The 39th IAH Congress in September 2012 will be an exciting conference and gathering of people interested in hydrogeology from around the world.

The 2012 Congress will allow the presentation of a wide variety of new and evolving hydrogeological issues and opportunities that include:

  • Energy and Climate Change
  • Groundwater Resource Analysis and Management
  • Groundwater / Surface Water Interaction (Ecohydrology)
  • Groundwater Quality
  • Karst Hydrogeology
  • General Hydrogeology and Geotechnique

Sub-themes are outlined in the Science Program (add hyper link to Science Program page). The conference organizers will be seeking abstracts and papers that fall under these themes.

A variety of field trips will be available to participants both on the mid-week field trip day as well as post conference.
