Robert E. Horton Lecturer in Hydrology

The 2019 Lecturers have been selected by AMS Council. Nominations for the 2020 Lecturers will open in November 2018.


The Robert E. Horton Lecturer in Hydrology is selected in recognition of a scientist for outstanding research on topics of interest to both hydrologists and meteorologists. The purpose of the lectureship is to encourage and foster an interchange of ideas between meteorologists and hydrologists. The lecture, which may be either a general overview or a summary of recent work conducted in an area of particularly current interest, is presented at an AMS Annual Meeting or at an appropriate specialty conference. The lecture may be recorded for broader dissemination and, if desired by the Lecturer, a written version of the lecture will be posted as part of BAMS Online.

Nominations are considered by the STAC Committee on Hydrology, which makes recommendations for final approval by AMS Council.

Nomination Process

The procedure for Lecturer nominations is restricted to electronic submissions and should be submitted by 1 May. The nominator is responsible for uploading the entire nomination package.

Nominations considered are those submitted in the current and preceding two years. The lecture will be presented at an Annual Meeting or an appropriate specialty conference.
