Summary

This is the only text to give a complete, non-mathematical exposition of the universal Water Cycle in language accessible to non-specialists. It begins with a discussion of the physical and chemical attributes that make water such a unique substance, and goes on to a step-by-step discussion of various aspects of the Water Cycle.

Features

  • Offers an exceptionally clear and up-to-date, non-mathematical exploration of the universal water cycle.
  • Focuses on hydrology concepts.
  • Provides especially strong coverage of hydrologic measurement.
  • Illustrates explanations of scientific principles with examples of actual occurrences from the real world.
  • Includes numerous photographs and illustrations.
  • States quantities in either American units or SI units (and notes conversions for each in parentheses).
  • NEW - Adds chapter-end questions and hands-on investigations (e.g., for making measurements and/or interpretations of hydrological variables in the local environment).
  • NEW - Features a section on Reclaiming Waste Water for Drinking and a description of the water reclamation process used by the city of Windhoek, Namibia (South Africa).
  • NEW - Adds additional references and e-mail addresses, where available.
