A subreddit for Hydrology. Hydrology is the study of the movement, distribution, and quality of water on Earth and other planets, including the hydrologic cycle, water resources and environmental watershed sustainability. A practitioner of hydrology is a hydrologist, working within the fields of earth or environmental science, physical geography, geology or civil and environmental engineering.
I'm a landscape architect currently working on improving the living conditions along a river in a nearby small town. The town used to have an eutrophic lake, which they solved by putting a pipe inside that spits out the hypolimnion waters into the connected rivers. This fixed the lake, but now the river is like a sewer. I'm looking around for methods to at least lessen the impact of the pipe on the river. One thing we're planning is to plant phosphorus-hungry plants along it. I'm searching for people with any experience with this or similar issues, who could share their advice. What you did and how it went. Any help will be deeply appreciated.
I'm heading off to school at Indiana University, Bloomington, and I was looking into either structuring my coursework towards or specializing in Hydrology. I was reading that since very few schools offer programs for Hydrology, most Physical Science degrees are suitable. Hydrology is a high paying profession and I could take it almost most places. What do you guys think?
I recently graduated with an exercise science degree and was planing to go to physical therapy school. My interests have changed and nothing related to my original degree looks appealing. I stumbled upon hydrology and it really caught my interest. I’ve done research about programs and there’s only one semi local university that has a hydrology program. I feel like it’s always a little daunting reading about programs and classes before you take them so I’m looking to get some feedback about what people thought of their undergrad experience.
Ex: what workload to expect, how challenging the program is, things you wish you would have known, etc....
When a timestamped observation is referring to a mean or total value (e.g. rainfall collected over a 30 minute period for a tipping bucket raingauge), does the timestamp refer to the 30 minutes of time before the timestamp or 30 minutes after the timestamp.
hello dear redditors, I am not sure if should post this in here (but it is worth a shot). I need your help to find an internship for a period of 3-4 months (starting October 2019) based in Europe (I am not a EU citizen).
I am a PhD student and I am working on the subject of water resources management.
I am working for a floating solar PV company. The Floater mesh requires anchoring based on water velocity. I have cusecs and velocity data at Reservoir gates. I want to create a 'velocity raster' that will show max water velocity possible at each pixel within a defined area on the reservoir. This is when gates are open full. I am new to hydrology but know fair bit of remote sensing and GIS. Any idea how this could be achieved? I have bathymetry data as well.
