About this book

This book provides a comprehensive overview of time series characteristics in hydrology, describes methodology for applying 31 available statistical tests for determining the time series characteristics, explores the building of stochastic models (AR, MA, ARMA) for time series, demonstrates the application of most of the time series tests through a case study in India (authors' own work) as well as evaluates comparative performance of the time series tests (authors' own work), together with some invited case studies from other researchers. Finally, it discusses future research and development needs in the area of time series analysis for water resources development and management.

This book will be useful to the undergraduate and postgraduate students, and researchers of civil, environmental, agricultural, and ecological engineering fields as well as to the practicing hydrologists and hydrogeologists, particularly those in developing nations.
