Southwest Hydrology to Close

Southwest Hydrology, the invaluable University of Arizona publication that is a frequent starting point when I’m researching an unfamiliar water topic, has lost its National Science Foundation funding and will be closed, Shaun McKinnon reports:

The magazine’s demise was announced in notes written by founding editor, Betsy Woodhouse and Gary Woodard, associate director of the UA’s SAHRA (Sustainability of semi-Arid Hydrology and Riparian Areas).

Woodard said the magazine, which has published 47 issues since its first in 2001, lost its funding from the National Science Foundation (not unexpectedly, Woodard noted) and couldn’t close the huge gap between the grants and advertising revenue.
