ScopeGroundwater resources serve as a vital source for regional water supply under the climate change condition. However, improper use of the available groundwater resources leads to serious environmental disasters such as land subsidence or seawater intrusion. Therefore, groundwater management is a key issue for groundwater resources conservation. Before applying any management practice, it is essential to accurately assess the groundwater system in multi-scales. In this session, we focus on the issues associated with the application of near-surface investigation and modeling on groundwater resources assessment. We welcome studies related to numerical modeling, spatiotemporal modeling, data fusion, and field investigation using hydrogeological approaches, geophysical approaches, geochemical approaches, and remote sensing. We also welcome the studies associated with groundwater contamination transport and remediation, geothermal energy exchange, groundwater microorganisms, hot spring, volcanic hydrology, and environmental disasters evaluation and prevention. We especially encourage the pilot groundwater management studies that solve multi-scale and interdisciplinary problems.
