2012 NGWA Ground Water Summit: Innovate and Integrate

Advances in the Study and Management of Complicated Hydrologic Systems

Tuesday, May 8, 2012: 1:10 p.m.-2:30 p.m.
Terrace Room A-C (Hyatt Regency Orange County)
Over the last decade, hydrologists have been challenged by needs to address hydrologic problems complicated, for example, by their size and heterogeneity, complexity of interacting processes, extreme human forcings, and climatic stresses. An impressive array of new research ideas, technological advances, and novel modeling innovations has emerged to address these needs. The scope of this session is intentionally broad, bringing together some of the foremost innovators and generational thinkers.
