CSIRO Sustainable Development Investment Portfolio project. Hydrology plays the central role in the development and management of water resources and therefore, the protection of the environment. Hydrology forms a part of many diverse fields such as agriculture, civil engineering, environmental engineering, geology and earth sciences, as well as forestry and meteorology. Written specifically for 5/5(1). Hydrologists play a vital role in finding solutions to water problems, and interesting and challenging careers are available to those who choose to study hydrology. Water and People Estimates of water use in the United States indicate that about billion gallons per day (one thousand million gallons per day, abbreviated Bgal/d) were.

As a science, hydrology has both basic and applied aspects. The first relates to questions about the Earth system, and specifically about the role of water in natural processes, particularly as related to the Earth’s biosphere. The second relates to using scientific knowledge to provide a sound basis for wise usage of water resources. Water resources management is a complex topic that requires consideration of a broad range of social, economic, and environmental interests. S.J. Marshall, in Reference Module in Earth Systems and Environmental Sciences, Water resource management includes consideration of all of the above disciplines of hydrology.   Water resources management may still be focused on controlling and mitigating the adverse impacts of floods and droughts and water pollution, on producing hydropower, on developing irrigation, on controlling erosion and sediment, and on promoting navigation, but only as these and similar activities are compatible with healthy by: 2. As the world places more emphasis on sustainable water supplies, the demand for expertise in hydrology and water resources continues to increase. This series is intended for professional engineers, who seek a firm foundation in hydrology and an ability to apply this knowledge to solve problems in water resource management.
