Excerpt from The Elements of Hydrology

The science of hydrology, although it has received relatively little attention in the United States until recent years, has a wide field of application. It is fundamental to the solution of many problems in water-power, water-supply, sewerage and sewage disposal, drainage, irrigation, navigation, and flood protection and prevention. Although basic to a large field of engineering science, hydrology itself is founded upon numerous other sciences, as well as upon a large body of physical data peculiar to itself.

Although the material presented in the following pages represents considerable effort, it is far from complete, and only the urgent need for a book which should set forth at least the most important physical bases and applications of the fundamental principles underlying the science of hydrology, induced the author to prepare the material for publication at this time.

The book is intended to be of assistance to professional men, teachers, and students of engineering. It has been prepared with the view of clearly setting forth fundamental data and considerations rather than of providing either a text or a reference book, and, of course, not a handbook. It will be years before the fundamental principles and facts underlying the science of hydrology have received sufficiently general acceptance to permit their condensation into handbook form.

The data and computations presented in this book were prepared with the assistance of a paid office staff and are believed to be free from material discrepancies.
