Engineering Hydrology: Processes and Modeling (Hardcover)
Ships in 2-10 Days
The scientific study of movement, distribution and quality of water on Earth and other planets is known as hydrology. It includes the study of the water cycle and water resources as well as environmental watershed sustainability. Hydrology draws on various fields such as environmental science, physical geography, environmental engineering and geology. Various scientific techniques and analytical methods are used in engineering hydrology. It works to solve water-related problems such as natural disasters, water management and environmental preservation. Remote sensing of hydrological processes is used to measure various constituents of terrestrial water balance, such as soil moisture, precipitation, surface water storage, evapotranspiration and snow and ice. The sources of remote sensing are land-based, remote-based and satellite sensors that are capable of capturing microwave, thermal and near-infrared data. The hydrological models are conceptual representations of a part of the hydrological cycle. It is classified into two types such as models based on data and models based on process descriptions. This book contains some path-breaking studies in the field of engineering hydrology. The various studies that are constantly contributing towards advancing technologies and evolution of this field are examined in detail. For someone with an interest and eye for detail, this book covers the most significant topics in the field of engineering hydrology.
