Past President's Report: The State of the Section


  • R. Allan Freeze


I would like to take this opportunity to summarize the state of the Hydrology Section of AGU as I see it after 4 years in the trenches (2 as President-Elect and 2 as President). The picture I will paint is a relatively rosy one. I believe the section is healthy and performing its primary functions well with respect to publications, meeting, and awards. The section has also been involved in some special programs and issues that may be of interest to you. In this brief report, I will try to hit the highlighh in each of these areas, closing with mention of the minor but nagging ongoing problems that in my opinion arise largely from a need to grapple with the dichotomies of our section.
