Reviews

From the Foreword Second Edition:

"All of the above make this a unique, invaluable book for the student, professor, or hydrologist seeking to acquire a thorough understanding of this area of hydrology" Philip B. Bedient, Rice University, Texas, USA

From the reviews:

"Although this book is generally concerned with surface runoff and flood periods, the conceptions and methods, as well as the method of utilizing GIS for distributed models, are remakably useful. Careful study of this excellent book will help achieve understanding of GIS-based distributed modelling, and it is highly recommended to students, teachers, researchers, and engineers involved in hydrology, water resources, and environmental Sciences." (Bulletin of the American Meteological Society, May 2002)
