Integrated Groundwater Management Project​

IGM Project Review Workshop 2023

The NSF EPSCoR Track-2 IGM Project Annual Meeting, titled ‘A Framework for Harnessing Big Hydrological Datasets for Integrated Groundwater Management’, recently convened virtually. This event gathered esteemed researchers and industry professionals from across the nation, providing a platform for a wealth of insightful discussions on a range of topics. These encompassed data downscaling, groundwater modeling, the application of machine learning, and the environmental impacts on groundwater quality, to name a few. A distinguished review panel was in attendance, contributing valuable feedback and presenting a comprehensive review report to the project’s PIs. For those seeking to further their understanding of the subjects discussed, a compilation of the poster presentations shared during the event is provided below. The table details the titles of these presentations along with the names of their respective presenters*.
