Projects

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.
