Abstract : The National Symposium on the Use and Management of Water Resources took place from 9 to 13 September 1963 in the city of Canberra. At the symposium there were present, evidently, almost all prominent experts in Australia who are concerned with the study of water and moisture in all their forms in Australia (water in the atmosphere and ground, surface, and subsurface) as well as the use of water and moisture in all spheres of economic activity. A total of 40 reports was given during the symposium. The reports were grouped according to the following subjects (the figures show number of reports): future national prospects -- 6; basic data: precipitation -- 2, evaporation -- 3, surface waters -- 3, subsurface waters -- 4, methods used to process data -- 3; water balance: principles and analyses -- 6, use -- 5; social-economic problems -- 4; analyses and research -- 4; formation -- 2. Moreover, discussions took place concerning the International Hydrological Decade conducted under the aegis of the UN and UNESCO. (Author)
