10 Hydrogeology of Arid and Semi-Arid Environments

Chair: Randolf Rausch, Christoph Schüth

Saturday, 09:00-11:30, Händel-Saal

In most arid and semi-arid countries groundwater is more and more becoming the ultimate geo-resource, as it is essential for livelihood and human activities. Dependency on this hidden asset has increasingly been recognized both in highly developed and developing countries. However, this precious resource is exposed to overexploitation due to a growing population as well as industrial and agricultural demands. Aside these socio-economical requirements groundwater resources are threatened by climate variability and changes. The session is launched to understand the dynamics of groundwater resources under changing climate and hydrological conditions as well as to address the challenges in groundwater use. The session will serve as a platform for the exchange of experiences, ideas and concepts on the hydrogeology of arid and semi-arid environments. It focuses on the assessment of the water cycle and its interactions, the assessment of groundwater resources, economic processes, and aspects of water resources engineering and management. The session is part of the activities of the FH-DGGV working group “Hydrogeology of Arid and Semi-Arid Environments”. Contributions are welcome on all topics in Hydrogeology of Arid and Semi-Arid Environments.
