Fundamentals of Hydrology is a lively and accessible introduction to the study of hydrology at university level. Structured into three defined sections, it provides undergraduates with an understanding of hydrological processes, a knowledge of the techniques used to assess water resources and an-up-to date overview of water resource management. Throughout the text examples and case studies from around the world are used to clearly explain ideas and techniques. Chapter summaries, essay questions, guides to further reading and a glossary are also included.
'It is immensely difficult to produce a book entitled Fundamentals of Hydrology in a palatable style, with unbroken prose, few equations and accessible diagrams that will appeal to undergraduates new to the subject. Tim Davie's book manages to do this admirably. This book is to be highly recommended to any undergraduate interested in water management in a changing world.' - Geographical Association
