Hydrology and Hydraulic Systems
by Ram S. Gupta
This second edition offers a complete treatment of the quantitative elements involved in the development of water resources. The thorough text includes fundamental, up-to-date coverage of hydrology theory, applications, and designs. Some of the features of the second edition are theory and applications of groundwater flow for steady- and unsteady-state conditions, applications of EPA-recommended statistical procedures to groundwater monitoring, presentations of field practices of hydrologic investigations, analysis and design of basic hydraulic structures, 280 illustrations and 175 tables, and more than 500 end-of-chapter problems to solve. The broad coverage of the text makes it ideal for courses on hydrology, hydrologic systems, and water resources management.
