Spatial Patterns in Catchment Hydrology brings together a number of recent field exercises in research catchments, that illustrate how the understanding and modelling capability of spatial processes can be improved by the use of observed patterns of hydrological response. The introductory chapters review the nature of hydrological variability, and introduce basic concepts related to measuring and modelling spatial hydrologic processes, providing the conceptual and theoretical background needed to move into this exciting area of research. The book demonstrates that there is rich information in patterns that provide much more stringent tests of the models and much greater insight into hydrological behaviour than traditional methods. Written in an intuitive and coherent manner, the book is ideal for researchers, graduate students and advanced undergraduates in hydrology, and a range of water related disciplines such as physical geography, earth sciences, environmental and civil engineering.

'This is a landmark volume … the production by Cambridge University Press is excellent.' Paul Bates, Earth Surface Processes and Landforms
'These examples are generously illustrated by over 40 colour plates which are necessary for a visual display of the spatial variability of catchment parameters and their complexity. Although specialized and with more than 540 references, this book is most readable and will prove useful to those seeking a general understanding of hydrological processes. This valuable book comes at a time when there is a concerted effort to address the need for adequate scaling methodologies in distributed models and the development of new techniques to model catchment behaviour in ungauged catchments where there is currently no hydrological information.'

'… this book … is not readable and will prove useful to those seeking a general understanding of hydrological processes …'. Hydrological Processes
This book describes the use of observed patterns in understanding and modelling hydrological response. Containing background information for those new to the subject and detailed case studies, it is ideal for researchers, graduate students and advanced undergraduates in hydrology, physical geography, earth sciences, environmental and civil engineering.
