Description

Two of the initiatives proposed for the next decade of hydrological science are the establishment of a national network of field observatories by the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc. (CUAHSI), and the initiative called Prediction in Ungauged Basins (PUB) under the International Association of Hydrological Sciences. There are opportunities for synergy between these two developments that could expand the capacity of hydrologists to understand hydrological processes, to make quantitative predictions, to develop realistic methods for estimating risks to water supplies, and to refine the designs of complex water-related facilities and management schemes. Taking advantage of these opportunities will require some thoughtful organization of the way that scientific studies are conceived, planned, conducted, and assessed.
