Hydrology is the scientific study of the movement, distribution, and quality of water on Earth and other planets, including the water cyclewater resources and environmental watershed sustainability. A practitioner of hydrology is a hydrologist, working within the fields of earth or environmental sciencephysical geographygeology or civil and environmental engineering.

Hydrology subdivides into surface water hydrology, groundwater hydrology (hydrogeology), and marine hydrology. Domains of hydrology include hydrometeorologysurface hydrologyhydrogeologydrainage-basin management andwater quality, where water plays the central role.

Oceanography and meteorology are not included because water is only one of many important aspects within those fields.

Hydrological research can inform environmental engineering, policy and planning.
