Hydrological sciences

  1. Hydrological Sciences

Hydrology encompasses the availability, distribution, movement and quality of the waters of the earth and its relationship with the environment within every phase of the water cycle. The water cycle also known as the hydrologic cycle is a continuous process by which water is circulated from the earth's surface (including the oceans) to the atmosphere and back to the surface. Surface water hydrology is the study of surface water distribution and the movement of surface water. It encompasses all surface water sources including rivers, lakes, ponds, marshes, estuaries and wetlands.  Flow variability and variability in water quantity are of particular interest in climate change studies. Hydrogeology or groundwater hydrology encompasses the occurrence, distribution and movement of groundwater mainly through aquifers, usually less than a depth of 500m.  Despite being critical to the survival of mankind and all life, water resources are being over exploited. The quality and quantity of fresh water sources is being severely affected by climate change, be it by changing amounts of precipitation or extreme weather events. Long term lasting solutions for the conservation of water resources are required which includes water usage with maximal efficiency, water access to all of adequate quality and quantity and the use and management of the resource in an environmentally and ecologically sustainable manner- the three E’s of the IWRM framework.

 

The session will focus on contributions on surface water and groundwater hydrology, limnology and practices in integrated water resource management at all scales.
