Hydrology Laboratory conducts studies, investigations and analyses leading to the application of new scientific and computer technologies for hydrologic forecasting and related water resources problems. Hydrology Laboratory sponsors and conducts applied research in order to gain a better understanding of the physical processes and phenomena involved in the evaluation and prediction of water movement in all phases of the hydrologic cycle. Research and development support for the hydrology-related components of major NWS projects is provided, notably the NEXRAD and AWIPS. HL personnel provide training and implementation support on hydrologic forecasting techniques in support of the NWS hydrologic services program.
