While groundwater is used across the country, it is particularly important in the American Southwest, where surface water resources may be insufficient to meet daily needs. The National Ground Water Association (NGWA) is hosting a conference that will focus on groundwater availability, use, policy, and management in southwestern states of Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Texas, and Utah and surrounding environs. Transboundary aquifers that interact with the Rio Grande/Rio Bravo and other points along the southwest border are also attracting increased interest as the water resources of the region are threatened by increased demand.
The purpose of this conference is to further discussion on the role of groundwater in the region and introduce emerging research and initiatives on sustaining local water resources. Additionally, understanding how the transboundary aquifers respond to changes in climate and demand will facilitate effective resource management.
Abstracts are solicited on all aspects related to groundwater in these states, including, but not limited to:
Titles should be limited to 100 characters or less and abstracts should be limited to 300 words or less.
No names or titles should be included in the abstract text. Names will be automatically hidden during the abstract review process and will be automatically inserted and properly formatted upon publication.
Presenting authors will be automatically informed of the unique ID numbers and passwords assigned to their abstracts. Abstracts may be viewed and modified at any time between submission and the deadline, using the assigned ID# and password.
