The Water Resources Research Center, University of Hawai‘i, will host a symposium on the state of hydrological science in the Islands on Friday, August 13, 2007. The half-day event is open to the public and will be held at the Manoa campus’ Marine Science Building, Room 114, from 8:30 a.m.
The symposium is inspired by Hydrology of the Hawaiian Islands, written by L. Stephen Lau and John Mink and published by University of Hawai‘i Press in October 2006. The book provides a basic understanding of hydrology for the general reader and more in-depth discussion for those familiar with the discipline. The goal of the symposium is to bring together people who work or study in the field of hydrology in all its aspects, review the history of Hawaiian hydrology, and discuss topics for future development.
