Hydrology Conference 2010

Hydrology Conference 2010


This major international conference, taking place in San Diego, USA,
October 11 – 13, 2010, will target the developing interdisciplinary
science themes in the interface between hydrology and other scientific
disciplines, including climate change, biology, chemistry and social
sciences. These subjects are of particular relevance as population
increases and a changing climate bring new pressures on hydrological
systems around the world.


Abstracts are invited by March 15, 2010 for oral and poster presentations
at the meeting on the following topics:
Hydrology and climate change
Hydrology, bio-geochemistry and environmental management
Hydrology, health and improved socio-economic conditions
Hydrology, history and conflicts
Hydrology: past, present and future developments
Please submit abstracts using the online submission form at

Abstract submission deadline: March 15, 2010.
