About this book

Covers issues on water, forests, the water-forest relation, watershed research, and hydrologic measurements, and provides state-of-the-art knowledge on the impact of forests to the hydrologic environment. It emphasizes concepts and general principles within these two natural resources, and details the processes of hydrologic components in forested areas.

The second edition features a new chapter on forests and flooding, a new section on GIS methods in hydrology research, and a new appendix on forest interception measurements.

Although a few texts on forest hydrology are available, they cover very little if any background on water resources. On the other hand, books dealing with water resources do not cover topics on forest-water relations. The one exception to this is Forest Hydrology: An Introduction to Water and Forests. Now with the publication of a second edition, this volume adds information from recent studies to go even further in providing an introduction to forest hydrology that brings water resources and forest-water relations into a single practical and comprehensive volume
