IAH groundwater Conference: Characterisation and Management of Groundwater in Limestones
Limestones are the dominant rock type in Ireland, comprising about 50% of the island. The 40th Annual International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH) Irish Group Groundwater Conference: Characterisation and Management of Groundwater in Limestones, will be held online over two half-days on Monday 19 and Tuesday 20 October, 2020.
The focus of the conference this year is not only on the pure limestones (karst) but also the impure limestones (such as the “Calp”). Given its prominence in the Irish landscape, limestone interacts with all aspects of hydrogeology.
The conference sessions aim to provide insights into these important interactions such as those with water resources protection and management, contamination, ecology and surface water, as well as practical characterisation and investigation techniques.
There will be a total of 14 presentations over the two half-days, from consultants, academics and state agencies. It as an online event, and it will be hosted through Zoom.
Day 1 will run from 13:30 to 17:30 and Day 2 from 09:30 to 13:00.
Registration is free online through Eventbrite. Bound copies of the conference proceedings can be ordered in advance for €35 through Eventbrite when you register. The proceedings will also be available as a PDF on the IAH Ireland website.
