The meeting will be conducted by a water cycle study group appointed by the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP).The group's charge is to “formulate a research strategy and scientific plan for investigating the global water cycle, its role in climate, and the fundamental processes that govern the availability and the biogeochemistry of water resources, [and to] develop the strategy and science plan for a national program.”
