What We Do

  • We operate local and statewide networks to collect high-quality data that define natural and human-induced hydrologic conditions.
  • We analyze hydrologic processes through investigations and research to increase understanding of important water-resource issues and to promote informed decision making.
  • We maintain real-time and historical data bases and publish peer-reviewed interpretive and data reports to disseminate unbiased hydrologic information.

To assure that our work is relevant and useful, we form partnerships with Federal, State, and local agencies, and other public organizations. Our science plan describes and helps define our Center's science directions.
