Addressing real world challenges
Journal of Ecohydraulics
Welcome to Journal of Ecohydraulics
Ecohydraulics is the study of ecology and hydraulics in synthesis. This definition can be broadened more generally to include other disciplines that are related to:
- aquatic biology (e.g. physiology, population dynamics, and evolution),
- engineering (e.g. fluid mechanics and hydrodynamics),
- other physical sciences (e.g. geomorphology and hydrology).
Journal of Ecohydraulics is part of a suite of publications from the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR). Click on the following options to read our Aims & Scope, Instructions for Authors or to submit your manuscript now.
How does Journal of Ecohydraulics contribute to the community?
With the launch of the Journal of Ecohydraulics, the community now has a home journal for transdisciplinary research at the interface of aquatic ecology and hydraulics. This includes works that integrate the disciplines of ecology and biology with engineering hydraulics and fluid mechanics, fluvial geomorphology and hydrology, water resource management, and environmental and social sciences.
The journal provides an outlet to describe the development and utilization of a variety of methods and approaches ranging from empirical laboratory experiments and field studies to numerical modelling.
Published articles address fundamental questions and have application to real-world challenges.
Water - Connecting the World
To celebrate the 38th IAHR World Congress theme of Water - Connecting the World, we've collated articles which showcase the discipline of hydro-environment engineering and research relating to these themes, free to access below.
