Contents Notes
Fundamentals of hydrology -- Surface water hydrology -- Groundwater hydrology -- Well hydraulics and test pumping -- Surface and groundwater flow modelling -- Aqueous chemistry and human impacts on water quality -- Hydrologic tracing -- Statistical analyses in hydrology -- Remote sensing and GIS in hydrology -- Urban hydrology -- Rainwater harvesting and artificial goundwater recharge -- Water resource development: the human dimensions -- Some case studies -- Epilogue. This book presents a unified treatment of the science and practice of modern hydrology, derived from the basics of mathematics, physics, chemistry, geology, meteorology, engineering, soil science, and related disciplines. The aim of the book si to provide both breadth and depth of understanding in each of the major sub-sections of modern hydrology, under three broad themes: water, its properties, its movement, modelling and quality; the distribution of water in space and time; and water resource sustainability--Cover.
