Ineson Lecture 2023 - final call for in-person registration!

Ineson Lecture is this Friday 10th November - Register now!

New this year, we are also including an option to attend online (choose virtual registration type in the drop down menu) , the deadline for this will be open longer – register here!

The IAH-GB Chapter, together with the Hydrogeology group of the Geological Society London will be hosting this year’s 2023 Ineson Lecture at the Geological Society, Burlington House, London. This year the theme is Groundwater in a digital landscape.

We live in an increasingly digitised world, with a continuing rapid pace of change. This year’s Ineson event on 15th November 2023 will follow immediately after the Geological Society conference “Digital Geoscience: Unleashing the Power of Data and Technology in Earth Sciences” and will look at how this digital revolution affects the hydrogeological profession.

The 2023 Ineson Lecture will be delivered by Holger Kessler (BGS), and our keynote speaker is Marian Scott (University of Glasgow).

Other speakers at the event will explore a broad range of new technologies, including: digital data representation and visualisation (e.g. digital geology models), use of artificial Intelligence (AI) or Machine Learning in areas including combined remote sensing and ground data, integration of live sensors and digital twins in relation to different aspects of hydrogeology and groundwater management.

The final programme is as follows and the speaker bios and abstracts will be shared before the day:
