Workshop Theme: "The Lower Santa Fe River and the Vision for Water Sustainability in Santa Fe County"
Optional Field Trip: “Hydrogeology of Groundwater-Fed Wetlands in the La Cienega Area” (May 21st, see below)
Every year for the past 11 years, EBTAG has hosted an annual workshop. Our two-day workshops consist of one day of both oral and poster presentaions, and another day for an optional fieldtrip. Abstracts submitted for technical presentations and posters for the workshop are generally about the Española Basin and surrounding watersheds, e.g. geology, hydrogeology, geochemistry, geophysics, hydrology, fluvial morphology, water quality, etc., that influence natural and anthropogenic impacts on surface and ground water resources. We especially encourage submission of abstracts related to our workshop theme for this year, but we will welcome abstracts on any aspect of geology, geophysics, hydrogeology, and hydrology pertaining directly or indirectly to the Española basin. Both technical and non-technical audiences may be present - so authors are encouraged to prepare posters or oral presentations with that in mind.
