Description

Advances in Hydroscience, Volume 5 contains articles in three major areas of hydroscience, namely, stochastic hydrology, subsurface flow, and solid-state hydrology.
This volume is composed of four chapters, and begins with a comprehensive review of the basic concepts, developments, and their potential application in stochastic hydrology, with emphasis on time series analysis and synthesis (model building). The next chapter deals with some of the advances in various scientific disciplines and their application to the analysis and prediction of seepage losses from open channels. These topics are followed by discussions on various phenomena of snow metamorphism, sintering, and development of intergranular bonds; a few methods for determining thermal conductivity, water vapor diffusivity; and the essential concepts of radiation interaction with a snow medium. The final chapter surveys the theory of infiltration, which is one important outcome of the mathematical-physical approach to the study of water movement in unsaturated soil. This chapter specifically presents the general flow equation (a nonlinear Fokker-Planck equation). This book is of great value to hydrologists, engineers, scientists, and researchers who are interested in the interdisciplinary field of hydroscience.
