This year the Irish Group of the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH) held their fieldtrip on the weekend of 16th and 17th October, when fifteen intrepid hydrogeologists headed north from Dublin to meet researchers working in Counties Armagh, Antrim, Derry and Tyrone.

The hydrogeology of the region has been long-studied, but the trip focussed on recent and novel work in the region, and several new approaches to examining issues regarding water supply, blanket bog hydrogeology, novel and unusual karst, and various facets of coastal hydrogeology.

The idea of the field trip was to examine this rich library of new work, by visiting a wide variety of sites with very different hydrogeological influences.

The IAH (Irish Group) would like to thank all who contributed and attended this years field trip.
