Re: “Hydrology”



R. L. Nace in ‘Hydrology Comes of Age’ (Eos, 61 (53), 1980), did not mention one rather important contribution to IHD made by the U.S. Work Group on Education and Training.

In 1965 the U.S. National Committee for the IHD established a Work Group on Education and Training, which was emphasized by the U.S. delegation at the 1967 IUGG conference. A detailed outline of a ‘Hydrology and Water Resources Syllabus’ was developed by L. L. Kelly of the U.S. Agricultural Research Service and presented to the U.S. committee in draft form.
