The Center for Water, Earth Science and Technology (CWEST) is a scientific and educational partnership between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the University of Colorado Boulder (CU) with the center being a part of the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR).
CWEST builds upon the many successful and on-going collaborations that have been taking place between INSTAAR researchers and others at CU with scientists at the USGS, including those working with the USGS’s National Research Program and its Earth Surface Dynamics Program.

One of CWEST’s key educational initiatives is the administration of the Hydrologic Sciences Graduate Program at the University of Colorado. This program involves graduate students from several academic departments at the University of Colorado and holds an annual Hydrologic Sciences Symposium.
