About the Authors
  • Whether processes in the natural world are dependent or independent of the scale at which they operate is one of the major issues in hydrologic science. In this volume, leading hydrologists present their views on the role of scale effects in hydrologic phenomena occurring in a range of field settings, from the land surface to deep fractured rock. Self-contained and thought-provoking chapters cover both theoretical and applied hydrology. They provide critical insights into important topics such as general circulation models, floods, river networks, vadose zone processes, groundwater transport, and fluid flow through fractured media. This book is intended as an accessible introduction for graduate students and researchers to some of the most significant questions and challenges that will face hydrologic science in the twenty-first century.

    • Covers a broad range of hydrological processes
    • Contributors are top workers in the field
    • Provides an accessible overview to the key research areas in this emerging subject
    • International authorship

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The editor is commended for assembling 26 prestigious authors who, in 14 chapters, present, their views on scaling hydrological processes such as water flows and related transports, in diverse systems such as entire landscapes, river networks, hillslopes, soils, fractured rocks, and aquifers...engaging and stimulating." Soil Science

    "This book addresses an important issue in modern hydrology: scale dependency or independency in hydrologic processes using mathematical models....The editor, Garrison Sposito, must be congratulated for this book." Journal of Geoscience Education
