Uncertainty in hydrogeology and groundwater modelling is front and centre in groundwater science, management and policy. Methods to measure, conceptualise, understand, reduce and communicate uncertainty remain key issues.  This seminar and panel discussion will present state of the art understanding and approaches in this area and will discuss and debate the needs and future directions in a Q&A style panel.
