At the closing ceremony of IAH 49 held in China, the groundwater torch was passed to South Africa to host IAH 50. We congratulate the conference organisers on hosting a successful conference under the trying circumstances posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Congress theme for IAH 50 is Groundwater: A Matter of Scale. This theme combines scientific advances through local to global scale experiments and case studies, with those extending over various temporal scales.
On 25 August 2022, the GWD Young Professionals hosted an event in celebration of women's month titled "Women in Hydrogeology".
The event was hosted by the ever sparkling Ms. Annalisa Vicente (GWD Young Professionals Portfolio) with the following (just as accomplished and engaging) Panelists:
