The Centre for Hydrology provides a focus and catalyst for hydrological research at the University of Saskatchewan. The Centre is an interdisciplinary University research cluster designed to bring together and coordinate academic, graduate student, postdoctoral and allied government research staff for research, training and outreach on hydrological issues of local and global importance and to coordinate the University presence in hydrology. It focusses on advancing the theory and practice of hydrology as a physical environmental science, and emphasizes research and training related to improving descriptions and explanations of the natural and human factors which control the quantity and quality of water resources. This mission is carried on from the former Division of Hydrology (1962-2001) which conducted and coordinated some of the earliest Canadian hydrology research. The Centre contributes to the Global Institute for Water Security and the Global Water Futures programme.
