Groundwater and Society Workshop

We are looking for Session Leads to organize teams and advance working papers for a journal special edition

Location: Pennsylvania State University

Dates: May 8 – 10, 2024  

Session proposals due: January 31, 2024

Product: A journal special edition in ERL


Potential topics

  • Agriculture, irrigation, and common pool problems in groundwater
  • Drinking water quality and equity issues in water supply
  • Approaches to interdisciplinarity – empiricism, models, teams, and scales
  • Model uncertainty, evaluation, and applications to human systems research

The Groundwater and Society Workshop will advance research in the interdisciplinary study of human natural resource decisions and groundwater systems. This workshop will bring together expertise in physical macro-scale groundwater modeling, natural resource economics, and multi-sector dynamics. The goal of gathering researchers from these different disciplines is to scope the current state of groundwater studies in human-natural systems research, and to identify important open questions, key next steps, and grand challenges in this interdisciplinary space.

Please contact us or sign up here if you would like to be involved or would like to receive communication about the workshop.
