ECHN Discussion Panel

Get to the point – Experiences and perspective on hydrogeological modelling: the point of view of modelers and users

During the FLOWPATH Conference, the discussion among young hydrogeologists will concern the use of modelling tools for groundwater management and planning. This will be the topic of a round table discussion organized by the Early Career hydrogeologists of the ECHN-Italy group

The event, entitled “Dritti al punto – Esperienze e prospettive nella modellazione idrogeologica: il punto di vista del modellista e dell’utilizzatore” (“Get to the point – Experiences and perspective on hydrogeological modelling: the point of view of modelers and users”) aims at discussing about:

  1. the motivations and objectives of adopting a modeling approach for groundwater management;
  2. the methodologies and critical issues encountered while defining a conceptual model and implementing a numerical model;
  3. the expectations and usability of model results;
  4. the interpretation and use of model results from the point of view of different professional figures.

To achieve these purposes, the members of the ECHN-Italy group will trigger a discussion involving the audience and invited relevant speakers from the academic world, the private sector and the public administration.

A detailed program of the event (in Italian) is available here.

Participation of young hydrogeologists is encouraged to get the point about the future of hydrogeology!
