Hydrology in Earth System Science and Society (HESSS)
During the first International Conference on Hydrology delivers Earth System Science to Society (HESSS-1) in 2007, an attempt was made to ascertain the gaps between the needs of society and the services of the hydrology community. The success of the first conference laid out the basis for the 2nd HESSS International Conference, which was hosted at the University of Tokyo in June 2010. The meeting brought together four unique communities-the Global Soil Wetness Project (GSWP)/Global Land/Atmosphere System Study (GLASS); the AsiaFlux/Flux Tower Network (FluxNet); LandFlux-Eval; and the GEWEX Hydroclimatology Panel (formerly CEOP)-to bridge the aforementioned gaps and address the key leverage points with a shared vision of a sustainable and desirable world. The main objective of the conference was to establish practical protocols and frameworks to promote more effective collaboration among the research communities of hydrological modeling, field observations, and remote sensing in the context of sustainability science.
