CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

This event is the third of well-attended aquifer conferences held by the Hydrogeological Group of the Geological Society and supported by the Contaminated Land Group

This two-day conference will focus on applied science and the management of groundwater resources and quality in the sandstone aquifers in the UK and elsewhere. Several keynote speakers will be attending from the UK and abroad.

Abstracts for either oral presentations (15 minutes long) or posters (A0 size with a summary PowerPoint slide) are sought, covering any aspect of sandstone hydrogeology, including the topics listed below.
