9780071743914: Applied Hydrology, 2nd Edition

The first revision in more than 20 years of the renowned engineering hydrology text

Applied Hydrology, Second Edition retains the successful outline of this classic text while adding new material on physical hydrologic modeling to cover advances in that field of hydrology. New coverage includes the advances in solving hydrology problems through the use of new methodologies such as GIS technology. The book is divided into three parts: Hydrologic Processes; Hydrologic Analysis; and Hydrologic Design, where most of the revisions occur.
