2009 Boggess Award

The William R. Boggess Award is given to the author or authors of the paper, published in the Journal of the American Water Resources Association during the preceding year, that best describes, delineates, or analyzes a major problem or aspect of water resources from either a theoretical, applied, or philosophical standpoint. Established in 1973, the Award honors William R. “Randy” Boggess, a member of AWRA, one of the first Directors, and a former President of the Association, who has also made significant contributions to AWRA as an Editor of JAWRA.

I am pleased to report the winner of the 2009 Boggess Award, chosen from among the 2008 JAWRA papers is:

D. Garrick, K. Jacobs, and G. Garfin: Models, assumptions, and stakeholders: Planning for water-supply variability in the Colorado River Basin, April 2008, 381-398.
