Fundamental and applied researches to support this equilibrium are being developed in the disciplines of ecohydrology, eco-hydraulics, ecological engineering, and social-ecology.
The symposium provided an opportunity for researchers and practitioners from around the world to learn from each other, with a view to developing best practice for conserving and restoring sustainable ecohydrological systems to achieve water security and maintain ecosystem goods and services. (...) There is a need to invest in natural solutions to deliver the benefits of a ‘blue and green’ infrastructure. The promise of aligning the use of ecosystem services assessment with the needs of decision makers to achieve synergies across a range of policies to achieve comprehensive benefits was emphasised. To do this there is a need to develop innovative financing, which can attract the necessary capital funding.
SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
Many ecological systems owe their existence to physical/chemical properties of groundwater and surface water, and can be damaged if water flow or water properties are changed by anthropogenic or natural processes. To address the relevant issues, the conference aims to bring together experts from different disciplines such as hydrologists (groundwater, surface water), ecologists, biologists, subsurface microbiologists, environmental biogeochemists, eco-technologists, geomorphologists, hydraulic engineers, forest managers, nature reserve managers, regional and landscape planners, as well as experts from governmental institutions. The unifying theme is the interaction between groundwater and (or) /surface water and ecological systems. A typical example is the hyporheic zone in riparian areas, where the ecological system interacts with water and chemical flows between surface and groundwater.
On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing Committees of the International Symposium “Ecohydrology, Biotechnology and Engineering: Towards Harmony between the Biogeosphere and Society on the basis of Long-Term Ecosystem Research” we would like to express our deep appreciation to all of you for joining the Symposium held from September 17th to 19th , 2013 in Lodz, Poland.
