We would like to draw your attention to a technical session on cold
regions hydrogeology planned for the 39th IAH Congress in Niagara
Falls, Canada from September 16 to 21, 2012.
4a-7 Cold Regions Hydrogeology
The hydrogeology of cold-regions is undergoing rapid changes as a result
of climate change. The state of these systems is strongly influenced by
both seasonal ground ice and perennially frozen ground (permafrost),
both of which act as impermeable subsurface layers.
However, the global extent of ground ice is decreasing with warming land
surface temperatures, which affects the groundwater flow regime and its
connection with surface water systems. This session focuses on
groundwater research in arctic, high elevation and/or periglacial
environments, and includes subtopics in field and laboratory based
studies, numerical modeling approaches, and coupling of climate with
Everyone working in this rapidly developing research area is encouraged
to submit an abstract. Deadline is March 15, 2012.
Details about abstract submission, other technical sessions, and this
conference in general can be found on:
We hope to see you all there in Niagra Falls!
