The Centre for Hydrology occupies many superb facilities for hydrological and research training in Saskatoon and Canmore, with many field sites across Western and Northern Canada as well as administrative offices providing work space for researchers. They include the following:

Main Offices

Offices and laboratories in Kirk Hall, University of Saskatchewan 
The Centre for Hydrology is affiliated with the University of Saskatchewan and has laboratories for cryospheric and environmental simulation, ecohydrology, computer modelling, instrument development, chemistry and sample preparation on the main campus.
Environment Canada National Hydrology Research Centre
11 Innovation Boulevard
Saskatoon, SK
The Centre for Hydrology has offices and laboratories withing the Environment Canada National Hydrology Research Centre, located adjacent to the Canadian Centre for Water Forecasting and Prediction, and partners with many of ECCC scientists.


Coldwater Laboratory 
The Coldwater Laboratory is both an office building where researchers analyse large datasets, run computer models to simulate streamflow generation, snowmelt and glacier retreat and a hub of a large mountain hydrology and climate observation program that is focused on the Bow River Basin.
Smart Water Systems Laboratory
Housed withing the National Hydrology Research Centre, the Smart Water Systems Laboratory has multiple workstations and tremendous facilities for conduction electronics and sensor design research.

Field Sites and Facilities

The Centre for Hydrology manages the majority of its research relating to mountain hydrology at the Coldwater Laboratory in Canmore, Alberta. Additional facilities are available at the University of Calgary’s Barrier Lake Field Station in Kananaskis Country, which also provides accommodation for fieldwork in nearby research basins.
Field studies are conducted in a wide variety of settings and locations, in Canada and around the world. To support these field studies, the Centre for Hydrology owns and operates a comprehensive inventory of instrumentation and equipment, including dataloggers, hygrothermometers, thermocouples (conventional and infrared), anemometers (cup, propellor and sonic), long-wave radiometers, solarimeters, rain and snow gauges, barometric pressure transducers, soil moisture meters, groundwater level recorders, stream gauges, UAVs, LIDAR, heavy-duty 4x4 trucks, ATVs and snowmobiles.

Interdisciplinary Collaboration

Hydrology-related activities also take place in labs and departments elsewhere on campus, providing facilities for research in aquatic ecology (Biology), soil hydrology, groundwater, modelling, and hydraulics (Civil, Geological and Environmental Engineering), GIS, remote sensing, ecohydrology, sociohydrology (Geography and Planning), groundwater, geochemistry, and isotope analysis (Geology), catchment hydrology, soils, sociohydrology and water management, soil hydrology and chemistry (Soil Science), and aquatic contaminant chemistry (Toxicology). There is an excellent computing and information technology infrastructure, including access to the high-performance Compute Canada.
