The activities of the EuroGeoSurveys’ Water Resources Expert Group (WREG) including GeoERA groundwater were presented 2.5.2019 at the UNECE resource management week in the UN Palais de Nations in Geneva – see the brief presentation here: https://www.slideshare.net/KlausHinsby/activities-of-the-water-resources-expert-group-wreg?from_m_app=ios
In addition we have contributed to establishing a new global working group on groundwater and groundwater classification within the UNFC similar to the existing WG classifications on minerals and energy etc. The new working group on groundwater is chaired by Prof. Marco Petitta from univ. Sapienza in Rome representing the European Federation of Geologists, who was also leading the KINDRA project on classification of European groundwater research and the development of the European Inventory of Groundwater Research EIGR
Today is the International Geoethics Day.
You can read more about this important initiative on the website: http://www.geoethics.org and in a special issue of Annals of Geophysics: http://www.geoethics.org/geoethics-ag2017
Here you can also read a paper: https://www.annalsofgeophysics.eu/index.php/annals/article/download/7500/6869 – how geoethics are important concepts of the GeoERA program on sustainable use of subsurface resources
Welcome to my GeoERA Groundwater blog – please visit the GeoERA website to learn more about the four themes geoenergy, groundwater, raw materials and the common GeoERA Information platform EGDI as well as the 15 projects of GeoERA.
I’m Klaus Hinsby, a senior research hydrogeologist at the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS), GEUS website, and the theme coordinator of GeoERA Groundwater – GeoERA Groundwater.
I’m currently the chairman of the Water Resources Expert Group of the EuroGeoSurveys, EGS website, and the Danish chapter of the International Association of Hydrogeologists, IAH. In this blog I will frequently post news on the four GeoERA groundwater projects: HOVER ; RESOURCE ; TACTIC ; VOGERA and relevant information related to the objectives of the GeoERA groundwater projects – e.g. the protection of the quantity and quality of groundwater resources and climate change impacts on water resources, ecosystems and the built environment.
