karstic aquifers":

Fissured and karstic rocks host some of the most prolific aquifers. About one quarter of the world's population is largely or entirely dependent on karst groundwater. Unfortunately, these important groundwater resources are highly vulnerable to contamination due to the rapid transport of pollutants in solution conduits. Effective strategies for the management and protection of groundwater resources in karst areas, therefore, must be based on a sound understanding of flow, transport, and reaction processes in these aquifers as well as on reliable methods for hydrogeological characterisation, modelling, and risk assessment.
This session seeks contributions related to all aspects of the hydrogeology of fissured and karstic aquifers including karst development, conceptual models of fissured and karstic aquifers, characterisation and modelling techniques as well as methods for risk assessment and water management in karst terrains. We particularly welcome papers that provide links between field data and innovative conceptual or numerical models.

We look forward to your contribution, and to meet with you in Vienna.

Best regards,
the conveners:
