Editor's Choice Awards 2013
With the approval of the AGU Hydrology Section Executive Committee, WRR has instituted an Editors’ Choice Award to be given to (about) the top one percent of published articles in any calendar year. Our goal is to provide professional recognition to scientists and students for their outstanding work. The selection is made by the WRR Editors based on technical significance, novelty, originality, presentation, and broader implications of the publication. Awards made in a given year are for articles published in the previous calendar year. We are pleased to announce that the following contributions are being recognized for 2013 award year:
