14: Q: What kind of education does a hydrologist need? | More Q&A | Q: What is a flash flood? | A: A flood that happens within 6 hours of heavy rain catching people off guard not giving time to prepare. | A: Required~ A master degree in hydrology & doctorate degrees in research & teaching positions. | A: Entry level positions~ batcholor degree in hydrolic science. | A: Perspective~ Courses in mathmatics, hydrogeology, chemestry, geophysics, soil science, engineering science, goelogy, conservation, aquatic biology & atmospheric science.Can gain voulintary certification in pro. hydrology. | 7

15: More Q&A | Q: What causes a flood? | Q: What are the stages of a flood? | A: Near flood stage, minor moderate & major flooding. | A: when there is a larger then normal or cont. rainfall for a short period of time or where a waterway is clogged to cause overflowing. | Q: What is a Hurst Exponent? | A: An estimate number of predictibality in a time series. | 8
