Alaska has many diverse water-resource problems and the Alaska Section encourages submittal of papers covering the full range of water-resource issues that exist across the state and the many disciplines that make up our membership. We have scheduled time for presentations covering all aspects of water resource assessment and management of interest to our members.

Some topics to consider are:

  • Watershed monitoring, management and stewardship
  • Fish habitat restoration and fish passage
  • Water-resource regulations, public impacts and risk analysis
  • Basic data collection programs and uses for both ground water and surface water
  • Water resource issues associated with forestry and wildlife
  • Instream flow uses - the balance between regulation and technical requirements, and associated costs
  • Applications of new or old data collection technologies for forecasting and hydrologic analysis
  • Advancements in computer modeling of hydrologic systems in the Arctic
  • Permafrost hydrology
  • Contaminants in the Alaskan environment
  • Issues/assessments specific to Interior Alaska and surrounding areas

Abstracts for both oral presentations and poster presentations are due March 3, 2004. We are looking forward to an exciting meeting and hope to see you there!! The preliminary program will be available in mid-March 2004.
