Every year for the past 13 years, EBTAG has hosted an annual workshop. Our workshops have both oral and poster presentations, and an optional fieldtrip. This year, we will follow our usual format with a one-day workshop followed by a half-day fieldtrip.
Registration: Cost will be $10/person at the door to cover facilities and refreshments. Please pre-register online to save time waiting in line.
Workshop Theme: "The Need for a Modern Ground Water Model for the Santa Fe Basin"
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 the workshop theme for each year, but we 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.
Optional Field Trip, September 16, 2015: "Interstate Stream Commission Santa Fe Paired Basin Study" (no cost to participants)
The paired basin study in the Upper Santa Fe River watershed following forest restoration is successfully measuring water budget components in a treated and untreated basin. The paired basin study was established to investigate questions that have arisen with regards to changes in water yield from forest treatments. Precipitation, stream flow, soil moisture, chloride concentrations in precipitation and stream flow are measured to quantify the water budget components. Amy Lewis will take field trip participants to the paired basins and discuss the results of the ongoing investigation.
More details will be posted closer to the fieldtrip date.
