Environmental Hydrology is an excellent textbook for use in introductory/intermediate hydrology courses. 60 tables, 169 illustrations, 71 worked examples, 120 homework problems, laboratory exercises or projects are included in this ideal textbook for students of environmental science, hydrology, meteorology, agronomy, soil science, forestry, geography, natural resources, and agricultural and civil engineering. It provides a qualitative understanding of hydrologic processes and an introduction to methods for quantifying hydrologic parameters and processes. English units are primarily used but conversion tables and many problems with SI units are also presented.
Written by an interdisciplinary group of scientists and engineers, the book begins with introductory chapters on the components of the hydrologic cycle. Subsequent chapters cover soil water hydrology, evapotranspiration, ground-water flow, surface runoff, soil erosion, flow in channels, forest and wetland hydrology, water quality, remote sensing applications in hydrology, and modeling hydrologic systems. It also includes a chapter of projects and laboratory exercises, a glossary of terms, hydrologic data, and references.

Review:

This is not your ordinary textbook...It is eclectic, practical, in places a handbook, a guide to fieldwork...and, perhaps most engaging to me, in places the authors offer personal views as well as more strongly worded opinions. The former often relate to evaluation of alternative approaches, or formulations, of specific solutions to specific hydrologic problems...I hope any student will enjoy, not just profit from, the careful advice given to those involved in their first observations of rivers in the field...
-Professor M. Gordon (Reds) Wolman, Johns Hopkins University.
