This comprehensive reference combines sampling and analysis of wildland water in one text. It includes sampling techniques for precipitation, surface water, and ground water. Analytical techniques for common water quality constituents are described.
- Step-by-step laboratory procedures for measuring pH, conductivity, solids turbidity, alkalinity, and hardness
- End-of-chapter reviews with study questions and key words
- Review of solution chemistry
- Detailed field sampling procedures and program design
Both a reference for professional hydrologists and a main text for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students studying (wildland) water quality and land use.
