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.

- Measuring and Modeling the Mountain Snowpack
With 50 to 80% of the water in the Western U.S. originating from snowmelt, it is imperative to accurately measure montane snowpacks, and model accumulation and ablation patterns and the resultant streamflow. This session will present the state-of-the-art science in measuring and modeling in rugged mountain environments.
Papers are invited that characterize the behavior of emerging contaminants in the environment. These include pharmaceuticals, personal care products, biological agents, and other contaminants for which a fundamental understanding is needed in order to develop appropriate treatment and mitigation strategies.
- Land Use Change and Streams
- Nutrient Dynamics in Alluvial Streams
Papers are invited adressing the development of analyticaland observational tools needed to understand and predict the interactions and feedbacks among humans and aquatic species across complex landscapes.
- Monitoring and modeling pollution and water quality in irrigated stream-aquifer systems
Papers are invited that deal with actual data collection as well as development and application of models that address water quality in ground water and in rivers mainly as non-point sources derived from irrigation activities. Topics could include: issues with salinity, nitrates and phosphates, selenium, and other trace elements. Of special interest would be papers dealing with the development of mitigation strategies.
Latest technologies for estimating evaporation and evapotranspiration in the field
Papers are invited that deal with data collection and analysis using some of the following approaches: lysimeters; water and energy flux measurements; estimates derived from bowen ratio or eddy-covariance towers, and the thermal infrared band from satellite imagery. Emphasis will be placed on the actual implementation of these methodologies for spatiotemporal quantification of evaporation and evapotranspiration in the field.
- Experimental Methods in Sub-surface Investigations
- Groundwater Remediation - focusing on advancements in groundwater remediation technologies
- Transport in Porous Media - focusing on fate and behavior of contaminants in subsurface environments
- Ground water-Surface water conjunctive management
- Semi-arid region vadose zone hydrology and contaminant transport
- Detecting and Modeling Climate Variability and Change Using Stochastic Approaches
- Stochastic Techniques in Water Resources Planning and Management
Papers are welcome on all topics in hydrology and
hydrology-related fields of science and engineering. Several
sessions under consideration are:
dynamics and ecosystem structure
scale dependence and scale invariance in hydrology
in river restoration
impacts of forest management practices.
geomorphology and landscape evolution
coupled processes in the vadose zone
and multiple scale processes in hydrology
ecologic and atmospheric modeling
surface water interaction
dynamics of soil moisture processes
fisheries, economic and social impacts of dam removal.
operations with biological constraints.
hydrological needs of endangered species.
Role of hydrologic
models in the TMDL process.
Applications of GIS
and estimation of aquifer recharge in large basins.
hydraulic properties of porous media.
Multi-phase flow in
heterogeneous porous media.
analysis of water quality data: are 'standard' methods
evolving for specific management information purposes?
developments in stochastic hydrology

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.
and prizes will be given for the best student papers as oral and
poster presentations in the following categories: B.S., M.S. and
Ph.D. Criteria for judging: clarity of presentation, technical
soundness and originality of contribution, relevance to
hydrologic practice, and quality of written paper if submitted
for the Proceedings.

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.
Fort Collins Hotel is located across from campus. Also the Best
Western University Inn is located at the edge of campus.
