  DEQ - Introduction to Hydrology
Hydrology has evolved as a science in response to the need to understand the complex water systems of the earth and help solve water problems.
Hydrology is the science that encompasses the occurrence, distribution, movement and properties of the waters of the earth and their relationship with the environment within each phase of the hydrologic cycle.
The hydrologic cycle is a continuous process by which water is purified by evaporation and transported from the earth's surface (including the oceans) to the atmosphere and back to the land and oceans.

  Hydrology - MSN Encarta
Hydrology, scientific study of the waters of the Earth, including their occurrence, distribution in space and time, and their relation to people and the natural environment.
Hydrology studies all aspects of the movement of water on the surface of the Earth and within the underlying soil and rocks.
Hydrology overlaps with the scientific study of water in the oceans and atmosphere, but these are primarily the responsibility of oceanography and meteorology.

Hydrology, in its simplest form, is the study of water.
More technically hydrology is the study of the occurrence and movement of water in the soil, atmosphere, rivers, lakes, and oceans, and underground aquifers.

 hydrology. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
Hydrology is principally concerned with the part of the cycle after the precipitation of water onto the land and before its return to the oceans; thus meteorology and oceanography are closely related to hydrology.
Hydrology is also important to the study of water pollution, especially of groundwater and other potable water supplies.
Knowledge of hydrology is extensively used to determine the movement and extent of contamination from landfills, mine runoff, and other potentially contaminated sites to surface and subsurface water.

 yourDictionary.com Agora Discussion Board
The only definition I can find of the word "hydrology" is the a broad definition relating to the science and study of water etc. but it seems like it is also used as a noun to describe the structure or the water-related properties of a specific site.
The hydrology is just one factor in the ecology and the geology of a site, region, or planet, just as it is one factor to consider when designing and building structures.
As I stated the hydrology is defined as the science/study of water relationships.

 Introduction - Hydrology Effects on Recruitment in Herbaceous Carolina Bays
Hydrology differs among Carolina bays, which are elliptical isolated depression wetlands of the southeastern US coastal plain.
We examined the relationships among hydrology, recruitment from the propagule bank, and extant vegetation over one season within and among six herbaceous bays that differ in hydroperiod and basin shape.
We compared composition of vegetation that developed from the cores among hydrology treatments and with extant bay vegetation to test the general hypothesis that hydrology is the primary filter on recruitment and species distribution.

 International Conference on Wadi Hydrology - Nov. 21-23, 2000
The NWRC is organizing its yearly conference, to be held 21-23 November 2000, on the theme of ""Wadi Hydrology." Wadi is the Arabic word for ephemeral watercourse.
Because of the unpredictable character of the wadis, they are often under-utilized, and valid scientific understanding of wadi hydrology is sorely lacking.
The main conference topics will be as follows: data acquisition in arid and semi-arid areas; hydrology processes in arid and semi-arid areas; flood design and management; integrated water resources development; and sustainable management of wadi systems.

 hydrology
Typically, one of the main goals of wetland restoration is to restore the hydrology of a particular wetland.
Because wetland hydrology is such a broad topic in wetland restoration, this next paragraph will provide you with a very basic description of the importance of hydrology and its functions in wetland ecosystems.
Because hydrology plays a vital role in the structure of a wetland's ecosystem, particularly by acting as the main pathway in which nutrients are transported in and out of the system, the vegetation and species composition are significantly effected when natural or man made hydrologic alterations occur.
