Hydrological Forecasting

  • E. M. Wilson


In the previous chapters the various physical processes involved in the hydrologic cycle have been enumerated and examined in detail. Methods of evaluating each process have been suggested and often explained, and techniques discussed which may be used to provide quantitative answers to many questions.
