International geophysics: Symposium on the Hydrology of Deltas



A Symposium on the Hydrology of Deltas was held in Bucharest, Romania, on May 6–9; it was followed by a field trip to the delta of the Danube River on May 10–14. The Symposium was organized by Unesco, with the collaboration of the Romanian Government and the support of the International Association of Scientific Hydrology (IASH).

The Romanian Government did an excellent job of arranging for airport reception, hotels in Bucharest, a meeting hall for the technical sessions, hospitality sessions, a full side program for wives of delegates, and hotels, meals, and transportation (bus, train, and boat) on the field trip. The Institute of Hydrotechnical Research of the Romanian Government provided most of the support.
