INTRODUCTION TO HYDROLOGY VIESSMAN PDF

About this title This book systematically covers underlying principles of hydrology in chapters 1 - 10 and then delves deeper into the application of these principles to practical problems in the field throughout the remainder of the prose. Covers all aspects of the hydrologic cycle, and the manner in which they may be modified to deal with floods, droughts, potable water supply and urban drainage. For anyone who expect to become involved in programs that are concerned with the development, management and protection of water resources. From the Back Cover: For the fifth edition, Introduction to Hydrology has been significantly revamped and restructured, offering the reader content that is focused and streamlined. Many graduate level subjects and topics that were considered to be more of a handbook variety have been eliminated, in keeping with the original philosophy of the book, which was to focus on providing a scope of material that would support a theory-to-practice learning experience for beginning students in hydrology.

About This Product Description For students who expect to become involved in programs that are concerned with the development, management and protection of water resources. The Fifth Edition of Introduction to Hydrology has been redesigned to better acquaint future water engineers, scientists and managers with the basic elements of the hydrologic cycle. Its focus is on presenting the principles of hydrology in the context of their application to real-world problems. The book identifies data sources, introduces statistical analyses in the context of hydrologic problem-solving, covers the components of the hydrologic budget, discusses hydrograph analysis and routing, and introduces groundwater hydrology, urban hydrology, hydrologic models and hydrologic design.

Many solved examples and problems serve to amplify the concepts presented in the text. Computer applications are discussed and appropriate Web addresses are provided. Features NEW - Topical organization—Covers underlying principles of hydrology in chapters 1 - 10 while chapters 11 - 13 cover application of these principles to practical problems in the field. Provides logical course development and basis for advanced studies in hydrology.

NEW - Comprehensive coverage. Covers all aspects of the hydrologic cycle, and the manner in which they may be modified to deal with floods, droughts, potable water supply and urban drainage. Chapters 1, , and 10 cover the key components of the hydrologic cycle and chapters 11 - 13 and section Numerous solved examples—Using both English and metric units. Enhances student comprehension and aids in homework and test preparation.

Presentation of hydrologic models and modeling. Provides practice-oriented experiences for students and demonstrates how the basic hydrologic processes can be incorporated into engineering designs and water resources management processes. New To This Edition Topical organization—Covers underlying principles of hydrology in chapters 1 - 10 while chapters 11 - 13 cover application of these principles to practical problems in the field.
