History of Hydrology


  • Anonymous


“History of Hydrology: Earth Science Aspects” is the subject of a half-day symposium at the 1984 AGU Fall Meeting (December 3–7, 1984, San Francisco). The symposium is being organized by the new History and Heritage of Hydrology Committee (HHHC) of AGU's Hydrology Section (a committee which will also function as a subgroup of the AGU Committee on the History of Geophysics). The symposium will cover historical aspects of the geological and geochemical study of surface and groundwater. Because this is a first-time effort by the HHHC, no initial restrictions on scope have been imposed in order to span a range of interests and to identify a population of individuals with historical interests within AGU and the hydrology community in general.
