9780700224036: Introduction to Hydrology (The Intext series in civil engineering)

Water management is taking on new directions. Formerly, water resources development and management was focused almost exclusively on water supply and flood control. Today, the issues of protecting the environment, ensuring safe drinking water, and providing recreational experiences compete for the public's attention and funds. A knowledge of hydrologic principles is a prerequisite for dealing with such issues and the fourth edition of Introduction to Hydrology has been designed to meet the contemporary needs of water scientists and engineers.Known for its clearly organized format, this text is accessible to both students and practitioners concerned with the development, management, and protection of water resources. Featuring solved examples, chapters relating science to public policy, and reviews of current models, this book is not only a comprehensive look at the field of hydrology, but an exploration of current issues affecting the discipline today.Introduction to Hydrology has been updated throughout with new computer approaches and coverage of the use of spreadsheets woven into problem-solving techniques when appropriate. Two new features have been added to each chapter to enhance student comprehension: an introductory statement of contents and a conclusion summing up key points. This textbook is an excellent choice for both an introductory course on hydrology and an advanced course featuring hydrologic modeling.
