David S. Snipes/Clemson Hydrogeology Symposium



The 2015 Symposium will take place on March 26. Registration will open on December 1.


The info below is from the 2014 event.

On Thursday April 3, oral and poster presentations will take place at the Madren Center located on the Clemson University campus. The presentations will cover a diverse assortment of topics including characterization, monitoring, remediation and many others at various scales (lab to watershed). You can directly influence the content and tone of this event by submitting an abstract and giving a presentation of your work.

Abstracts are due March 1.

We are actively encouraging participants to propose theme sessions, solicit abstracts and moderate their session. Click here for more info.

The keynote speaker will be Carlos E. Molano, PE. Mr. Malano is the 2014 NGWA McEllhiney Lecturer. The title of his talk is Groundwater Spreadsheets: Efficient and Practical Resource for Solving Simple and Complex Flow, Pollution, and Environmental Problems.

There are two different field trips this year. One trip will make a traverse from Clemson to the Blue Ridge along Hwy 76 and the other trip will involve a riverside exploration of the Chattooga River. Sign up early as trip sizes are limited.

A geophyical workshop will be offered this year. In the afternoon, Stephen Moysey will present a workshop called Reconstructing the Earth: A Hands-On Overview of Cross-Borehole Tomographic Imaging. The cost of the workshop is included in the registration fee for the Symposium, but there are a limited number of seats. Please indicate your desire to attend when you register.

Several regulatory bodies or organizations currently accept this event and field trips for continuing education credits (CECs) or professional development hours (PDHs). If you attend both the day of presentations and a field trip you could earn up to 16 CECs or PDHs. Click for a list.

The registration cost for the event includes refreshments and lunch. Pre-registration ends on March 1. You can register online after that date and/or at the event (register at door: $160).

The post-Symposium mixer at the Geology Museum is made possible by the generosity of alumni and other sponsors.

The Clemson Hydrogeology Symposium is an on-going effort to engage and educate the hydrogeological community at large whether from industry or academia. Our primary focus is on geologic and hydrologic issues in the southeast US but it is not restricted to any geographic extent. Our long term goal has been to offer an opportunity for industry related projects to intermingle with academic research and bridge the gap that has traditionally separated these two endeavors.
