Master in Hydrological and Oceanic Sciences

National Central University

Founded in 2001, the Institute of Hydrological Sciences (IHS) provides opportunities in research and education in three major areas: global hydrological cycles, hydrosphere environmental sciences, and information-technology based hydro-hazard mitigation. Through analysis, observation, and multi-scale modeling, the IHS seeks to investigate various processes and phenomena crucial to the environmental sustainability pertaining to the hydrological cycle, including climate change, land-ocean-atmosphere interactions, precipitation processes, surface/subsurface hydrology, coastal ocean processes and aquatic biogeochemistry. IHS welcomes domestic as well as international collaboration, which is much needed for attacking research topics of regional to global scale. Currently, IHS has seven full-time faculty members with diverse but solid backgrounds and offers M.S. and Ph.D. programs.
