The NovCare 2015 International Conference (Novel Methods for Subsurface Characterization and Monitoring: From Theory to Practice) will take place May 19-21, 2015 at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas, a delightful college town in the central United States. This conference, organized by the Kansas Geological Survey, Michigan State University, the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research, and the University of Tübingen, is the fourth 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, and Leipzig again in 2013.
NovCare 2015 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.
The six thematic categories of NovCare 2015 are (1) integrated characterization of the unsaturated and saturated zones, (2) characterization at the interface (stream-aquifer interactions, coastal settings, etc.), (3) opportunistic characterization (natural/anthropogenic stimuli and tracers of opportunity), (4) new tools for watershed characterization, (5) geotechnical site characterization, and (6) long-term monitoring.
We cordially invite you to participate in the conference and present your work, in the form of poster and/or oral presentations.
