Geosyntec Professionals Among Presenters at 2012 International Association of Hydrogeologists Congress

Geosyntec engineers and scientists are among the presenters and session chairs this week at the 39th Annual International Association of Hydrogeologists Congress, under way in Niagara Falls, Ontario, through September 21.

Delegates and attendees at the 2012 congress will offer more than 750 oral and poster presentations that address the technical and social aspects of how the hydrogeology practice adapts to global change. Different tracks throughout the congress address energy and climate change, karst hydrogeology, ecohydrology, groundwater management, groundwater quality, and general hydrogeology.

Geosyntec professionals will be among the delegates and six are scheduled to present platform talks. In addition, Associate Jamey Rosen (Toronto) is chair of the General Hydrogeology: Data Management & Analysis session. Representing Geosyntec are:
