Handbook of Hydrology

This book is a compendium of articles on theory and practice in the field of hydrology collected from experts around the world. This handbook was written to help professionals in the water resources fields solve on-the-job problems. For example, it will help assess water usage for a city and design appropriate methods for urban drainage. Other chapters will help calculate the rate of rainfall, evaporation, groundwater flow, snow melt, and estimate the rates and extent of flooding so that their effects can be mitigated. Finally, it will help with water assessments due to pollution, groundwater runoff, land-use changes such as deforestation. The book also provides an extensive glossary, formulas used in calculations, and values of hydrologic constants. This handbook will become a ready reference for water resource managers and scientists working in related fields.
