A high-resolution global-scale groundwater model

Submitted by Celine Dondeynaz on 23 March, 2015 - 09:53

Abstract. Groundwater is the world's largest accessible source of fresh water. It plays a vital role in satisfying basic needs for drinking water, agriculture and industrial activities. During times of drought groundwater sustains baseflow to rivers and wetlands, thereby supporting ecosystems. Most global-scale hydrological models (GHMs) do not include a groundwater flow component, mainly due to lack of geohydrological data at the global scale.

SARM2010 - International Conference on Transboundary Aquifers: Challenges and New Directions

Submitted by Celine Dondeynaz on 22 November, 2010 - 11:20
When: 
Start 06/12/2010 (All day) End 08/12/2010 (All day)

This event marks the end of Phase I of the UNESCO-IHP ISARM Project (2000-2010) and the start of Phase II. The Conference will provide the opportunity to present an update of the world inventory of transboundary aquifers.
ISARM2010 will bring together leading international transboundary aquifer management experts to discuss new concepts, approaches and technologies for dealing with transboundary aquifer problems within various contexts in both developed and developing countries. Exchange of ideas will seek to provide indications for new directions in transboundary aquifer management, as well as draw recommendations for the formulation of new policies and implementation elements such as guidelines and educational tools.
