AOGS-2017 Session on "Impacts and Consequences of Changing Climate and Landuse on Hydrology (HS-11)" to be held in Singapore during 6-11 August 2017

Welcome to HYDRO-CRG

The HYDRO-CRG research group belongs to the Water Resources Engineering Section in Department of Civil Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi.

The HYDRO-CRG group is primarily interested in unveiling different aspects of hydro-climatology, a multidisciplinary field integrating hydrology and climate science. Different facets of hydrological cycle are focussed by better understanding the processes associated, through an integrated approach of data analysis, modeling and theory.

Our present research involves impact assessment of climate change on water resources, regional scale modeling studies and land surface processes, sensitivity and uncertainty in distributed hydrological models, causal modeling through data mining, predictability and inherent nonlinearity in hydrological time series (As we explore more, this list keeps growing...)

Recent Research Highlights

Spatiotemporal variations and trends in the extreme (wet and dry) Indian monsoon precipitation, using 0.25 degree high-resolution gridded data for a period of 113 years (1901-2013). Refer Full Article

New statistical downscaling algorithms developed to overcome the two common limitations in climate change impact assessment studies i.e., future relationship stationarity and inferior simulation of extreme episodes. Refer Dynamic coupling of SVM and KNN and Phase Space Reconstruction and CART


The algorithms, source codes, datasets developed by our research group and any other relevant study material will be made available here in the near future
