In its simplest sense, hydrology is the study of water. However, in reality it’s much more complex.

Hydrologists study many things, including the interaction of the water with the earth’s crust; how precipitation impacts groundwater availability and river levels and therefore affects people; and how water is contaminated and how it can be fixed. While groundwater hydrologists focus their efforts on the water below the earth’s surface, surface water hydrologists concentrate on groundwater sources. Hydrologists may also specialize in certain areas, such as groundwater remediation and glacial meltaways.

A bachelor’s degree is the minimum education requirement for entry-level jobs in hydrology, and a graduate degree in the natural sciences will help you stand out from the crowd. Additionally, professional licensing may be required, depending on where you live. Aspiring hydrologists must also have strong communication, people, teamwork, and public relations skills.

Hydrologists, who may work in the office or the field, are employed in a variety of sectors, including for federal, state and local governments; for management, scientific and technical consulting services; and for engineering services. They may also work alongside professionals in related fields, such as engineers, scientists, and policymakers.
