Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The technological advances of recent years include the emergence of new remote sensing and geographic information systems that are invaluable for the study of wetlands, agricultural land, and land use change. Students, hydrologists, and environmental engineers are searching for a comprehensive hydrogeologic overview that supplements information on hydrologic processes with data on these new information technology tools.

Environmental Hydrology, Second Edition builds upon the foundation of the bestselling first edition by providing a qualitative understanding of hydrologic processes while introducing new methods for quantifying hydrologic parameters and processes. Written by authors with extensive multidisciplinary experience, the text first discusses the components of the hydrologic cycle, then follows with chapters on precipitation, stream processes, human impacts, new information system applications, and numerous other methods and strategies.

By updating this thorough text with the newest analytical tools and measurement methodologies in the field, the authors provide an ideal reference for students and professionals in environmental science, hydrology, soil science, geology, ecological engineering, and countless other environmental fields.

Book News Annotation:

Focusing on the practical and incorporating fieldwork throughout, this introductory textbook is appropriate for students of environmental science, natural resources, geology, geography, and agricultural and environmental engineering. Ward (department of food, agricultural, and biological engineering, Ohio State University) and Trimble (geography, U. of California, Los Angeles) incorporate their multidisciplinary experiences—and their opinions—into discussion of the hydrologic cycle, infiltration and soil water processes, evapotranspiration, runoff and subsurface drainage, stream processes, soil conservation, remote sensing and geographic information systems, and river geomoropholoy, among other topics.

Synopsis:

Building on the foundation set by the bestselling first edition, this second edition provides students and professionals with a qualitative understanding of hydrologic processes. It introduces the methods for quantifying hydrologic parameters and processes that are essential for addressing worldwide concerns such as water contamination. Completely revised and updated, the authors have paid special attention to the chapter on remote sensing and geographic information systems to reflect the rapid technology advances in these areas. They include increased coverage of biological and ecological factors and use dual units (SI and English) to facilitate international use.
