IIASA's history of research accomplishments is recorded in a wide variety of research publications, correspondence files, annual reports, books and working papers. Especially in the area of water resources research, which has spanned the entire 15-year history of IIASA, this amounts to a sizable number of papers stored or stacked in a wide variety of places inside and outside of IIASA's home, Schloss Laxenburg. For some time I have thought it would be useful to have a summary report available to those who come to IIASA not knowing this history of experiences and accomplishments. Hence some months ago I asked Janusz Kindler, whose tenure of leadership of the water resources area was the longest of anyone to date, to undertake the writing of such a summary history. He subsequently asked Pete Loucks, who has observed what has been happening at IIASA since 1974, to help, and together they have prepared what is contained in the pages that follow.

Any recording of history is merely a perception. It could well be that the perception of what took place over these past 15 years, as summarized in this document, may contain errors or omissions. We hope everyone associated with IIASA's water resources research programs will send to the authors any comments they think would add to the completeness and accuracy of this record.
