The root meaning of the word hydrology is water science that deals with the occurrence, movement, and distribution of water in the earth with a search of its physical quantities and chemical qualities. In practice, it is concerned with water cycle major elements including evaporation, precipitation, runoff, and groundwater recharge. Although there are different aspects in hydrology research domain, the most important topics are flood and drought features and their predictions to hinder harmful consequences on human society.
