IJHST is a peer-reviewed international journal covering research and practical studies on hydrological science, technology, water resources and related topics including water, air and soil pollution and hazardous waste issues. IJHST was initiated to communicate ideas, findings, methods, techniques or summaries of interesting projects or investigations in the area of hydrology.


 Topics covered include

  • Dams and modelling reservoir operations
  • Geostatistics
  • Groundwater modelling
  • Climate change and variability
  • Eco-hydrology and hydro-ecology
  • Flood and drought regionalisation and control
  • Rainfall and wind analysis
  • Remote sensing, GIS and data analysis
  • River and sediment engineering
  • Urban, surface, snow and karst hydrology
  • Water distribution networks
  • Water resources engineering and best management practices
  • Water policy, economics and scarcity
  • Water reuse and wetlands
  • Water, soil and air quality and pollution
  • Water use and consumption

More on this journal...

The main objective of IJHST is the promotion of hydrological science and technology through challenging traditional and conventional methods and publishing new methods in global, regional and national changing climates. IJHST covers the effects of urbanisation, agriculture, industry, forestry, etc., and the research undertaken and needed to better define their effects on water resources.

IJHST allows the viewpoints of cities, factories, farmers, fisheries, foresters, etc. to be brought together to answer questions about how technical problems are addressed and solved, and how management issues are decided between competing hydrological resources. IJHST aims to strengthen the partnerships between water scientists, engineers, geologists, chemists, biologists and the other disciplines to develop current hydrology methods. It helps define the knowledge that is required to make informed hydrological decisions.


IJHST provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work. Such a readership will be working in the field of hydrological technology management, science, engineering and business education as surface hydrologists, groundwater hydrologists, hydrometeorologists, hydrogeologists, agrometeorologists, environmental scientists, physical geographers, agricultural hydrologists, ecohydrologists, river engineers, environmental geologists, hydroecologists, civil engineers and environmental statisticians.


IJHST publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, notes and case studies. Special Issues devoted to important topics in hydrological technology science and engineering will occasionally be published.
