Newman and Kirschbaum are President-elects

10.19.2018
Congratulations to Paul Newman (610) and Dalia Kirschbaum (617) on being elected president-elect for the American Geophysical Union Atmospheric Sciences and Natural Hazards sections, respectively. They will begin their terms on January 1, 2019, and serve for 2 years.

Bolten Quoted in Business Insider Article

09.28.2018
"I think rivers are treated as a renewable resource when they're really not," John Bolten, a hydrologist and the associate program manager of water resources at NASA's Applied Sciences Program, told Business Insider. "It's remarkable how many people are dependent on access to clean water. If rivers are not conserved and used properly, it's a detriment to everyone." That's well worth considering on World Rivers Day, held annually at the end of September.

Overview

The Hydrological Sciences Laboratory examines the role of water in the Earth system. Laboratory researchers strive to better understand, quantify, and analyze the hydrological cycle and to measure hydrological processes in order to improve prediction of the response of global hydrology to anthropogenic and/or natural climate change.

Special emphasis is placed on land surface hydrological processes and their interactions with the atmosphere. Laboratory scientists develop remote-sensing and modeling techniques to investigate how the various components of the hydrological cycle interact over a broad range of spatial and temporal scales.
