Hydrology Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Handbook of Hydrology
by David R. Maidment

Handbook of Hydrology is the first book in nearly 30 years to provide comprehensive coverage of the current state of hydrologic knowledge and practice--saving you hours of time tracking down the latest techniques in professional journals.

Handbook of Hydrology features:

  • Estimate the magnitudes of floods and mitigate their effects
  • Develop solutions for cleaning up and preventing pollution of surface water and groundwater
  • Assess water usage for a city or an irrigation project
  • Choose reliable methods for urban drainage design
  • Calculate the rate of rainfall, evaporation, infiltration, groundwater flow, snow-melt, and streamflow
  • Determine the rate of movement of contaminants in surface water and groundwater
  • Assess the hydrologic effects of land-use changes such as deforestation
  • Statistically analyze hydrologic data, including extreme events, time series, and spatial data
  • Select the best computer package for hydrologic simulation
  • Use remote sensing, automated data collection, forecasting, and advanced computer methods in hydrology
