AGU Event – Walter B. Langbein Lecture

The Walter Langbein Lecture is presented annually. It recognizes lifetime contributions of a senior scientist to the science of hydrology or unselfish cooperation in hydrologic research. The award is named to honor the life and work of hydrologist Walter B. Langbein.

Join us in honouring this year’s recipient, GWF Executive Director John Pomeroy. His lecture, Cold Regions Process Hydrology: Principles, Processes, Management and Prospects, reviews advances in cold regions hydrology and shows how this influences water supply in many parts of the world. The impact of climate warming on the loss of cold and on hydrology is emphasized.

14:30 CST – Introduction, Business Discussion, and Award
15:00 CST – Lecture: Cold Regions Process Hydrology: Principles, Processes, Management and Prospects – John W. Pomeroy
15:45 CST – Q&A
