AGU cooperated with sponsors Colorado State University, Fort Collins, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in presenting the International Symposium on the Design of Water Quality Information Systems, June 7–9, 1989, in Fort Collins. There were 44 papers presented to the 125 symposium participants (see photo).
In the keynote address, Marshall Moss (AGU General Secretary and U.S. Geological Survey, Tucson, Ariz.) described the evolution of water quality monitoring in an “information” age. He noted that if we are to bring what we have traditionally called “water quality monitoring” into the information age, we must couple decision technology with information technology at the system design stage. Representatives of national and local government and industry described how they are attempting to couple their water quality decisions with their “information” system.
