Water and its remarkable physical properties make life on earth possible. In this conference we will pay particular attention to water’s role in regulating climate through its capacity to store, move and transfer more heat than any other natural compound. Water is a planetary thermostat, and even with elevated greenhouse gases in the atmosphere it can cool the biosphere and address destructive feedback loops in the climate system.

Water problems pose interdisciplinary challenges as evidenced by the tremendous diversity of interests within the three organizations sponsoring this conference, UCOWR, NIWR, and CUAHSI. This conference was unique because it is both a scientific conference and an exploration of how universities organize themselves to meet societal goals concerning water resources. A central theme addressed was: How does university water research contribute to solving societal challenges? Leading water managers, educators, researchers, and other professionals from across the country gathered at the first joint conference of these national organizations to address some of the most compelling and important challenges facing our profession.
