  • Covers the environmental aspects of hydrology such as environmental river flow, hydro-fracturing, sustainability in wastewater treatment, water pollution control using low cost natural waste, environmental impacts of nanotechnology, ecological risk on reservoirs, and modeling of wetland systems
  • Presents the impacts of climate change and climate variability on hydrology, and associated uncertainty, vulnerability and adaption particularly in urban area, hydrologic flood and drought regionalization, modifications in land use and hydrological cycle, bankfull frequency
  • Includes data mining, optimum hydrometric site selection, data quality control and homogenization, satellite-based systems
  • Examines new techniques in statistical hydrology, such as L-moments, copula, and geostatistics, as well as modern flood prediction and warning systems, uncertainty in hydrologic prediction, significance of statistical tests and persistence, parameters for assessing hydrological regime, uncertainty and risk of PMF
  • Reveals different aspects of hydrology that include urban, cold region, karst, low flow hydrology, as well as ecohydrology, hard rock and isotope hydrogeology
  • Provides interactions between groundwater and surface water, hydrology and ecology
  • Covers new management topics including water scarcity, security and governance, transboundary river and water resource management, sustainability in urban water, wastewater reuse, stormwater modeling, water resource management, groundwater vulnerability, anthropocenic aquifer, porous media and groundwater saturation modeling, and artificial recharge
  • Contains contributions from leading university experts


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.
