Watershed studies conference held



Nearly 100 scientists from 11 nations gathered to discuss integrated research in forest watersheds at the Gordon Research Conference, “Hydrological-Geochemical-Biological Interactions in Forested Catchments,” held from July 1 to 5, 1991, in Plymouth, N.H. The conference was the first-ever on this topic, and it was held to address newly emerging research questions, to highlight recent advances in watershed science, and to bring biologists and ecologists into discussions discussions of catchment hydrogeochemical function. R. Church (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Corvallis, Oreg.) and G. Hornberger (University of Virginia) served as chair and vice-chair, respectively, of the conference.
