Author and Presenter Instructions

The 33rd Conference on Hydrology is sponsored by the American Meteorological Society and organized by the AMS Committee on Hydrology.

Topics Covered

Papers for this conference are solicited on the following:

  • Advances in evaporation and evaporative demand
  • Advances in monitoring and analyzing precipitation extremes using remote sensing
  • Advances in understanding land-atmosphere interactions
  • Coupled environmental model prediction of natural hazards
  • Drought monitoring, early warning, and projection in the 21st century: Beyond PDSI
  • Flood prediction, analysis, decision support, and management
  • Floods and remote sensing technologies
  • Global and regional remote sensing precipitation estimation, evaluation, and applications
  • Harness data to develop effective warning messages for disasters
  • Hydrometeorological extremes
  • Innovative uses of satellite remote sensing, modeling, and other tools for prediction, mapping, and analysis of hydrologic events
  • Integrated metrics and benchmarking for next-generation hydro/land-surface modeling of the water cycle
  • Integrating water and energy cycle pathways to better understand weather and climate extremes
  • Multiprocesses analysis, modeling, and product application in arid and semiarid regions
  • Precipitation processes and observations for atmospheric, land surface, and hydrological modeling
  • Probabilistic hydrometeorological forecasting and uncertainty analysis
  • Reservoir flood operations and forecasting during extreme events
  • Snow Processes and Melt Detection through Remote Sensing, Modeling, and Data Assimilation
  • Use of data and science to advance the goals of global water sustainability

Joint Sessions

In addition, papers are solicited on the following topics for joint sessions:

  • Advances in understanding land-atmosphere interactions (joint with the 32nd Conference on Climate Variability and Change);
  • Drought monitoring, early warning, and projection in the 21st century: beyond PDSI (joint with the 32nd Conference on Climate Variability and Change, and the 24th Conference on Applied Climatology);
  • The wizard behind the curtain?—the important, diverse, and often hidden role of spectrum allocation for current and future environmental satellites and water, weather and climate (joint between the 15th Annual Symposium on New Generation Operational Environmental Satellite Systems; the Seventh Symposium on the Weather, Water, and Climate Enterprise; and the Fifth Symposium on High Performance Computing for Weather, Water, and Climate);

Student Award Opportunities

The 33rd Conference on Hydrology will sponsor a competition for students presenting their own original research in hydrology. Student presentations will be judged on scientific content, presentation quality, and the overall effectiveness of the presentation. The competition will award first and second place cash prizes, consisting of $150 for first place and $75 for second place for both oral and poster presentations. A list of previous winners is available at the Hydrology Committee’s webpage. To enter the competition, you must indicate your desire to participate in the competition when submitting your abstract.

Additionally, the 33rd Conference on Hydrology will offer two travel awards, of $525 each, to students presenting at the 33rd Conference on Hydrology. Recipients of the travel grant will be chosen by the Hydrology Committee based on financial need and relevance of the presented work with the goals and mission of the AMS Hydrology Committee. This will be evaluated through a two-page application following the guidelines set forth in this document. For additional information about the student competition or travel grant, please contact Francina Dominguez (email: [email protected]).
