HPToday - 15 High Impact Invited Commentaries

15 HPToday Invited Commentaries that have made and are making an impact!

The following Invited Commentaries, which began to be presented in the HPToday section of Hydrological Processes in 2000, were selected by myself and my predecessor as HPToday editor (Jeff McDonnell) as ones that we believe have had and will continue to have a significant impact on the ways in which we think about and work in the field of hydrology. Our selection was based on a number of factors, including the number of citations which these Commentaries have received in the literature (greater than 100 in many cases) and the number of other Commentaries (both in HPToday and in other journals) that they have provoked. We feel that these are excellent representatives of the overall goal of the Invited Commentaries in HPToday – to provide incisive, provoking and respectful views on the wide range of current issues facing hydrology that will stimulate our thinking and discussions about our discipline.
