Hydrologic Synthesis

Water Resources Research, vol. 42, no. 3, 2006

Guest Editor(s): G. Hornberger, S. Hubbard

Description:This special section presents ideas about synthesis topics that have the potential to revolutionize hydrological sciences in a manner needed to meet the critical water challenges that we now face. The forum was also designed to highlight topics that are important and exciting enough to compel researchers to engage in collaborative synthesis efforts. The 10 papers in the forum discuss the synthesis of tools, data, concepts, theories, or approaches across disciplines and scales, with emphasis on topics such as groundwater quality, river restoration, water management, nitrogen cycling, and Earth\u00E2\u0080\u0090surface dynamics. These papers illustrate that the challenge to deal effectively with complex water problems is not purely a scientific, technological, or socioeconomic one; it is instead a complex, 21st century problem that requires coordinated synthesis.
