Scope Groundwater resources are a vital source of regional water supply under climate change conditions. 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 resource 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 applying near-surface investigation and modeling on groundwater resource assessment. We welcome studies on numerical modeling, spatiotemporal analysis, data fusion, and field research using hydrogeological, geophysical, geochemical, and remote sensing approaches. We also include investigations of groundwater contamination transport and remediation, geothermal energy exchange, groundwater microorganisms, hot springs, volcanic hydrology, and environmental disaster evaluation and prevention. We especially encourage pilot groundwater management studies that solve multi-scale and interdisciplinary problems.
