Hydrogeology is the branch of geology concerned with water occurring underground or on the surface of the earth. The very shallow flow of water in the subsurface is pertinent to the fields of soil science, agriculture and civil engineering, as well as to hydrogeology. It is the scientific study of the occurrence, distribution, and effects of groundwater.

Watershed management is an adaptive, comprehensive, integrated multi-resource management planning process that seeks to balance healthy ecological, economic, and cultural/social conditions within a watershed. It takes into account both ground and surface water flow, recognizing and planning for the interaction of water, plants, animals and human land use found within the physical boundaries of a watershed.

Water & Wastewater Treatment
Water & Wastewater Treatment is the process to convert water no longer needed or suitable for its most recent use - into an effluent that can be either returned to the water cycle with minimal environmental issues or reused. In other words it is the process of removing contaminants from wastewater. It modifies wastewater characteristics such as its biological oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD), pH, etc.

Eco hydrology is the study of hydrology focused on ecological aspects of hydrological cycle. Eco hydrology is elements of ecology with hydrology and investigates the effects of hydrological processes on the distribution, structure, and function of biota, and on the effects of biotic processes on water-ecosystem processes. These interactions may take place within water bodies, such as rivers and lakes, or on land, in forests, deserts, and other terrestrial ecosystems.

Hydroinformatics deals with the application of information and communications technologies in addressing the increasingly serious problems of the equitable and efficient use of water for many different purposes. In other words hydroinformatics is the modeling and information systems for water management.
Hydroinformatics is a branch of informatics which concentrates on the application of information and communications technologies (ICTs) in addressing the increasingly serious problems of the equitable and efficient use of water for many different purposes. Growing out of the earlier discipline of computational hydraulics, the numerical simulation of water flows and related processes remains a mainstay of hydroinformatics, which encourages a focus not only on the technology but on its application in a social context.

Floodway analysis is the channel of a river or other watercourse and the adjacent land areas that must be reserved in order to discharge the base flood without cumulatively increasing the water surface elevation more than a designated height. Floodway are the areas of high velocity and depth where the flood hazard is high.

Water quality is the chemical, physical, biological, and radiological characteristics of water. Water quality is measured by several factors, such as the concentration of dissolved oxygen, bacteria levels, the amount of salt, or the amount of material suspended in the water. It also sustains ecological processes that support native fish populations, vegetation, wetlands and birdlife.

River Water is a large natural flow of water that crosses an area of land and goes into an ocean, a lake, etc. Rivers are part of the hydrological cycle. Small rivers can be referred to using names such as stream, creek, brook, rivulet, and rill.

Desalination is the processes that remove minerals from saline water to make it suitable for human consumption and/or industrial use he most common desalination methods employ reverse-osmosis in which salt water is forced through a membrane that allows water molecules to pass but blocks the molecules of salt and other minerals.

Water resources are sources of water that are useful. Uses of water include agricultural, industrial, household, recreational and environmental activities. The majority of human uses require fresh water. Water resources are used in various ways including direct consumption, agricultural irrigation, fisheries, hydropower, industrial production, recreation, navigation, environmental protection, the disposal and treatment of sewage, and industrial effluents.

Drainage basin is the area drained by a river and all its tributaries. Drainage basin is also known as catchment area. It is an area of land where surface water from rain, melting snow, or ice converges to a single point at a lower elevation, usually the exit of the basin, where the waters join another water body, such as a river, lake, reservoir, estuary, wetland, sea, or ocean.

Climate Change & Remote Sensing
Climate Change & Remote Sensing is the science of collecting data on an area from a considerable distance, with the help of radar or infrared photography, to observe the earth or a heavenly body these sensors can be on satellites or mounted on aircraft. Remote sensors can be either passive or active. Passive sensors respond to external stimuli. They record natural energy that is reflected or emitted from the Earth's surface.

Irrigation Hydrology is the artificial application of water to land to assist in the production of crops. Irrigation Hydrology is supply with water by means of pipes, sprinklers, ditches, or streams. Irrigation is the watering of land to make it ready for agriculture. In other word it is the watering of land by artificial means to foster plant growth.

Infiltration is the process by which water on the ground surface enters the soil. Infiltration rate in soil science is a measure of the rate at which soil is able to absorb rainfall or irrigation. It is measured in inches per hour or millimeters per hour. The rate decreases as the soil becomes saturated. If the precipitation rate exceeds the infiltration rate, runoff will usually occur unless there is some physical barrier. It is related to the saturated hydraulic conductivity of the near-surface soil. The rate of infiltration can be measured using an infiltrometer.
Surface water is water on the surface of the planet such as in a stream, river, lake, wetland, or ocean. It can be contrasted with groundwater and atmospheric water. Non-saline surface water is replenished by precipitation and by recruitment from ground-water. It is lost through evaporation, seepage into the ground where it becomes ground-water, used by plants for transpiration, extracted by mankind for agriculture, living, industry etc. or discharged to the sea where it becomes saline.
Isotope hydrology is a field of hydrology that uses isotopic dating to estimate the age and origins of water and of movement within the hydrologic cycle. The techniques are used for water-use policy, mapping aquifers, conserving water supplies, and controlling pollution. It replaces or supplements past methods of measuring rain, river levels and other bodies of water over many decades.
Hydrology is the branch of science which deals with the movement, distribution, and quality of water on Earth and other planets. Hydrology response to the need to understand the complex water system of the earth and help solve water problems. The water cycle, or hydrologic cycle, is a continuous process by which water is purified by evaporation and transported from the earth's surface to the atmosphere and back to the land and oceans.

*Unofficial 2015 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2013 and 2014 with the number of times they are cited in 2015 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2013 and 2014, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2015 than, impact factor = Y/X
