A Look to the Future in Watershed Managementby Albert Rango, USDA, Agricultural Research Service, Hydrology Lab, Beltsville, MD, USA,
Abstract: The discipline of watershed management will continue as a viable specialized field as the scarcity, demand, and price of water increase in the future. Training of watershed managers should include a strong foundation in basic science or engineering followed by elective or graduate work in watershed-science courses. The important future problems for watershed management are plentiful, but the areas of emphasis should include ground and surface water quality, modeling and computerization, remote sensing and data transmission, large area hydrology, and international applications.
