ABOUT THE BOOK

HYDROLOGY FOR WATER MANAGEMENT

AUTHOR : STEPHEN A THOMPSON (Department of Geography, Millersville University, Pennsylvania, USA)

PUBLISHERS : A.A. Balkema Publishers

 The book covers the basic components and processes of the hydrologic system, and some of the more common methods used to study them. The intended audience is students interested in natural resources and the environment. Environmental geography students in particular comprise a significant percentage of the urban and land use planners working for government agencies. In these positions they encounter water and land resource management problems. This book provides a foundation for understanding the hydrologic components of these problems. If this book happens to inspire a deeper more abiding interest in the subject that would be nice too. 

Hydrology is a quantitative interdisciplinary science and my book is mathematically rigorous, but I have tried to provide a balance between quantitative material and descriptive text. The types of mathematics used are primarily algebra and some statistics. Equations of calculus are used occasionally because calculus describes the true process; however, students are not required to ‘do’ any calculus. In practice, hydrologic processes are routinely approximated using algebra rather than calculus. This is why author introduced certain topics with calculus, but then explain how the problems are actually solved using algebra, said by the author.
