Malpractice in hydrology
Corruption of hydrologists
Underreporting of disruptions in natural water cycles
Misconduct of consultant hydrogeologists
Hydrologists, under pressure from their employers or clients, have adopted practices which lead to the underreporting of disruptions in natural water cycles to avoid public protest, especially in the case of major dam and irrigation systems, given the implications of silting and sedimentation for traditional patterns of agriculture.
