  Welcome to the Isotope Hydrology Section
The present state of isotope hydrology is related in part to the efforts of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), an organization that has played a pivotal role in promoting and expanding the field of isotope hydrology over the last four decades.
IAEA activities continue to facilitate development and integration of isotope techniques in hydrology through its major areas of activity which include: (i) research and development, (ii) global databases and reference materials, (iii) education and training; and (iv) technology transfer.
A series of six volumes on various aspects of isotope hydrology was recently published by the IAEA in cooperation with UNESCO.

In hydrology, the discharge of a river is the volume of water transported by it in a certain amount of time.
The discharge of a river is calculated by taking the area of a cross-section of the river and multiplying it by the river's velocity.
Hydrology is the study of water and its properties, scientific laws, and distribution.

These effects are illustrated in Figure 4 where discharge in segment 121 is increased greatly by a road network when cut depths are equal to the full soil depth.
In the first two hours of the storm discharge is the same in all three scenarios because the area contributing directly to the channel has not extended upslope to the road system.
Simulated discharge is presented without roads, with road cut depths one-half the soil thickness, and roadcut depths equal to the total soil thickness.

 Interfan area >>Climate/Hydrology >>Discharge
Discharge characteristics of a river are measured through various discharge parameters (Table).
Not only that the actual size of peak discharge is extremely variable from year to year for all rivers, there seems to be no distinct relationship in pattern or range of variation between the upstream and downstream stations of a particular river.
It seems therefore that peak discharge at a particular station is a function of local flood waves created by tributaries apart from the monsoon rains in the plains.

 Campus Journal: Professor contributes to first ever encyclopedia of hydrology
With the second oldest hydrology program in the United States and the only one in New England, it is no surprise that Wiley turned to UNH for expertise in the study of the movement of water.
The conventional method for measuring river discharge uses stream flow gauges set in the river itself, but this method is costly — a major reason why stream flow monitoring programs are declining worldwide.
“Discharge measurements provide a lot of information about what is going on hydrologically and it’s a very sensitive indicator of climate change, as well — more sensitive than precipitation changes, for example,” said Dingman.

 Hydrograph - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In surface water hydrology, a hydrograph is a time record of the discharge of a stream, river or watershed outlet.
A hydrograph is often compared to a hyetograph of the watershed.
In subsurface hydrology (hydrogeology), a hydrograph is a record of the water level (the observed hydraulic head in wells screened across an aquifer).

Discharge at-a-station is quite variable seasonally, from day-to-day, and even from minute to minute during flood events.
This is the lowest discharge (calculated as average discharge over a 7-day period) expected to be observed once every 10 years on average.
These peak discharge and low flow values were calculated using the full period of record available for the gaging station (50 years or more at most of these stations).

 WETLAND HYDROLOGY
Wetland hydrology encompasses all hydrologic characteristics of areas that are periodically inundated or have soils saturated to the surface at some time during the growing season.
Areas with evident characteristics of wetland hydrology are those with the presence of water has an overriding influence on characteristics of vegetation and soils due to anaerobic and reducing conditions.
Such characteristics are usually present in areas that are inundated or have soils that are saturated to the surface for sufficient duration to develop hydric soils and support vegetation typically adapted for life in periodically anaerobic conditions.

 ecohydrology defined, eco-hydrology defined
The interaction of hydrology and ecological processes involved in soil diagenesis influences stream flow, water quality, and geomorphology in the local drainage basin and the carbon cycle and climate on a global scale.
But, just as flow and sediment discharge interact to determine the geomorphology of river and stream ecosystems, freshwater discharge and internal mixing processes interact to determine the salinity regime, stratification of the water column, and circulation characteristic of each estuary.
Changes in hydrology derived from climate and human activities on the watershed have both long- and short-term effects on coastal ecosystems.

 Tidal Hydrology, Hydraulics, and Scour at Bridges Hydraulic Engineering Circular No. 25 Chapter 3 - Hydraulics ...
Unlike the analysis of bridge hydraulics for extreme conditions on rivers, where the discharge is known for a given flood frequency, tidal hydraulic methods are used to compute the peak discharge during an astronomical tide, hurricane storm surge or hurricane storm tide.
The peak discharge occurs for the maximum head differential, which can occur at elevations other than mid-tide, but is often assumed to occur at mid-tide.
The ocean storm tide is input as a function of time, the bay storage is related to bay water surface elevation, and the discharge through the waterway is calculated from the head differential between the ocean and the bay.

 Scope 35 - Scales and Global Change, Chapter 12, Variability of the Fluvial System in Space and Time
The morphology and hydrology of the fluvial system is related to the controlling of independent variables that produce the morphologic and cascading characteristics of Zone 1 (Table 12.1) and which, in turn, significantly influence Zones 2 and 3.
It is the volume and type of sediment and discharge volume and flow character that largely determines channel morphology and the nature of fluvial deposits that form in Zones 2 and 3 (variables 11 and 12).
Water discharge determines the dimensions of the channel (width, depth, meander dimensions), but the relative proportions of bed load (sand and gravel), and suspended load (silts and clays) determine not only the shape of the channel but width-depth ratio and channel pattern.

 Hydrologic calculation for storm runoff discharge and curve numbers for watersheds
Relying upon extensive research, Technical Release 55 (TR-55: SCS, 1986) presents a methodical and reliable approach to predicting peak discharge due to a 24-hr storm event.
Peak discharge, runoff depth, initial abstraction, unit peak discharge, and pond/swamp factor are computed as follows:
"Overall CN must be 40 to 100." The runoff and peak discharge calculations are only valid for CN between 40 and 100.

By collecting data on the geomorphology and hydrology, we ultimately plan to assess sensitivity of physical stream habitat in Bear Creek to environmental change.
Hydrology: As discharge changes, the amount of stream channel that is inundated changes, and the combination of depth and velocity at any particular location also varies.
A two-dimensional hydraulic model uses the topography of the stream channel in combination with hydraulic parameters to calculate the depth and velocity that would occur at a set of points in the stream channel for a given discharge.

The overall goal of this working group will be to define more accurately and completely how submarine groundwater discharge influences chemical and biological processes in the coastal ocean.
Recognition of the importance of groundwater flow into surface waters as a pathway for dissolved constituents has increased dramatically in the last few years.
The strength of the workshop was that it brought together scientists with disparate backgrounds (e.g., hydrology, chemical oceanography) who have been working on similar problems from different points of view - literally from the opposite ends of the same process.
