Taking the Pulse of the Planet: Advancing Groundwater Science and Management Conference

Recent advancements in sensor technologies, ranging from ground-based electromagnetics to orbiting satellite constellations, have dramatically expanded the potential to analyze groundwater systems around the world with measurements acquired at unprecedented spatial and temporal resolutions.

About the Sustainability Research Conference Series

The Stanford Initiative on Business and Environmental Sustainability Research Conference Series is hosted by Stanford Graduate School of Business and the Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability.


June 2–3, 2023


Stanford University campus

Data derived from satellites can characterize the changing spatial and temporal patterns in the hydrologic functioning of the land surface, while airborne and ground-based systems can inform our modeling of subsurface properties and processes. The combined use of these measurements has the potential to significantly advance both groundwater science and the emerging field of adaptive groundwater management by providing actionable and timely information.
