About Hydrological Processing
Hydrological processing is the natural sequence through which water passes into the atmosphere as water vapor, precipitates to earth, and returns to the atmosphere through evaporation. The water cycle, or hydrologic cycle, is a continuous process by which water is purified by evaporation and transported from the earth surface (including the oceans) to the atmosphere and back to the land and oceans. The engineering hydrologist, or water resources engineer, is involved in the planning, analysis, design, construction and operation of projects for the control, utilization, and management of water resources. Water resources problems are also the concern of meteorologists, oceanographers, geologists, chemists, physicists, biologists, economists, political scientists, specialists in applied mathematics and computer science, and engineers in several fields.
