Media reviews

From the reviews: "Given the broad coverage of the hydrology and water resources of Africa, including its islands, this volume deserves much applause as a source of data. Summarizing the main points raised in each section, there is a valuable collection of the hydro-meteorological data in a series of tables and figures. Besides this, the enormous body of references, some of which are quite rare, is suggestive of an extensive background study. [...]This volume would appeal to researchers and professionals working in the fields of water and agricultural engineering, geosciences, African studies, and those interested in surface and groundwater resources in Africa. For quite a number of eningeering-based readers, who deal with the interface of hydrology and water resource, this book would prove very useful." (Jayanta Bandyopadhyay and Shama Perveen, IWRA, Water International, 30:1, March 2005) "Overall this book represents a significant compilation of literature, data and analysis brought together in one volume and as such provides a very substantial and useful source of information. It should be an essential book for library reference collections and a useful first port of call for researchers to look up information on the physical characteristics, climate and hydrology of Africa or to obtain useful data sets pertaining to these topics. The CD-ROM is certainly a useful source of data on rainfall, runoff and water quality." (Declan Conway, Hydrological Sciences - Journal dex Sciences Hydrologiques, 48:5, October 2003) "This study is the culmination of the author's long career working in hydrology in Africa ! . Overall this book represents a significant compilation of literature, data and analysis ! and as such provides a very substantial and useful source of information. It should be an essential book for library reference collections and a useful first port of call for researchers to look up information on the physical characteristics, climate and hydrology of Africa ! . The CD-ROM is certainly a useful source ! ." (Declan Conway, Hydrological Sciences Journal, October, Vol. 48 (5), October, 2003)
