Hydrology Days 2008
On behalf of the Organizing Committee of Hydrology Days, I would like to invite you to participate in the Year 2008 edition of Hydrology Days, which will be held at Colorado State University during March 26 - March 28, 2008.
The deadline for abstracts is February 8, 2008.
Hydrology Days has been held on the campus of Colorado State University each year since 1981. Hydrology Days is a unique celebration of multi-disciplinary hydrologic science and its closely related disciplines. The Hydrology Days vision is to provide an annual forum for outstanding scientists, professionals and students involved in basic and applied research on all aspects of water to share ideas, problems, analyses and solutions. The focus includes the water cycle and its interactions with land surface, atmospheric, ecosystem, economic and political processes, and all aspects of water resources engineering, management and policy.
For information about Hydrology Days 2008, including details about abstract deadlines, special sessions, on-line registration, and on-line submission of abstracts and papers, please point your Web browser to our Web page at the following URL address:
Professor Wilfried H. Brutsaert to be honored
In recognition of his outstanding contributions to hydrologic science in the areas of boundary layer theory and evapotranspiration estimation, vadose zone and hillslope hydrology, and stream-aquifer interactions, the 2008 Hydrology Days Award will be presented to Professor Wilfried H. Brutsaert. The award will be presented during a special technical session in which Professor Brutsaert will deliver the Hydrology Days Award Lecture titled, "The estimation of groundwater storage changes at climatic time scales from low streamflow observations."
Lectures in Hydrology and Hydraulics
Professor Dennis Lettenmaier will present the Borland Lecture in Hydrology titled, "Hydrology in the global change era: the Colorado River as a case study." The Borland Lecture in Hydraulics will be presented by Professor Bill Dietrich.
In addition, to the technical sessions associated with the Hydrology Days Award and the two Borland Lectures, we will have special sessions on:
-Climate variability and change: impacts on hydrologic, ecological, and water resource systems;
-Land use changes and streams;
-Nutrient dynamics in alluvial streams;
-Biocomplexity issues related to interactions between humans, aquatic ecosystems and complex landscapes;
-Measuring and modeling the mountain snowpack;
-Monitoring and modeling pollution and water quality in irrigated stream-aquifer systems;
-Estimating evaporation and evapotranspiration in the field;
-Groundwater remediation - focusing on advancements in groundwater remediation technologies;
-Transport in porous media - focusing on fate and behavior of contaminants in subsurface environments;
-Ground water-Surface water conjunctive management;
-Semi-arid region vadose zone hydrology and contaminant transport;
-Scaling issues: scale dependence and scale invariance in hydrology;
-Detecting and modeling climate variability and change using stochastic approaches;
-Stochastic techniques in water resources planning and management;
Please share this invitation with your students and colleagues and encourage them to participate. Thank you.
