The Groundwater and Society Workshop will advance research in the interdisciplinary study of human natural resource decisions and groundwater systems. This workshop will bring together expertise in physical macro-scale groundwater modeling, natural resource economics, and multi-sector dynamics. The goal of gathering researchers from these different disciplines is to scope the current state of groundwater studies in human-natural systems research, and to identify important open questions, key next steps, and grand challenges in this interdisciplinary space.

Please contact organizers or sign up here if you would like to be involved or would like to receive communication about the workshop.

Potential topics:

  • Agriculture, irrigation, and common pool problems in groundwater
  • Drinking water quality and equity issues in water supply
  • Approaches to interdisciplinarity – empiricism, models, teams, and scales
  • Model uncertainty, evaluation, and applications to human systems research

Event organizers are looking for session leads to organize teams and advance working papers for a journal special edition. 

  • Location: Pennsylvania State University
  • Dates: May 8 – 10, 2024  
  • Session proposals due: January 31, 2024
  • Product: A journal special edition in ERL


This workshop is funded by the Program for Coupled Human and Earth Systems (PCHES), a DOE MultiSector Dynamics project. Limited travel funds for Early Career Researchers will be available from the NSF GLASSNET project, including international travel
