To keep abreast of current issues and to plan future activities, Hydrology Section President Steve Burges brought a full agenda to the Executive Committee meeting held in San Francisco December 13, 1995. The following highlights of the meeting are offered to keep you informed about what's new in the Hydrology Section.
At the 1995 AGU Fall meeting there were 741 hydrology presentations in 62 sessions. Fifty-five percent of these were in poster form. Over the past 3 years posters have gained acceptance by the hydrology community, and because they can reach a larger audience and can be viewed all day, they are the preferred medium for many presenters. In San Francisco our section continued the Outstanding Student Paper Awards Program that we initiated at the 1995 AGU Spring meeting. Up to 5% of papers given by student colleagues can be recognized as outstanding. Members who can help evaluate student papers in one or more sessions at the Spring Meeting are encouraged to volunteer. To do so, contact section Secretary Roger Bales (email@example.com).
