On Friday 6 November
The theme of the 18th SGM Plenary Session is “Shaping Earth: From Planet Accretion To Microbes”.

On Saturday 7 November,
27 scientific symposia will cover cover the diverse spectrum of current research in geosciences, encompassing the lithosphere, the atmosphere and the anthroposphere.

Deadline for abstract submission is Friday, 21 August 2020.
Depending on the number and subject of abstracts submitted, proposed sessions may be canceled, merged or new ones created. Abstracts will be initially assigned to the session indicated by the authors at the time of abstract submission.

SGM 2020: Symposium «Hydrology and Hydrogeology»

This symposium is part of the 18th Swiss Geoscience Meeting from 6 to 7 November 2020 in Zurich. This session is open to contributions dealing with hydrology and hydrogeology at all spatial and time scales: from global, continental, catchment to pore scale and processes occurring at the scale of a few minutes, hours or years Contributions demonstrating interdisciplinary approaches, such as groundwater-surface water interactions, are encouraged. This year, we particularly welcome contributions that improve our understanding of climate change impacts on water resources, including the presentation of results obtained in the context of the Hydro-CH2018 project of the Federal Office for the Environment FOEN.

Bon à savoir

Due to the current situation, it is not clear whether the plenary session can be held this year at all. We will keep you informed on the SGM 2020 Website
It is also not yet clear whether the symposia can be held in physical form at the ETH Zurich or will have to be held online. The Symposia conveners have however agreed to maintain their symposia whether in physical or virtual form. Experiences gathered so far, for instance at the EGU 2020, have shown that holding an online conference also has its benefits, especially in term of feedbacks that the presenters receive for their oral or poster presentations. And contrary to the EGU 2020 where all symposia were only held via chatrooms, we envision to hold the symposia with video support for instance using Zoom. However what we will NOT do is to have symposia both in physical and virtual form.
