A Hydrologist is often also called a Water Engineer, Flood Engineer, or a Hydrology Engineer. A Hydrologist concerns themselves with research and development of long-term approaches to managing and safeguarding water resources, examining rainfall, rivers, and other waterways. They will work with a variety of organisations in business, government and academia, and be active in monitoring, managing and protecting water.
To address issues with water, such as amount, quality and availability, Hydrologists use scientific knowledge and mathematical concepts. Additionally, they might focus on identifying new water sources, forecasting droughts or floods, and lowering wastewater.
