Session at the AGU Fall Meeting 2018 // Frontiers in Hydrology: Paths Toward the Next Century in Water Research

Although humans have studied and managed water resources for millennia, hydrology has evolved immensely in the last century. The field continues to grow more integrated, while tackling complex issues across wide spatial and temporal scales. Big data, cross-disciplinary collaborations, novel data collection and analytical methods can help address the major questions of our time in the face of increasing uncertainties, such as: How do we manage the Food-Water-Energy nexus under climate change? Can we find a unifying framework for our knowledge across wide spatiotemporal scales? How will increasing anthropogenic stressors affect our water resources?

The conveners invite members of all experience levels to share their vision on where hydrology is heading and how to tackle the issues of the 21st century in the form of 5-minute lightning pitches. Presentations should attempt to go beyond one’s research to address broader issues of an interdisciplinary nature.
