Exhibit Hall 3 (ACC) (Austin, Texas)
Host: 32nd Conference on Hydrology

Urban climate literature consistently suggests that cities impact the water cycle through modifications in evapotranspiration, precipitation, and surface runoff processes. These impacts extend beyond the urban core into adjacent suburban, ex-urban, and rural areas. This session seeks to highlight emerging research that focuses on quantitative analysis of observations and numerical simulations surrounding hydrometeorological response to urbanization on the local and regional scale. Advancements in urban climate theory and research-to-application methods related to the water cycle are also welcome.
