Keynote Speakers

Each year at the American Geophysical Union Hydrology Days meeting the Hydrology Days Award is presented in recognition of outstanding and significant contributions to hydrologic science.  We also honor two speakers by inviting them to present Borland lectures, one in hydrology and the other in hydraulics.  We are excited to announce the 2019 Hydrology Days keynote speakers!

The 2019 American Geophysical Union Hydrology Days meeting provides a unique opportunity for students, faculty, staff and practitioners to engage in wide range of water-related interdisciplinary research topics. The spring meeting promises to expand our attendance beyond engineering and hydrology by engaging colleges across campus to holistically represent the far-reaching facets of water.  The organizing committee includes representatives from the Colleges of Engineering, Natural Resources, Agricultural Science, Liberal Arts, and Business as well as the USDA Agricultural Research Service.

This year we turn the spotlight on students across campus to broaden our understanding of the interconnections of water and linked systems.  The Student Showcase will provide an avenue for students to exchange ideas, present their research findings and refine their science communication skills.  Cash prizes and AGU Fall Meeting (2019) registration fees will be awarded to top oral and poster presentations for both graduate and undergraduate students!  Students interested in entering the student competition must adhere to posted deadlines, register and submit an abstract to confirm their participation. 

Faculty, staff, practitioners and industry representatives are encouraged to attend the event and learn just how poised our students are to enter the workforce – take this opportunity to enhance the student experience and invest in the future!  Any attendee sponsoring student registration will receive a discount.  Learn more about this exciting opportunity by visiting the registration page.

This event is organized by the One Water Solutions Institute at Colorado State University.  For questions or comments regarding Hydrology Days please contact: hydrologydays@engr.colostate.edu
