This year represents the 50th anniversary of Water Resources Research, whose first issue was published in March 1965. As one celebration of this milestone the Editorial Board organized this Special Section, which looks back on 50 years of research activity and provides a perspective for future research focusing on water systems for the development and benefit of society. Contributing authors were asked to provide an overview on the history, development, and future of hydrological sciences, by focusing on scientific challenges in water sustainability, the important issues at the interface of water science and society, and the new technologies of monitoring and assessment.
