Synopses (one or a maximum of two printed A4 pages, including figures and references) covering various areas of isotope hydrology and related disciplines are welcome, and may be requested for an oral or poster presentation, in a specific session. Where the number of oral requests exceeds the slots available, the IAEA reserves the right to assign papers to an appropriate poster session.
