XXXIII Sil Conference

Science for sustainable freshwater use. Our planet is under pressure due to increased demand for freshwater. The availability and suitability of water resources are threatened by human influences, directly through globally unbalancing the slow and fast water cycles and impairing water quality, and indirectly through the adverse effects of climate change. Many freshwater ecosystems are deteriorating in quantity and quality. As a result, an increasing number of people are chronically short of water. In this context, limnology must represent the answer to the planetary water crisis as we need more science and more scientists to urgently face sustainable and effective freshwater recovery. This need can be satisfied only by improving our knowledge in Limnological Sciences and the awareness of what science can do for more sustainable use of freshwater ecosystems. Thus, as water scientists we have two missions: 1) to improve our knowledge of freshwater ecosystem functioning, and 2) to make our knowledge a tool handy for environmental managers and friendly for people. We are confident that this congress will help us as to accomplish these missions as scientists and as human beings.

A special session “Groundwater dependent ecosystems” will host hydrogeologists , biologists and ecologists with the intention of making the session truly multidisciplinary.

Organized by International Society of Limnology.

XIII Congress of Hydrogeology ALHSUD 2016

Unidos trabajando por el agua del planeta (States working for the planet’s water). Este congreso será un foro para el intercambio de ideas, conocimiento de experiencias y técnicas a través de estudios, investigaciones y aplicaciones relacionadas con el presente y futuro de nuestra mayor riqueza natural: el agua subterránea. La demanda cada vez mayor de los recursos hídricos subterráneos, unido a los impactos de variabilidad climática recientes y la contaminación del medio ambiente, nos plantea el reto de proteger y explotar este recurso de forma responsable y sostenible en el tiempo, con el fin de garantizar un futuro a las generaciones venideras. En este escenario Latinoamérica, que cuenta con uno de los más grandes recursos subterráneos del planeta tendrá el reto de proponer alternativas que sirvan en beneficio tanto a la comunidad que representa, como de ejemplo para otros países.

Contaremos con las presentaciones de las normatividades y legislaciones que están siendo analizadas y otras que ya se han impuesto en nuestros países latinoamericanos. Encontraremos la mejor oportunidad de conocer aciertos y errores sobre las leyes que fueron emanadas para normar y administran el agua subterránea. Entre ellas Uruguay con su ley recién aplicada, Chile en discusión del Código del Agua, Colombia con el recientemente implantado Plan Nacional de Aguas Subterráneas (PNASUB), México con la discusión de la Ley General de Aguas Nacionales que regresó a comisiones en el Congreso del estado, etc.

Organised by La Asociación Latinoamericana de Hidrología Subterránea para el desarrollo ALHSUD en coordinación con la Asociación Geohidrológica Mexicana AGM, y la Asociación Internacional de Hidrogeólogos AIH/IAH (Capítulo México), Invitan al I Congreso Mexicano de Hidrogeología.

Groundwater: managing our hidden asset

A two-day conference to celebrate the International Association of Hy-drogeologists 60th anniversary and the Geological Society Year of Wa-ter, hosted by the University of Birmingham. The conference will incorporate the Ineson Lecture and re-launch of “Groundwater our Hidden Asset”, supported by the Groundwater Forum. The conference has four broad topic areas: groundwater and energy, groundwater resources, groundwater and ecosystem services and groundwater quality with sub themes of groundwater valuation and natural capital, climate change, groundwater management and the Water Framework Directive.

Earlybird rate for members held open until conference registration closes!!

Due to the popularity of the conference, there is no need to increase the fee rates and the Early Bird rate for members of £220 will be held open until 5 September, the date at which registration for the conference will finally CLOSE. The venue is large and can accommodate many – we encourage your registration sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment, assist logistics for the organisers and enjoy a good conference with colleagues!.

Price: £220

43rd IAH Congress

Groundwater and Society. We are pleased to announce that IAH will meet in Montpellier, France in 2016. This congress will include a programme of invited presentations to reflect on the achievements of IAH and to look forward to the further development of IAH and hydrogeological science. This will be combined with the submission of abstracts for a conventional technical programme of parallel sessions and posters and post-congress field visits to some very attractive locations in the surrounding French countryside, and the normal IAH meetings.

It’s highly appropriate that our French colleagues, who were so instrumental in establishing the Association should host this anniversary meeting just as they did in in 2006 in Dijon. Moreover, at their invitation, the German National Chapter, who also played an essential role in setting IAH on its way, will join the French Chapter in organising the meeting.

Organised by The French and German National Chapters of IAH.
