SGM 2022: Symposium «Hydrology and Hydrogeology»

Venue

Université de Lausanne
Géopolis
Quartier Mouline
1015 Lausanne

This symposium is part of the 20th Swiss Geoscience Meeting from 18 to 20 November 2022. As part of this year’s Swiss Geoscience Meeting theme on geosystem transitions and resilience, we would like to particularly encourage contributions that explore hydrological and hydrogeological processes under transient conditions: how do processes respond to changes, how do we define tipping points in hydro(geo)logical systems, how (well) can we predict responses, and what are the implications for the environment and society, i.e. for management and policy making?

Hydrological and hydrogeological processes vary greatly across spatial and temporal scales. Understanding, monitoring and modelling the diversity and similarity of these processes is still a significant ongoing challenge for research and water management, in Switzerland and globally.

As part of this year’s Swiss Geoscience Meeting theme on geosystem transitions and resilience, we would like to particularly encourage contributions that explore hydrological and hydrogeological processes under transient conditions: how do processes respond to changes, how do we define tipping points in hydro(geo)logical systems, how (well) can we predict responses, and what are the implications for the environment and society, i.e. for management and policy making?

The Hydrology and Hydrogeology session is expected to share a keynote and its poster session with the Limnology session to foster an integrated perspective of the water resource.

Convenors: Sandra Pool (SGHL, Eawag), Peter Molnar (CHy, ETH Zurich), Daniel Hunkeler (SGH, University of Neuchâtel), Christophe Lienert (CHy, LAINAT), Nadav Peleg (University of Lausanne), Michael Sinreich (SGH, FOEN), Massimiliano Zappa (SGHL, WSL), Sanja Hosi (CHy, SCNAT)
