ICE Scottish Hydrological Group © 2015

A specialist study group of the Institution of Civil Engineers (Registered Charity No 210252)

ICE Scottish Hydrological Society



Scottish Hydrological Group is the principal forum for hydrologists living and working in Scotland. We organise technical meetings and other events for the Scottish hydrology community, and aim to encourage communication among our membership.


The Group is constituted as a study group supported the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE).


It was founded in 1965 and, since then, has typically organised four meetings per year to address issues of contemporary hydrological interest. Each annual programme usually includes a half-day event in addition to the usual evening meetings, and meetings are often organised jointly with other groups. Close links are maintained with the British Hydrological Society, with the group effectively operating as a Scottish section of BHS - reports of meetings are published in the BHS newsletter Circulation. Meetings are most often held in Glasgow or in Edinburgh, but most annual programmes in recent years have also included at least one meeting outside the central belt.


The group enjoys the benefits of a multidisciplinary membership. Members are drawn principally from: consulting engineers, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, conservation bodies, research organisations, Scottish Water and Universities.
