Current Perspectives on Biogeochemistry and Socioeconomics of Groundwater–Surface Water Interactions in the Gulf Coast Region

Panel Format Session: This session has been selected by the Program Committee to be an official panel. Panelists will be invited authors designated by the conveners. Learn more

Session ID#: 27027

Session Description:
The maintenance of the economic strength of the Gulf of Mexico relies heavily on the natural resources of the region. Numerous studies have identified groundwater as an important vector of nutrients, gases, heavy metals, and organic matter to surface water bodies. The goal of this session is to provide a platform for presenting current findings regarding the groundwater-surface water interaction specifically in the Gulf Coast Region. We invite contributions from a broad range of disciplines (e.g., coastal hydrogeology, marine biology, and social sciences) which provide new insights into the origin, alteration, and quantification of subsurface solutes, as well as their ecological and economic impacts on adjacent Gulf Coast water bodies. While special emphasis will be given to the ecological and economic impacts of material fluxes delivered by groundwater to coastal areas, we encourage participation from scientists studying material fluxes and transformations in the large estuaries along the Gulf Coast Region.
