The 17th Annual Hydrologic Sciences Symposium

April 12-13, 2023 in SEEC S228 and online.

The 17th Annual Hydrologic Sciences Symposium at CU Boulder is organized by students affiliated with the interdisciplinary Hydrologic Sciences Graduate Program and is open to all aspects of hydrologic sciences; interdisciplinary entries are particularly encouraged (e.g. hydrogeology, hydroecology, aquatic biology, biogeochemistry, environmental and water resource engineering, etc.). 

The symposium provides a great opportunity and friendly setting for students to learn what their fellow students and researchers are doing, both within and outside their sub-discipline. Abstracts are accepted from graduate and undergraduate students, researchers and faculty at CU Boulder and other Colorado colleges and universities as well as Colorado hydroscience researchers from the community and institutions such as USGS, NOAA, or NCAR.
