The meetings of Hydrology Section Executive Committee report on the details of the processes of the Section's activities and provide a forum for discussion of issues in the development of the hydrologic sciences.

The most visible Section activities occur at the Fall and Spring Meetings. The Hydrology Section continues to grow in participation at the Fall Meeting. At the 1996 Fall Meeting, approximately 800 Hydrology Section abstracts were presented. As the Fall Meeting continues to grow overall for the Union, members can anticipate a growing percentage of posters. The Spring Meeting is a well-attended activity of the Section. Unfortunately, participation in the Spring Meeting by certain sections of the AGU is quite low. The Union's Meetings Committee is actively seeking to maintain the ail-Union character of the Spring Meeting.
