Department of Earth Sciences
Hydrologists find, manage and conserve the water resources needed by society; facilitate the mitigation of natural disasters; and plan for climate change. The demand for skilled geoscientists in the United States and worldwide is expected to double in coming years. Students with a hydrology M.S. are well equipped for jobs in either the public or private sector that require knowledge of hydrologic fluxes, field and laboratory analytical techniques, quantitative and geospatial data analysis, and scientific communication.
This program is intended for students with an interest in ground- and surface-water hydrology, water quality, quantitative and statistical hydrology, and water resource management. Durham, where the university is located, is situated where the Oyster River enters Great Bay, one of the most important estuaries of the Gulf of Maine. Only ten miles away are the Atlantic beaches and Portsmouth, a deep water harbor.
