Hundreds Attend the 2023 Clemson Hydrogeology Symposium

The 2023 Clemson Hydrogeology Symposium had a record number of in-person plus online attendees this year.  On April 6th, the Madren Center was once again filled to capacity with over 470 attendees in person and 150 remote attendees.  The Symposium featured three concurrent sessions with 57 presentations on topics ranging from Geophysics to PFAS Characterization, Radionuclides, and Bioremediation.  A fascinating keynote address was given by Dr. Daniel Stephens of Daniel B. Stephens & Associates, entitled “250 Years: From Contributions of British Land Drainers to Unexpected Behavior in the Vadose Zone.”  Drawing on lessons learned during the pandemic, the Symposium presentations were streamed live to online attendees.   The Symposium events included a field trip to the Brevard Fault Zone and Tallulah Dome in northeast Georgia, a Career KickStarter event to facilitate networking between aspiring students and experienced  professionals, 35 exhibit booths and a post Symposium mixer at the Clemson Outdoor Lab on Lake Hartwell.

Did you miss the 2023 Symposium?  Not to worry.  Plans are in the works for the 2024 Symposium, likely in early April.  If you have any questions about attending (in person or online), giving a presentation, serving as an exhibitor, or any other aspect of this exciting event, please contact Scott Brame.  We look forward to seeing you in 2024.
