Word of the Day: hydrologic


The word hydrologic has appeared in seven articles on NYTimes.com in the past year, including on Oct. 27 in “Old Faithful Is Boiling, Smelly and the Perfect Home for These Living Things” by Sarah Derouin:

It turns out that other popular features at Yellowstone — hydrothermal springs, pools and geysers that steam and bubble — are also a unique habitat for living things. Instead of charismatic mammals and birds, they are home to chaos-loving microbes.

Scientists have long studied the hydrologic features of Yellowstone’s springs and pools, “but nobody has ever studied the microbiology of a geyser,” said Eric Boyd, a professor of microbiology at Montana State University.
