Welcome to the 2nd Conference on Hydrogeophysics

Over the last three decades, hydrogeophysics has emerged as an important sub-discipline in hydrogeology and ecohydrology. It involves investigations of the structure and processes of the subsurface environment, at different spatiotemporal scales, by identifying key properties and state variables related to water flow and solute transport.

After a successful first Hydrogeophysics parallel conference in Bordeaux 2021, we are happy to continue the discussion around water, environment, agriculture and natural resources in a rapidly changing climate and their implications to build a resilient society. The Hydrogeophysics parallel conference aims to connect the science with the public sectors and governmental entities.

Topics

The technical programme of this year’s Hydrogeophysics conference will provide a comprehensive overview of the state of hydrogeophysical research (tools and theoretical advances) for investigating dynamic processes in subsurface settings regarding various environmental issues, and will allow identification of challenges and ways forward within an integrated cross disciplinary framework.

Contribute to the Technical Programme by submitting your abstracts before 25 April 2023.
