Advances in Hydroscience, Volume 6 covers topics on water occurring in air, on land and in the ocean, encompassing all three parts of the total water system on earth: atmosphere, hydrosphere, and lithosphere.
The book starts by discussing the developments in atmospheric water resources, including statistically designed cloud-seeding experiments, long-term commercial projects aimed at increasing precipitation, and the technology of precipitation management. The text then presents articles on the theoretical aspects of drainage of water on land; the basic concepts, principles, and methods of analysis for two liquid flows in a porous medium domain; and the scientific information on the constituents, the physical-chemical properties, and the structure of sea water.
The book will prove invaluable to ground water hydrologists, geologists, petroleum engineers, and scientists and engineers who venture to explore the inner space of the earth.
