Welcome

The 2007 Hydraulic Measurements & Experimental Methods Conference (HMEM 2007) is jointly sponsored by the Environmental and Water Resources Institute (EWRI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and the International Association of Hydraulic Engineering and Research (IAHR). HMEM 2007 is the third in a series of highly successful HMEM conferences; the first having been held in Buffalo, NY in 1994 and the second in Estes Park, CO in 2002. 

The field of Hydraulic Measurements & Experimental Methods represents the broad range of tools, techniques, and analyses that are used to quantify all aspects of surface water flows. Areas of application range from rivers to lakes to estuaries and coastal oceans, and also include manmade aquatic systems such as irrigation channels and reservoirs.  In a world facing ever-increasing pressures on water quality and supply, the demand for new technologies and analytical methods in water resources is on the rise.


This conference will provide an opportunity for researchers, practitioners, and students of the field to come together in a common single-themed forum to exchange ideas and share discussions on current issues, applications, new technologies and the future of Hydraulic Measurements & Experimental Methods.

All relevant topics are encouraged for discussion including new developments in measurement technologies, new analyses that improve data quality or extract increased information from existing tools, unique examples of applications of techniques, the analysis of uncertainty and optimizing the deployment of measurement technologies to minimize uncertainty. Developments of data collection networks, autonomous networks of sensors, and remotely sensed measurements are of special interest.
