About the Department

IAHS International Commission on Tracers

Jeff McDonnell is outgoing President of the International Commission on Tracers (ICT). This commission is the body within the International Association of Hydrological Sciences that is responsible for promoting the use of tracers in hydrology.

It co-operates with the other Commissions of the IAHS in bringing expertise concerning tracers into the hydrological studies and research, in order to contribute to adequate management and development of water resources in an environmentally sustainable way.

ICT also emphasizes the transfer of theoretical knowledge of tracers to application in the field. Once this transfer takes place, the knowledge gained from fundamental scientific tracer studies can be used in the day to day management of water resources.

In relation to ICT, Prof. McDonnell helped define the new Joint International Isotope Hydrology Program (JIIIP). He and ICT work closely with IAEA and UNESCO in this regard.
