The NovCare 2017 International Conference (Novel Methods for Subsurface Characterization and Monitoring: From Theory to Practice) will take place June 6-9, 2017 at the main campus of the Technical University of Dresden in Dresden, Germany, a town with a famous historical centre. This conference, organized by the Technical University of Dresden, the Kansas Geological Survey and the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research, is the fifth conference in a series that has proven to be an excellent forum for exchanging ideas and experiences related to the challenges of subsurface characterization and monitoring. Previous conferences in the series were in Leipzig in 2009, Cape Cod in 2011, Leipzig again in 2013 and Kansas in 2015.
NovCare 2017 will again provide 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.
NovCare 2017 will focus on two main topics:
- Environmental sensors at all scales: How to combine information from remote sensing, ground-based geophysics, direct-push-based methods and point sensor systems?
- Benchmarking models with real-world data: How to get high-quality data in the field and how to use these data for reliable model predictions?
Following keynote Topics are planned:
- Flow and transport in the saturated and unsaturated zone
- Regional numerical modeling
- Urban water cycle
- Water scarcity
- Hydrogeochemical field techniques
- Remote sensing by Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)
- Benchmarking models with real-world data – Lauswiesen Case study
We cordially invite you to participate in the conference and present your work, in the form of poster and/or oral presentations.
