Summary and Info
The material of this book will derive its scientific under-pinning from basics of mathematics, physics, chemistry, geology, meteorology, engineering, soil science, and related disciplines and will provide sufficient breadth and depth of understanding in each sub-section of hydrology. It will start with basic concepts: Water, its properties, its movement, modelling and quality The distribution of water in space and time Water resource sustainability Chapters on ‘global change’ and ‘water and ethics’ aim respectively to emphasize the central role of hydrological cycle and its quantitative understanding and monitoring for human well being and to familiarize the readers with complex issues of equity and justice in large scale water resource development process. Modern Hydrology for Sustainable Development is intended not only as a textbook for students in earth and environmental science and civil engineering degree courses, but also as a reference for professionals in fields as diverse as environmental planning, civil engineering, municipal and industrial water supply, irrigation and catchment management.Content: Chapter 1 Fundamentals of Hydrology (pages 1–19): Chapter 2 Surface water hydrology (pages 20–69): Chapter 3 Groundwater Hydrology (pages 70–94): Chapter 4 Well Hydraulics and Test Pumping (pages 95–113): Chapter 5 Surface and Groundwater Flow Modelling (pages 114–134): Chapter 6 Aqueous Chemistry and Human Impacts on Water Quality (pages 135–180): Chapter 7 Hydrologic Tracing (pages 181–216): Chapter 8 Statistical Analyses in Hydrology (pages 217–267): Chapter 9 Remote Sensing and GIS in Hydrology (pages 268–296): Chapter 10 Urban Hydrology (pages 297–321): Chapter 11 Rainwater Harvesting and Artificial Groundwater Recharge (pages 322–337): Chapter 12 Water Resource Development: The Human Dimensions (pages 338–348): Chapter 13 Some Case Studies (pages 349–388): Chapter 14 Epilogue (pages 389–402):
