WASHINGTON — AGU and CUAHSI (Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc.) will host the first biennial Frontiers in Hydrology meeting (#FIHM22) in San Juan, Puerto Rico and online, 19 – 24 June 2022.

If you visited press registration in previous weeks and encountered a payment requirement, we apologize for the technical glitch. This error has been corrected — press attendance at the Frontiers in Hydrology meeting is free of charge. Complimentary press registration for on-site and online attendance will remain open through the end of the meeting.

Join us for more than 900 talks and poster presentations on the future of water. Topics include urban and agricultural water systems, green infrastructure, climate resiliency, scarcity and environmental justice.

Water security in a changing world
Panelists take on water planning in a changing climate and geopolitical landscape, identifying challenges and regional solutions.

Plenary discussion on Monday, 20 June, 10:45 am AST, with speakers:

  • Kate Brauman, Associate Director for Analysis and Communications, Global Water Security Center
  • Martyn Clark, Associate Director, Centre for Hydrology and Coldwater Laboratory, University of Saskatchewan
  • Melanie Nakagawa, Special Assistant to the President and NSC Senior Director for Climate and Energy, The White House

Security & Justice
Climate change and environmental degradation aggravate existing inequities in safe and clean water access. Researchers are looking at how new approaches to water security can narrow the gap.

Social & Geologic Change
Social and geophysical scientists come together to address challenges at the interface of evolving water systems, climate change and human behavior.

Urban Resilience
New, cooperative and sustainable approaches to the movement of water through cities.

Health & Water Supply
Supply, pollution, purification and future water needs—and implications for migrations driven by water stress.
