AGU-SEG Hydrogeophysics Workshop: Imaging the Critical Zone
Stanford, California, 24-27 July, 2017
Abstract submission deadline: February 23, 2017
The field of hydrogeophysics employs geophysical methods to determine parameters and monitor processes associated with water resources, the water cycle, and contaminant transport to inform hydrogeological studies. All of critical zone science could benefit from the temporal and spatial information provided by hydrogeophysics; however, to date the two fields have evolved largely in parallel. In this workshop, we propose to develop a framework for advancing both hydrogeophysics and CZ science through communicating and coordinating research agendas. New insights into CZ processes will be gained through the enhanced use of hydrogeophysics, and the detailed interdisciplinary observations made in CZ studies will provide opportunities for advancing hydrogeophysical methods.
Specifically, in this workshop, we aim to:
bring together hydrogeophysicists and other CZ scientists to inform and exchange ideas,
identify the critical areas of future research to optimize the use of hydrogeophysics for CZ science, and
write a white paper identifying research focus areas for CZ-geophysics.
