The Consortium for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc. (CUAHSI) is a go-to group for hydrology workshops, conferences, and networking. Their once-every-two-years meeting is a great chance to hear some fantastic talks, meet other researchers and students, and share your work. This year’s meeting is in Sheperdstown, WV (a mere 4.5 hours from Kent) on July 28-30th, and the theme is “Water Across the Critical Zone: From Local to Global Hydrology.” I’m hoping my schedule allows me to be there, and I’m encouraging my students to go too. Hope to see you there!

The “blue book” has been updated and you can read and download a pre-publication PDF on the National Academies’ website for free. I’ve just been listening to a CUAHSI webinar summarizing the report, and I was please to see that a lot of the questions I’m interested in were highlighted by the committee that updated the report. For instance, there was specific mention of urban hydrology (and how changes to flowpaths and quantity alter water quality), the co-evolution of hydrology, landscapes, and life, and the need to understand the controls on the low flow extent of streams. I’ll be reading sections of this report in coming months, and if you want to get a sense of the state of hydrologic science, you would probably do well to start here too.
