About this Event

The 40th Annual IAH Irish Group Groundwater Conference: "Characterisation and Management of Groundwater in Limestones", will be held online over two half-days on Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th October, 2020.

We're running it as an online event this year, for the first time, because Covid means we can't hold it as our usual conference in Tullamore.

Day 1 will run from 13:30 to 17:30 and Day 2 from 09:30 to 13:00. Registration is free online through Eventbrite. Bound copies of the conference proceedings can be ordered in advance for €35 through Eventbrite when you register. The proceedings will also be available as a pdf on the IAH Ireland website.

You will receive a link to join the conference by email 1 week before the event starts.

Limestones are the dominant rock type in Ireland, comprising about 50% of the island. The focus of the conference this year is not only on the pure limestones (karst), but also the impure limestones (such as the “Calp”). Given its prominence in the Irish landscape, limestone interacts with all aspects of hydrogeology. The conference sessions aim to provide insights into these important interactions such as those with water resources protection and management, contamination, ecology and surface water, as well as practical characterisation and investigation techniques.

There will be a total of 14 presentations over the two half-days, from consultants, academics and state agencies. We're also planning an exhibitor's session at the end of Day 1, more details on this will follow.
