Need for Hydrological Information, Network Design and Appraisal, Rainfall, Evaporation and Transpiration, Soil Moisture Storage, Groundwater Recharge, River Flow, Water Balance, Surface Water Resource Assessment, Flood Estimation, Sedimentation and Environmental Issues, Postscript.
A unique hydrology text. It brings hydrological analysis to life by means of examples in which the author has been involved: numerous practical problems that had to be tackled (often despite limited data, resources and time) are described and the methods that were used to find a solution are explained. The application of a water balance is an essential component of solving these applied problems. Practising hydrologists and engineers, as well as students, will learn from this volume which complements standard hydrology textbooks.
