About this book

Leading hydrologists present their views on the role of scale effects in hydrologic phenomena occurring in a range of field settings.

The editor is commended for assembling 26 prestigious authors who, in 14 chapters, present, their views on scaling hydrological processes such as water flows and related transports, in diverse systems such as entire landscapes, river networks, hillslopes, soils, fractured rocks, and aquifers...engaging and stimulating. Soil Science "This book addresses an important issue in modern hydrology: scale dependency or independency in hydrologic processes using mathematical models...The editor, Garrison Sposito, must be congratulated for this book." Journal of Geoscience Education


Preface; 1. Scale analyses for land surface hydrology; 2. Hillslopes, channels, and landscape scale; 3. Scaling in river networks; 4. Spatial variability and scale invariance in hydrologic regionalization; 5. An emerging technology for scaling field soil water behavior; 6. Scaling invariance and the Richards equation; 7. Scaling of the Richards equation and its application to watershed modeling; 8. Scale issues of heterogeneity in vadose zone hydrology; 9. Stochastic modeling of scale-dependent macrodispersion in the vadose zone; 10. Dilution of nonreactive solutes in heterogeneous porous media; 11. Analysis of scale effects in large-scale transport models; 12. Scale effects in fluid flow through fractured geologic media; 13.
