Congresso congiunto SIMP, SGI, SOGEI, AIV - Geoscience paradigm: Resources, Risks and future perspectives - Potenza, 19-21 settembre 2023

Congressi ed Eventi - Pubblicato il 09 Marzo 2023

Il Congresso congiunto delle Società Italiana di Mineralogia e Petrologia (SIMP), Società Geologica Italiana (SGI), Società Geochimica Italiana (SOGEI) e Associazione Italiana di Vulcanologia (AIV), dal titolo "The Geoscience paradigm: Resources, Risks and future perspectives", si terrà a Potenza dal 19 al 21 settembre 2023.


Le Sessioni patrocinate dal Chapter Italiano IAH e/o proposte dai nostri soci sono:

  • P72. Sustainable development and management of groundwater resources

Proponenti: Stefania Da Pelo (Università degli Studi di Cagliari), Vincenzo Piscopo (Università degli Studi della Tuscia;, Maurizio Polemio (IPRI CNR Bari), Sergio Rusi (Università degli Studi G. d'Annunzio Chieti)

This session is sponsored by IAH Italian Chapter and SGI Sezione di Idrogeologia

Groundwater resources provide in Italy about 85% of drinking water, originate mineral and thermal waters, and supply for irrigation and industrial needs. This invisible resource is strategic for future generations to ensure the human well-being and to maintain the dependent ecosystems. The topic of this session is the sustainability of groundwater abstractions at the scale of the basin, aquifer and individual well. Contributions from basic and applied research and case studies on criteria and methods for the assessment, development and management of groundwater in different hydrogeological environments (alluvial, fractured, karst and volcanic aquifers) are welcome. The aim of the session is to stimulate the discussion on novel approaches to identify the balance between the use of groundwater resources and the containment of hydrogeological, economic, social and environmental impacts related to it in the climate change scenarios.


  • P73. Water-Energy-Food Nexus as key for the sustainable development

Proponenti: Dimitra Rapti (Università degli studi di Ferrara - Socia IAH;, Francesco Sdao (Università degli studi della Basilicata)

It has become increasingly important to understand the interconnection between sustainability development and management of water, energy, and food resources. The interactions among the three resources are highly complex and dynamic and need to be analysed based on a holistic approach.
Also, their entanglement will become more strong in the coming decades, due to the increasing urbanization,  including population and economic growth will produce a progressively increasing pressure on these natural resources. It should be also noted that these resources will be impacted as the effects of climate change become more significant.
The ""nexus"" approach represents a smart strategy for the efficient use and management of natural resources and could significantly contribute to achieving the Global Sustainable Development Goals.
Accordingly, we welcome contributions to this section on
a) the exploration of the aquifer systems and their relationship with superficial water resources
b) the evaluation of the vulnerability of the underground water resources due to overexploitation, salt intrusion phenomena or human activities
c) water management strategies
d) the interactions with shallow geothermal systems for heating and cooling of buildings, greenhouses, district heating systems, etc.
e) the sustainable development of the agriculture and the impact on the superficial and underground water resources.


Segnaliamo inoltre l'ulteriore sessione di interesse a tema idrogeologia:

  • P68. Contamination and climate change on groundwater: challenges and opportunities

Proponenti: Filomena Canora (, Rosalba Muzzillo e Francesco Sdao (Università degli studi della Basilicata)

Groundwater is the worldwide most valuable freshwater resource, extensively used as the main source of drinking water. Groundwater resources are significantly affected by global factors like population growth, anthropogenic activities, and modifications in land use and by climate change both in quantity and quality. For these reasons, groundwater is strongly subjected to water stress and contamination processes and, therefore, requires opportune protection, sustainable use, and proper management tools. In this context, the present session intends to analyze different concerns connected to groundwater preservation from quali-quantitative degradation (over-exploitation, pollution) and climate change effects. The aim is to discuss the several aspects of groundwater issues and face new challenges in a changing environment for appropriate management, protection, and sustainable use of water resources for the future. We invite contributions about laboratory and field studies, hydrogeological and hydrogeochemical aquifers characterization, innovative modeling methods, and contamination vulnerability and risk approaches, related to groundwater quantity and quality changes and finalized to preventing, controlling, and mitigating environmental impacts on groundwater.
This session solicits papers concerning multidisciplinary researches aiming to consider the different aspects related to the challenges and the opportunities for future sustainable groundwater management, climate change mitigation measures, stakeholder and population involvement, and new decision support systems.
