As reported in the Transactions of March 1961 (p. 96), the ad hoc Panel on Hydrology convened to report on ways of stimulating research in scientific hydrology, recommended a program of international cooperation in hydrology—more specifically a plan for an ‘International Decade for Hydrology,’ as drawn for the Panel by R. L. Nace. The proposal for an international program in scientific hydrology was submitted to the Council of the International Association of Scientific Hydrology (IASH), meeting at Athens during October 1961, and was explained to them by Nace. The proposal was endorsed in principle by the country representatives who were present, and further endorsement is being requested of national committees not represented at Athens. The report of the ad hoc Panel on International Cooperation in Hydrology will be published in a forthcoming Bulletin of the International Association of Scientific Hydrology.
