Abstract

Geologists are coming to realize that the movement of water underground may contribute to a wider variety of classical geologic processes than had previously been imagined. Many now believe that earthquakes, landslides, and the formation of deposits of oil and minerals are among those processes that are strongly influenced by the action of groundwater. T h e role of groundwater flow in geologic processes will be the focus of a special Union-wide, interdisciplinary session on the morning of Monday, May 19, at the 1986 AGU Spring Meeting in Baltimore, Md. Additional sessions on the subject will be held by the Hydrology Section that afternoon; on Tuesday morning, May 20; and in a poster session on Tuesday afternoon.
