Fifty Years of Water Resources Research

Water Resources Research has fifty years. Incredibly I spent half of its life with it, finding in this journal a constant source of quality and information. They celebrated the fifty years with a special issue where many protagonists of these years produced their views on the field. All was introduced by Alberto Montanari and the Editors of the Journal who I cited verbatim below (in italics).

The collection of contributions dedicated to the fiftieth Anniversary of Water Resources Research is organized in three chapters:

1. The legacy of hydrological sciences, which includes 12 papers.
2. Water processes interpretation and modeling, including 21 contributions.
3. Water resources, society, and water threats, including 23 papers.
Contributions are also indexed according to a classification of their main subject. The following subject areas were identified:
1. Critical zone and ecohydrology (6 papers).
2. Fluvial systems and hyporheic zone (10 papers).
3. Global hydrology, change and human impact (7 papers).
4. Groundwater flow and contaminant transport (5 papers).
5. Groundwater resources (6 papers).
6. Overarching principles, theories, and methods (12 papers).
7. Vadose zone hydrology (2 papers).
8. Water resources and risk management (8 papers).

Clearly all of this, besides summarizing the past are strong endorsement on the future way the discipline of hydrology can evolve.

Finally the Papers (unfortunately not of them open access):
