Hydrology in mountainous regions: proceedings held at Lausanne, Switzerland, 27 August-1 September Author: International Association of Hydrological Sciences. Nature is complex and often surprising. Hydrology is essentially a natural science, and nature is often full of surprises. Studies show that we should beware of simplistic reasoning backed up by common sense, as it is often inaccurate.

In hydrology, as in many other natural sciences, observation and measurement prevail. Each section will review recent research in the field and illustrate key interactions with case studies from mountainous regions in Europe, The Americas and Central Asia.

Painter,4 Michael D. Dettinger,5 Robert Rice,1 and Jeff Dozier6 Received 1 July ; revised 28 April ; accepted 2 June ; published 26 August Cited by: Accurate precipitation inputs, both total amounts and changes with elevation, are critical to model streamflow in mountainous regions.

However, these regions are, in general, grossly under-sampled in terms of precipitation measurements, and those gauges that do exist are notoriously unreliable.

Despite the hydrologic importance of mountainous regions, the processes controlling energy and water fluxes within and out from these systems are not well understood. There exists a need to realize, at various spatial and temporal scales, the feedback systems be-tween hydrological fluxes and biogeochemical and ecological processes.

While we know a lot about contaminant fate and transport in cold regions, we must gain a better understanding of the effects of contamination and predicting the effectiveness of remedial actions.

Contaminant Hydrology: Cold Regions Modeling provides this knowledge, making it easier to choose cost-efficient and effective methods. Prolonged and frequent droughts in Southern California present hazards and uncertainty for the region’s increasing population, resulting in proactive and aggressive water management strategies.

Applied hydrology is the study of hydrological cycle, precipitation, runoff, relationship between precipitation and runoff, hydrographs, Flood Routing.

Alterations in hydrology caused by climate change are complex. A simple increase in average temperature results in greater evaporation from soils, drying them out and providing less water to plants and diminished input to groundwater.
