About the workshop:
The 2nd international workshop on the “Impact of Groundwater in Earth system Models (IGEM)”, which will be held on Monday-Wednesday, March 18-20, 2019 at National Taiwan University (NTU) in central Taipei, Taiwan. This workshop is part of the bilateral (France and Taiwan) project, IGEM, with the objective to bring together experts in groundwater modeling, land surface model (LSM) development, interactions between groundwater and climate, and remote sensing applications on the measure of groundwater changes, to discuss the state of the art on the relationships between groundwater and the local/regional/global water cycle variabilities.
Previous workshop in Paris:
We aim at developing and tightening our links with international leaders in
groundwater modeling and observations, as well as changes in groundwater storage regionally and globally, and its links to the climate. To this end, in October 2016, we organized in Paris, France, the first international workshop on the “Impact of Groundwater in Earth system Models”, with the objective to bring together experts in groundwater modeling, land surface model development, land-atmosphere interactions, and remote sensing, to discuss the state of the art and perspectives on the
relationships between groundwater and the global water cycle variability. For three days, we gathered 28 speakers from all over the world, including very eminent specialists of groundwater modelling and characterization at the continental scales, with inspiring discussions on the best ways to bring climate models closer to Earth System Models, in which natural and human systems cannot be separated.
