Welcome to SWARM-AAAS Water Forum

Date:           Monday, November 4th
Location:     Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona

The Southwestern and Rocky Mountain Division of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences are bringing together experts for a one-day forum on water. 

From the aqueducts of the Romans to the Hohokam canals buried beneath the modern Central Arizona-Project that channels the Colorado River to Phoenix, civilizations have struggled to control water and wring out every drop of this precious resource. Despite the gains produced by technological and architectural ingenuity, changing climate and a rising population threaten our freshwater resources and ecosystems globally. Join panelists – scientists and public policy experts – to discuss the future of water in the Southwest, and globally, and how to develop better, more sustainable water practices.

The event is being held on the Tempe Campus of Arizona State University. The forum includes a student poster session and a tour and demonstration of the Decision Theater - Water Simulation program.
