Welcome to the German Chapter of the International Association of Hydrogeologists!

About IAH

The International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH) is a scientific and educational charitable organisation for scientists, engineers, water managers and other professionals working in the fields of groundwater resource planning, management and protection. Founded in 1956, it has grown to a world-wide membership of more than 4000 individuals in 135 countries.

IAH’s mission is to further the understanding, wise use and protection of groundwater resources throughout the world.


IAH aims to be a leading international society for the science and practice of hydrogeology and to be a globally recognised information source and facilitator for the transfer of groundwater knowledge. We endeavour to raise awareness of groundwater issues and work with national and international agencies to promote the use of groundwater to ensure ready access to safe drinking water. IAH also promotes the protection of aquifers against pollution, the improvement of aquifer storage and the management of groundwater resources to assure the sustainability of groundwater-dependent ecosystems.

IAH Germany

The German Chapter of IAH aims to provide a platform for all hydrogeologists working in Germany, for networking and professional interchange.

For closer cooperation between the members, we focus on periodic meetings and sessions at congresses held in Germany. To further the involvement of early career hydrogeologists in IAH affairs, we will initiate and support events of the early career in Germany as well as foster the interaction between the junior and senior hydrogeologists.
