Hydrology

Water – the elixir of life. A resource we cannot live without and yet nearly one and a half billion people do not have access to fresh water. It is clear the science of hydrology plays a major role in not only sustaining but improving our ever changing world. Water is a necessary part of our every day existence and therefore so is hydrology. The significance of the science of hydrology, combined with its closeness with other biosciences such as meteorology and geology, demand tools that are tailored to the interdisciplinary biosciences.

Why GenStat?
