G³⁶⁰ Presents at the NGWA Conference on Fractured Rock and Groundwater

Members of the G³⁶⁰ group are presenting at the NGWA Conference on Fractured Rock and Groundwater this week, held in Burlington, VT. This conference focuses on improved outcomes for groundwater remediation and examines what is needed to construct a sufficiently robust conceptual site model (CSM).

G³⁶⁰ Principal Investigator, Dr. Jessica Meyer (@HawkeyeHydroGeo), gave the keynote address to kick off the conference, titled “Do You Know Where Your Aquitards Are? A Case for Hydraulically Calibrated Geology as the Foundation for Robust CSMs of Contaminated Fractured Rock Systems”.

Talks will be presented by three other G³⁶⁰ members throughout the conference:
Senior Research Scientist, Dr. Pat Quinn:
Improving Hydraulic Aperture Estimations to Inform Discrete Fracture Network Models

Senior Research Engineer & Hydrogeologist, Steven Chapman:
Evaluation of High Resolution Methods for Contaminant and Flux Distributions in Igneous / Metamorphic Rock Settings

MSc Candidate, Sam Jacobson:
Direct Mass Flux Measurements for 1,4-Dioxane From an Industrial Site in a Karst Aquifer

G³⁶⁰ will be co-hosting the NovCare 2019 international conference at the University of Waterloo – May 28-31, 2019

The G360 Institute for Groundwater Research is excited to announce we will be co-hosting the NovCare 2019 International Conference (Novel Methods for Subsurface Characterization and Monitoring: From Theory to Practice) taking place at the Federation Hall and Conference Centre of the University of Waterloo on May 28 – 31, 2019.

NovCare 2019 is an excellent forum for exchanging ideas and experiences related to the challenges of subsurface characterization and monitoring, focusing on two main topics:

  • Interdisciplinary approaches to monitoring multiscale dynamic processes: Near real time data for decision making and modeling.
  • Data fusion from satellites, drones, and terrestrial sensing systems: Combining data from multiple platforms and emerging sensor technology to enhance site characterization.

Call for abstracts: the G360 group encourages all to participate in this important conference. Abstracts are due March 15th, 2019. Additional information and abstract submission requirements can be viewed on the official NovCare 2019 website.
