1.  Session H49 at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting,
5-9 December 2011 in San Francisco, California

Organizers of Session H49 at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall
Meeting, 5-9 December 2011 in San Francisco, California: Moving Towards
a Unified Threshold-based Hydrological Theory would like to encourage
those interested to submit an abstract.

Many theories fail to explain runoff variation because landscape
heterogeneity and hydrologic connectivity are not adequately considered.
Rainfall and storage thresholds have been proposed to explain complex
rainfall-runoff behaviour but hydrologists still need to agree on how to
quantify critical conditions where catchments transition between
distinct hydrological functions. We invite papers that (i) suggest
methods for detecting thresholds and incorporating them into model
structures; (ii) examine how thresholds interact across scales; (iii)
compare threshold-driven catchment functions across different land use
and climatic conditions; and (iv) address reasons why threshold
behaviours might not occur in certain environments.  Confirmed invited
speakers include Dr. Kevin McGuire, Virginia Tech and Dr. Sim Reaney,
Durham University.  

The abstract submission deadline for this and all other sessions is
Thursday, 4 August 2011 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. To submit
an abstract, you must enter the first author's current AGU member ID and
password at: http://agu-fm11.abstractcentral.com/.
