An impressive lineup of noted hydrogeologists  will be presenting at this week’s NovCare 2019 International Conference organized by the University of Waterloo, Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, the Kansas Geological Survey and the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research.

“The NovCare conference is an outstanding platform for researchers and practitioners from all over the world to share research on innovative methods for characterization and monitoring of aquifers, soils, and watersheds” notes Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences and Conference Chair, Dave Rudolph.

NovCare 2019 (Novel Methods for Subsurface Characterization and Monitoring: From Theory to Practice) will take place May 28-31, 2019 at Federation Hall and Conference Centre. The conference is the sixth in a series,  and will focus on two main topics: 

  • Interdisciplinary approaches to monitoring multi-scale dynamic processes: Near real time data for decision making and modeling
  • Data fusion from satellites, drones, and terrestrial sensing

Keynote lectures include:
