NS006:
Hydrogeophysical Methods for Groundwater Evaluation, Management, and Modeling





Session ID#: 25560

Session Description:
Effective, sustainable management of groundwater resources requires accurate knowledge of aquifer characteristics and hydrologic processes including recharge, groundwater surface-water interaction and the impacts of pumping. In this session we focus on the application of hydrogeophysical methods including borehole, surface, airborne, and(or) remote sensing techniques to characterize aquifer boundaries and hydrostratigraphy and quantify hydrologic properties and processes in support of groundwater modeling. Of interest are examples related to all aspects of groundwater characterization and management including, but not limited to, development of hydrostratigraphic models, assessment of aquifer properties, evaluation of groundwater quantity and quality, and monitoring of natural/managed processes.
