• climate change
  • The Symposium will bring together scientists in the fields of hydrological sciences to share experiences and to exchange ideas on advances in hydrology for the management of finite water resources in the face of potential climate change impacts. (wrc.org.za)
  • developments
  • A large portion of snow hydrology groups are pursuing new methods for incorporating snow hydrology into distributed models over complex terrain through theoretical developments, model development and testing with field and remote sensing data sets. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sciences
  • Hydrology and Earth System Sciences. (wikipedia.org)
  • In hydrology and related sciences and technologies, a cline is a comparatively thin, typically horizontal layer within a fluid, in which a property of the fluid varies greatly over a relatively short vertical distance. (wikipedia.org)
  • field
  • Though most of the knowledge in the field of snow hydrology has been discovered in the last two centuries, there is evidence that some understanding existed as early as 500-428BC in the Greek states. (wikipedia.org)
  • Snow hydrologists focus specifically on movement and composition of snow and ice, within the field of hydrology. (wikipedia.org)
  • river
  • This layer of sediment changes the hydrology of the river around it, as once this layer on the bottom is formed it affects the hydraulics of the river. (wikipedia.org)
  • In hydrology, crest is the highest level above a certain point (the datum point, or reference point) that a river will reach in a certain amount of time. (wikipedia.org)
  • complex
  • The ancient Sinhalese used hydrology to build complex irrigation works in Sri Lanka, also known for invention of the Valve Pit which allowed construction of large reservoirs, anicuts and canals which still function. (wikipedia.org)
  • Snow hydrology is quite complex and involves both mass and energy balance calculations over a time-varying snow pack which is influenced by spatial location in the watershed, interaction with vegetation and redistribution by winds. (wikipedia.org)
  • activities
  • In traditional hydrology, human activities are typically described as boundary conditions, or external forcings, to the water systems (scenario-based approach). (wikipedia.org)
  • environment
  • In particular, while IWRM aims at controlling the water system to get desired outcomes for the environment and society, socio-hydrology aims at observing, understanding, and predicting the dynamics of coupled human-water systems. (wikipedia.org)
  • currently
  • These three labs were: Central sierra Snow Laboratory (CSSL) Upper Columbia Snow Laboratory (USCL) Willamette Basin Snow Laboratory (WBSL) Currently there are hundreds of snow hydrology labs and sensing devices placed throughout the world. (wikipedia.org)
