Groundwater Modellers' Forum
The Groundwater Modellers' Forum provides an opportunity for the UK groundwater modelling community to:
- Exchange experience and knowledge on practical and scientific issues;
Explore methods and agree best practice on groundwater modelling;
Forge links with academia;
Make recommendations on best practice and future R&D work.
It aims to meet these objectives by organising one or two workshops a year. The workshops are run under the auspices of the Hydrogeological Group of the Geological Society and are open to all who are actively involved in the topic area for that workshop and can contribute to the discussion both prior to and during the day. In the past this has included staff from water companies, universities, consultants, regulators, research institutes and the Met Office.
A workshop usually begins with a challenge laid down by three or four keynote speakers on the day's topic. The heart of each workshop is the small discussion groups where we explore how we can improve both our operational modelling and the science that supports it. A summary of what has been agreed is distributed by email and posted on this website. A charge is made for each workshop to cover the costs of the meeting rooms.

Note, the Groundwater Modellers' Forum is not linked to the UK Groundwater Forum. However, the UK Groundwater Forum supports the aims of the Groundwater Modellers' Forum and maintains this section of the web site to enable dissemination of information on its workshops.
