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...)
