About this book

Based on almost four decades of teaching experience as a university professor, the author prepared the scope and contents of this soil hydrology book for readers with limited mathematical and physical backgrounds. An Introduction into Applied Soil Hydrology, however, will also appeal to those who prefer a concise overview.

An Introduction into Applied Soil Hydrology, written primarily from an engineering approach, is intended for students, as well as researchers and scientists from neighbouring disciplines. Engineers and environmentalists can better understand how processes in porous media may affect land use and related impacts on the environment. An Introduction into Applied Soil Hydrology will help readers to apply principles of soil hydrology to meet the growing challenge of environmental problems as well as to solve questions in sustainable agriculture.
