Final meeting of USNC/IHD


  • Anonymous


At its sixteenth and final meeting on June 12–13, the U.S. National Committee for the IHD, under the chairmanship of H. Garland Hershey, considered and approved two additional reports for publication, subject to recommended revisions. These were the final reports of the USNC/IHD Work Groups on Snow and Ice Hydrology, and Hydrology of Carbonate Terranes (summaries of these contributions are in this issue). A major portion of the meeting was devoted to a discussion of the first draft of the conclusions and recommendations section of part 3 of the committee's own final report. It was decided that a subcommittee should meet in the latter part of July to finish work on this report and begin the formal National Academy of Sciences (NAS) review process.
