Book Description

While most books examine only the classical aspects of hydrology, this three-volume set covers multiple aspects of hydrology, and includes contributions from experts from more than 30 countries. It examines new approaches, addresses growing concerns about hydrological and ecological connectivity, and considers the worldwide impact of climate change.

It also provides updated material on hydrological science and engineering, discussing recent developments as well as classic approaches. Published in three books, Fundamentals and Applications; Modeling, Climate Change, and Variability; and Environmental Hydrology and Water Management, the entire set consists of 87 chapters, and contains 29 chapters in each book.

Students, practitioners, policy makers, consultants and researchers can benefit from the use of this text.

"The impact of climate change on water resources has been the subject of many studies, but Shrestha et al. view the subject from a broad perspective by approaching the topic of climate change as it impacts large-scale water resources management and planning. … Most of the chapters consider a range of case studies… they provide both a thorough theoretical viewpoint and case study examinations of the topic."
—Journal of the American Water Resources Association, December 2015

"… a balanced overlook of the basic and complex hydrologic processes. The handbook applies definitions and concepts of management, modeling, sustainability, quality and analysis of water resources and their interaction with the environment, ecology and the variability of climate change all over the planet… It is worthwhile to highlight the different techniques used by the experts of more than thirty countries, including the statistical evaluations, GIS coupled with remote sensing applications; for the definition, explanation, prevention, prediction and solution of hydrologic and climatic processes."
—Arid Land Research and Management, 2016

"The work has a variety of strengths including well known and respected authors… The selection of topics is both complete and timely. In my opinion, everyone in the field of hydrology will need easy access to this book since it is the only book that I am aware that provides a holistic view of a critical subject."
––Richard H. French, Research Prof. Emeritus, Division of Hydrologic Sciences, Desert Research Institute, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

"This handbook is well updated and it covers various aspects of environmental issues, climate change, water resources development and water resources management. Moreover, this handbook contains new techniques used in statistical hydrology, such as Multi-variate L-moments, copula, and geostatistics, as well as new information-based techniques such as the application of IT in hydrology."
––Stanislaw Halas, Maria Curie-Sklodowska University, Lublin, Poland

"…written in a professional manner. The list of references is sufficiently comprehensive… From the contents of particular volumes it seems that the book shall cover all main problems of modern hydrology."
––Jan Dowgiałło, Inst. Geol. Sci Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, Poland

"The book is written by more than 200 authors from all over the world, who are well-known experts in their fields of study. To my mind, this is the advantage of the book; it is based on the case studies of different geographical locations, climate, geology and hydrology. It allows the reader to find the proper information concerning specific natural conditions and also to widen the knowledge about hydrology of foreign countries."
––Dr. Natalia A. Vinograd, St.Petersburg State University, Russia

"With the utilization of modern technology and research studies, this handbook is definitely a gem for those interested in advanced engineering hydrology. …Each volume covers renowned research studies and topics from many different fields, thus providing a complete guidance to hydrological science and engineering."
––Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nittaya Wangwongwiroj, King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi, Thailand

"I think this handbook can be considered as a serious work… This volume can be useful as a handbook of isotopes application in hydrology for people who are starting [their] investigation in hydrology.
––Dr. Dinara Abbasova
