The Geological Society, Burlington House, London

25th-26th April 2018

A two day conference on the Hydrogeology of the Chalk convened by the Hydrogeological Group of the Geological Society (supported by the Contaminated Land Group) covering current practice and future challenges on the characterisation and management of Chalk aquifers in the UK and elsewhere.

The conference will focus on applied science and the management of groundwater resources and quality in the Chalk aquifer.

Abstracts, both oral and poster based, are sought for sessions including geology, flow processes, developments in groundwater modelling, regulation and management, extreme events including flooding, climate change and drought, nitrate, saline intrusion, emerging contaminants and more.

Scientific papers should have a clear beneficial conclusion (i.e. not purely work in progress) and all papers should be relevant to the specific peculiarities of chalk hydrogeology!
