The Institute of Hydrological and Oceanic Sciences has seven full-time and eight adjunct faculty members. The IHOS offers M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in three major areas: hydrologic cycles in the land-ocean-atmosphere system, hydro-environmental sciences, and hydro informatics. Pursuing research excellence in hydrologic and oceanic sciences, the institute emphasizes interdisciplinary research topics in the areas of flood/drought prediction and water resources management, interactions of hydrologic cycles and biota, hydro-environment monitoring and modeling, tsunami simulation, coastal observation, remote sensing applications in aquatic environment, and multiphase flow in porous media.
Instruct in the theorem of hydrological circulation factors of Earth, including Atmospheric, Oceanic and land surface water from Earth system point of view, and also be provided with wilder field and knowledge.
Teach students the skills to observe, analyze and model on the Earth circulation, and then to contribute the science knowledge on management of water resource, water and ocean environmental protection, prevention and cure of hydrological and tsunami disaster and coastal precaution.
Train talented person which are concerned about hydrological and oceanic environment to solve the derived problems from global and hydrological change.
