Event Description

Groundwater and surface water interactions are intrinsically linked to ecohydrology. Interactions between groundwater and surface water influence quality and quantity of the receiving environment, aquatic habitats, and ecological receptors. Understanding the interactions between groundwater and surface water is challenging in BC because these interactions can be complex, changing with time and space. Studies and projects that address groundwater/surface water interactions often face the additional challenge of lack of data for groundwater, specifically for understanding connectivity.

About the Event

For many baseline or water balance projects, groundwater/surface water interactions are estimated through modelling; however, data are essential for model validation and calibration, and for bridging the nexus between groundwater, surface water, and ecology. This presentation will focus on successful field techniques and applications of monitoring groundwater/surface water interactions and applied ecohydrology.
