The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has convened quadrennial symposia on isotope hydrology since 1963. Over the decades these symposia have provided opportunities to present and review analytical developments as well as applications and research trends in isotope hydrology. Nowadays, isotope hydrology is an established discipline within the field of Earth Sciences and makes important contributions to our understanding of hydrological processes, particularly in water resources assessment and management in the context of UN Sustainable Development Goal 6. The stable isotopes of the water molecule are key recorders of changes in the Earth’s climate. More recently, scientists used environmental isotopes in areas such as forensic sciences and ecology, food source traceability, and in water cycle studies.

This symposium is the 15th in the series and will be held at the IAEA’s Headquarters in Vienna, Austria, from 20 to 24 May 2019. The symposium aims to facilitate exchange of information and knowledge among water and environment professionals from developed and developing countries in order to advance scientific understanding, promote collaboration, and demonstrate new capabilities to respond to pressing global water challenges .
