H142:
Water, Energy, and Society in Urban Systems 





Session ID#: 25715

Session Description:
Urbanization creates areas of intense hydrological and ecological modification leading to complex hydrologic flow paths and altered energy balance dynamics, infrastructure stresses, and novel ecosystem configurations. A growing body of work is characterizing urban hydrologic systems and links to society, economy, and public health. However, climate change, aging infrastructure, and substantial material fluxes modify and complicate these coupled systems. Continued inquiry and synthesis reveals unexpected interactions and impacts present in urban systems. This session invites a diversity of research associated with process, impacts, and mitigation in urban systems, with a focus on complex relationships among hydrology, ecology, climatic, energy, society, and green infrastructure approaches.
