9780801858574: Elements of Physical Hydrology

The science of physical hydrology centers on the physical principles involved in the study of the occurrence and movement of water on and beneath the earth's surface. Because of its far-reaching implications for other disciplines, physical hydrology is of interest to students in fields ranging from the environmental sciences to engineering, policy studies, and even law. In this introductory-level text the authors begin from the premise that the complexities of modern hydrology can be mastered by understanding basic physical principles of fluid movement. Focusing first on analysis at the scale of a single watershed, they then introduce the mechanics of fluids in closed conduits and open channels. They reevaluate catchment processes in light of fluid mechanics, open channel hydraulics, and groundwater flow. In a concluding chapter, they stress the importance of understanding water movement in the environment by exploring the relationship of hydrology to such disciplines as atmospheric science, ecology, and geology. Accompanying the book is a CD-ROM, which provides a Web version of the text (Netscape Navigator 2.0 or later required). Included are video demonstrations, additional content and interactive review questions, and extensive links to facilitate study and review. Instructions for using the Web version are included. Also on the CD-ROM are simulation tools to study hydrological processes (MATLAB student version 5.0 required).

Recensione:

An outstanding text that can greatly facilitate improved education in hydrology. Hopefully, this book will be universally adopted for use in undergraduate hydrology courses that have an integrated environmental focus. I fully expect that the book will also find its way to the bookshelves of many professionals and graduate students. Personally, starting next year, I plan to use this book as one of the assigned texts for the three-quarter-long Environmental Earth Science series at Stanford.

Its general introduction to physical hydrology and in particular catchment hydrology via the hillslope-steam continuum is impressive.

(Ian Cluckie Times Higher Education Supplement)

A publishing model for the future of hydrologic education.

A much needed practical and well balanced approach to physical hydrology... Not only will the text serve well in a one-semester physical-hydrology course, but it also should be useful to professionals in almost all fields of environmental science and natural-resource management.

(Philip J. Gerla Journal of Geoscience Education)

Most aquatic ecologists believe that a solid knowledge of hydrology is, now, a critical tool in the lotic scientist's background... For readers looking for a good basic text in hydrology, this is the one to purchase.

(James A. Gore Journal of the North American Benthological Society)
