Wednesday 27th February 2013

The Birmingham and Midland Institute

The Hydrological Group of the Geological Society is convening a one-day meeting on the subject of Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems.

Groundwater dependent ecosystems (GDEs) face multiple pressures related to public water supply, intensive agricultural land-use and land management practices, and pollution from industrial and household waste. Since the implementation of the Water Framework Directive significant effort has been put into characterising GDEs and assessing the threats to them. However, these threats may change under future environmental change.

This meeting will aim to present current scientific research in addition to addressing issues around characterisation, conceptualisation, monitoring, modelling, and management within the context of environmental change. Abstracts are welcomed for oral presentations or posters, which consider any of these aspects. Abstracts that bridge the hydrogeological and ecological disciplines are particularly encouraged.

Abstracts (<200 words) should be e-mailed to the convenors Chris Jackson (crja@bgs.ac.uk) and James Sorensen (jare1@bgs.ac.uk) by 15th December 2012.

Registration details and the meeting schedule will be posted in due course on the Hydrogeological Group’s pages of the Geological Society web site.

Benchmarks will be designed so that stakeholders can determine http://essaydragon.com/ whether students at each grade are on track to be prepared for college or careers
