The Hydrology Section awarded the 1991 Horton Research Grants to Timothy Green and Jeffrey P. Raffensperger May 30, at the Spring Meeting in Baltimore. The grants, each for $9,500, were presented by Hydrology Section president Don Nielsen. In 1982 the section established this grant to foster graduate student research in hydrology and water resources leading to the completion of doctoral dissertations. Funded by income from the Robert E. Horton Fund for Hydrologic Research, the grant is awarded annually to Ph.D. candidates.

Timothy Green is a 1986 graduate of the University of Washington where he received a B.S. degree in civil engineering. Green is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in civil engineering/water resources at Stanford University. His research focuses on the roles of landscape topography and moisture-dependent anistropy in soil-water flow and groundwater recharge
