Hydrology & Mngmt Watersheds-03-3by Kenneth N Brooks
Synopses & Reviews
Hydrology and the Management of Watersheds, Third Edition is an excellent basic textbook on hydrology and watershed management for students of natural resources. Improvements throughout this edition reflect the needs of students and instructors.
As in previous editions, reference listings allow for further exploration of a particular topic, and examples illustrate the subject material.
Beyond the university classroom, Hydrology and the Management of Watersheds provides a valuable overview of hydrology and watershed management for administrators, planners, managers, and technicians dealing with the management and utilization of natural resources. The textbook may also serve in the development of short courses and continuing education programs for national and international agencies.
Book News Annotation:
Providing an overview of hydrology, this textbook describes the hydrologic processes and their relationships to land use, erosion and sediment yield, water quality, wetland management, and socioeconomic concerns. The text is heavily illustrated with graphs, charts, and diagrams. The authors teach forest hydrology, watershed management, and agriculture at the University of Minnesota, St. Paul and the University of Arizona, Tucson.
