ABOUT THE BOOK

FUNDAMENTALS OF HYDROLOGY 

AUTHOR : TIM DAVIE

PUBLISHERS : ROUTLEDGE TAYLOR AND FRANCIS GROUP


It is the presence or absence of water that by and large determines how and where humans are able to live. This in itself makes water an important compound, but when you add in that the availability of water varies enormously in time and space, and that water is an odd substance in terms of its physical and chemical properties, it is possible to see that water is a truly extraordinary substance worthy of study at great length. To study hydrology is to try and understand the distribution and movement of fresh water around the globe. It is of fundamental importance to a rapidly growing world population that we understand the controls on availability of fresh water. To achieve this we need to know the fundamentals of hydrology as a science. From this position it is possible to move forward towards the management of water resources to benefit people in the many areas of the world where water availability is stressed.
There have been, and are, many excellent textbooks on hydrology. This book does not set out to eclipse all others, rather it is an attempt to fit into a niche that the author has found hard to fill in his teaching of hydrology in an undergraduate Physical Geography and Environmental Science setting. It aims to provide a solid foundation in the fundamental concepts that need to be understood by anybody taking the study of hydrology further. These fundamental concepts are: an understanding of process; an understanding of measurement and estimation techniques; how to interpret and analyse hydrological data; and some of the major issues of change confronting  Hydrology. One particular aspect that the author has found difficult to find within a single text has been the integration of water quantity and quality assessment; this is attempted here. The book is aimed at first- and second-year undergraduate students. - Preface by the author
