Following a successful turnout in previous years, organizers of EGU2017
are also this year organizing a session titled “Water Resources Management and Policy in a Changing World." Water plays a critical role in sustaining human health, food security, energy production and ecosystem services. Population growth, climate and land use change increasingly threaten water quality and quantity. Successful management of water resources requires an integrative understanding of coupled human and natural system components that can be used to generate practical, scientifically sound, economically-efficient and socially acceptable solutions that are sustainable. This session, which serves as the sister to the annual Water and Society session at the AGU meeting, provides a forum for discussing the advances in water resources systems analysis, planning and management to inform public policy, water resource allocation, conflict resolution, water governance, and sustainable development in a changing world.
Submissions for this session are welcome and can be submitted directly to http://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2017/abstractsubmission/22982
. Abstracts are due Wednesday, 11 January. Read More...

This is a conference update and call for abstracts for the American Water Resources Association’s 2017 Spring Specialty Conference, “Connecting the Dots: The Emerging Science of Aquatic System Connectivity.” The conference will be held from April 30 through May 3, 2017, in Snowbird, Utah, just 30 minutes from the Salt Lake City International Airport. The deadline for submitting an abstract is January 9, 2017
The conference focuses on hydrological, chemical, and biological connectivity in lakes, wetlands, streams, estuaries, and oceans. The conference will cover a wide range of topics on connectivity and should be a wonderful opportunity to learn about and discuss research that others are doing in fields related to aquatic systems. More information on abstract submission is found below. Read More...

Extremes in the water cycle are becoming more frequent and intense as the climate changes. Many of the impacts of these climate-related extremes are mediated through the water cycle. They are particularly important because of their large impacts on socio-economic structures/activities and on natural ecosystems. WCEs are at the center of changes in the water-food-energy-health-ecosystem nexus. They provide a cross-cutting focus for water cycle research and applications. Adequately characterizing WCEs (in space/time) is a challenge to both space-based and in-situ observing systems, and data assimilation/modeling systems. These topics will be discussed in a session at the AGU Conference taking place 14-18 December 2015 in San Francisco, CA, USA. Read More...
