Experts to discuss global water crisis
Date:9/29/2008

I>Sandra Postel is a leading environmental researcher focusing on conservation and sustainable use of global water resources. She is the author of several books on water resources, including the acclaimed books Pillar of Sand: Can the Irrigation Miracle Last? and Last Oasis: Facing Water Scarcity, which was the basis for a PBS documentary. Postel's presentation, "Rivers and Wetlands Need Water, Too! The Missing Piece in Water Policy," will focus on how current water infrastructure systems such as dams, reservoirs, pumps and canals have damaged the ecosystem and the natural ways that water is distributed to many areas of the world. She believes that a new system of strategies are needed to make sure that basic human needs are met, while also promoting the well-being of this natural eco-infrastructure.

More than 8,000 scientists and professionals will gather at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, 5 to 9 October to discuss the latest research and trends in energy, water resources, climate change, agriculture, science education, and more. This is the first-ever Joint Annual Meeting of the Geological Society of America, Soil Science Society of America, American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Gulf Coast Association of Geological Societies. For meeting information, visit: www.acsmeetings.org or contact GSA's Christa Stratton or SSSA-ASA-CSSA's Sara Uttech.
