Assessing the National Streamflow Information Program Water Resources Association. His two main research areas are water demand management (urban water conservation planning and evaluation, water demand forecasting, modeling of water use in urban sectors) and urban drought (drought planning and management; measurement of economic, social, and environmental drought impacts). He is editor-in-chief of Water International and is an honorary lifetime member of the Water Conservation Committee of the American Water Works Association. He received his B.S. and M.S. in environmental engineering from Wroclaw Polytechnic University, Wroclaw, Poland, and his Ph.D. in geography and environmental engineering from Southern Illinois University. Richard Howitt is professor of economics at the University of California-Davis. Dr. Howitt’s research focuses on resource and environmental economics, quantitative methods, and econometrics. His interests include developing calibration methods based on maximum entropy estimators to model the economic structure of resource use from disaggregated physical data, including remote sensing methods, to infer the underlying economic functions. Much of his research has focused on California’s water resources, including water markets in the San Joaquin Valley and the West-lands Water District. He has published in such areas as river water quality, water use, water management, and water institutions. Dr. Howitt received his Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in economics from the University of California-Davis. N. LeRoy Poff is an associate professor in the Biology Department of Colorado State University. Dr. Poff received a B.A. in biology from Hendrix College, an M.S. in environmental sciences from Indiana University in Bloomington, and a Ph.D. in biology from Colorado State University. His primary research interests are in stream and aquatic ecology and in quantifying the responses of riverine ecosystems to natural and altered hydrologic regimes, from local to watershed to regional scales. Dr. Poff has served as a member of the Adaptive Management Forum for CALFED river restoration projects, the Scientific Review Team for the King County (Seattle, WA) Normative Flows Project, the Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee for American Rivers, and the Scientific Advisory Board of the David H. Smith Conservation Research Fellowship Program for The Nature Conservancy. He is also an Aldo Leopold Leadership Fellow of the Ecological Society of America. Karen L. Prestegaard is an associate professor of geology at the University of Maryland. Her research interests include sediment transport and
