Happy International Women's Day

A great opportunity to remember and applaud the achievements of Elizabeth Shaw, one of the UK's foremost female hydrologists.

Elizabeth Shaw was a hydrologist who was best known throughout the world for her textbook 'Hydrology in Practice'. Her life story was equally interesting - see Circulation No. 118 (www.hydrology.org.uk/Publications/Circulation 118.php) which also referred to her passing as marking the end of an era in British hydrology. That may be true in the sense of the paucity of female hydrologists during her professional life-time but she would surely be amazed and delighted at how that situation has changed today.
