Research and Technology Transfers Projects at HRC involve management, estimation, uncertaintly analysis, and prediction on time scales from real-time to weeks for hydrologic variables such as precipitation, soil moisture, channel flow, and river discharge. Information about hydrologic variables form the basis for data collection, dissemination, flood warning, and reservoir management systems designed and implemented by HRC.

A brief description of completed and current projects are can be found by selecting the title links below. Projects are arranged alphabetically. Site-specific projects are described, yet keep in mind that most projects at HRC generally have global applicability.
