Hydrology Days has been held on the campus of Colorado State University each year since 1981. Hydrology Days is a unique celebration of multi-disciplinary hydrologic science and its closely related disciplines. The Hydrology Days vision is to provide an annual forum for outstanding scientists, professionals and students involved in basic and applied research on all aspects of water to share ideas, problems, analyses and solutions. The focus includes the water cycle and its interactions with land surface, atmospheric, ecosystem, economic and political processes, and all aspects of water resources engineering, management and policy.

 Conference Format

A three-day program for Hydrology Days will include contributed papers; a few invited papers; student papers; and a poster session. Oral presentations will be scheduled for 20 minutes, including discussion. Standard audio-visual equipment (overhead and slide projectors and computer projection equipment) will be provided. Written papers are not mandatory. Travel scholarships are available.


Papers are welcome on all topics in hydrology and related fields of science and engineering. Several sessions under consideration are:

 Student Awards

The Conference will be held at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. Fort Collins  http://www.ci.fort-collins.co.us is a community of more than 100,000 located 65 miles (104 kilometers) north of Denver. At an elevation of 5,000 feet (1,525 meters), it rests at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. Fort Collins is within an hour of several mountain parks including Rocky Mountain National Park, Roosevelt National Forest, and Lory State Park. Fort Collins enjoys a sunny, dry climate year-round. We encourage you to use your time in Colorado for recreation as well as technical learning.

The Hilton Fort Collins Hotel is located across from campus. Also the Best Western University Inn is located at the edge of campus. For additional lodging information, please browse the following URL: http://www.ftcollins.com/Default.asp
