Hydrology in Practice Book By Elizabeth M. Shaw


Hydrology in Practice is addressed primarily to civil engineering undergraduates. It

aims to give an essentially practical approach to the various facets of the subject and

emphasizes the application of hydrological knowledge to solving engineering problems.

However, the style of the book should also be attractive to undergraduates in other

disciplines hoping to make a career in the water industry. Additionally, it could be a

useful reference book to the junior engineer in the design office of a consulting engineer

or water authority concerned with water engineering problems. Civil engineers in the

developing countries could also benefit from this introduction to a specialist subject.

Although presented from a British viewpoint, the subject is set in a global context;

hydrological conditions in the different climatic regions are described; incidences of

hydrological extremes are necessarily taken from worldwide situations; and examples of

major engineering applications from many countries are noted appropriately in the text.
