Section Meeting Concepts: We need your input!

Posted 05/30/19 by jaivime in News

Over the past year, the Hydrology Section leadership has been in discussion with AGU on the subject of a hydrology-focused meeting, similar in concept to the very successful Ocean Sciences Meeting held on even years.

Given the size and growth of the Fall Annual Meeting, the Section Leadership sees this as an outstanding opportunity to offer a more focused experience in addition to the Fall Annual meeting on an every other year rotation, to experiment with new meeting formats for a more personal experience and to bring in other partner societies whose scientific focus can complement the Section.

All primary members of the AGU Hydrology Section should have received an email this week summarizing the meeting concepts and providing a link to a very short survey.  In the linked document, you will find a summary of the meeting concepts and rationale. If you did not get this link, or are having any difficulties, please contact Antonio Covington ( or me directly (

I do hope that you will take a few minutes to complete the survey to help guide your section and its future. The preliminary survey results will be summarized by our Meetings Task Force for publication in the July Hydrology Section Newsletter, and I ask that you let us know your thoughts by June 27, 2019.

Thank you in advance and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this exciting experiment.

Scott W. Tyler

Hydrology Section President
