About this book

Divided into four sections, the handbook covers: The Hydrologic Cycle, Hydrologic Transport, Hydrologic Statistics and Hydrologic Technology.

An expert and highly practical reference on both the theory and practice involved, the Handbook of Hydrology is a much needed compendium of essential information and data filling a void in the literature for practicing hydologists and professionals in related fields.
