Advances in the 18th century included the Bernoulli piezometer and Bernoulli's equation, by Daniel Bernoulli, the Pitot tube. The 19th century saw development in groundwater hydrology, including Darcy's law, the Dupuit-Thiem formula well, and Hagen-Poiseuille's capillary flow equation.
Rational analyzes began to replace empiricism in the 20th century, while governmental agencies began Hydrological Their own research programs. Of particular importance were the resource persons Leroy Sherman's unit hydrograph, the infiltration theory of Robert E. Horton, and C.V. Theis's Aquifer test / equation describing well Hydraulics.
Since the 1950's, hydrology has been approached with a more theoretical basis than in the past, facilitated by Advances in the physical understanding of Hydrological processes and by the advent of computers and ESPECIALLY Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
