About the book
This volume addresses the recent advances made in better understanding of the fundamentals in Hydrologic systems and in using the computational and visualization resources for predicting and analyzing the hydrologic variables.
Topics covered include but are not limited to: Hydrologic Cycle (Precipitation, Runoff, Infiltration and their Measurement, Land surface interaction); Hydrologic Analysis (Hydrograph, Wave routing, Hydrologic statistics, Frequency Analysis); Applied Hydrology (Applications in Engineering, Sciences and Agriculture, Design storms, Risk analysis, Case studies); Computational Hydrology (Numerical modeling, Hydrologic modeling and forecasting, Flow visualization, Model validation, Parameter estimation); Interdisciplinary Hydrology (Hydrometeorology, Impact of Climate Change, Precipitation data analysis, Mathematical concepts, Natural hazards); Radar Hydrology (Precipitation estimation techniques, Promise and Challenges in Radar technology, Uncertainty in radar precipitation estimates).
The contents covered in this book will serve as a valuable reference guide to students, researchers, government agencies and practicing engineers who work in hydrology and related areas. We hope that this book will open new directions in basic and applied research in hydrological science.
