Special announcement


We are sad to report that our colleague and friend Luís Ribeiro passed away day 3 April 2020. He was 64 years old. Luís was a beautiful, brilliant and inspiring person, and his sudden loss comes as a huge shock to his family and friends, as well as the academic, groundwater and other communities worldwide who knew him very well.

IAH’s Commission on Groundwater and Climate Change (CGCC) is an official network of International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH). Created in 2002, the aims of the commission are:

  • to improve understanding of the relationship between groundwater and climate change, and
  • to investigate the role of groundwater in adaptation to climate variability and change.

We hope our website will encourage you to find out more about the commission, our mission and our challenges, explore our activities and also to become involved.

IAH is an international charitable organisation that promotes sound development and management of groundwater – seen by many as the worldwide family of hydrogeologists.
