Global Hydrology Reviews


"This book provides a larger-scale perspective on hydrology than many other books (as well as containing material on catchment processes). There is some informative material on human water demand, water management and human impacts on hydrological processes and river regimes as well as a good section on modelling runoff." - Holden, J., 2005. An Introduction to Physical Geography and the Environment. Harlow, Pearson Prentice Hall, Chapter 13 "Catchment hydrology: Further reading":

"... all changed during the last decade and science has `gone global'. Hence it is timely and appropriate that Global Hydrology should be published. Dr Jones is to be praised for his initiative and for making his expertise available through the medium.... Global Hydrology is a very welcome addition." - Professor J C Rodda, immediate Past President of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences

"Global Hydrology... goes beyond science, dealing with some of the philosophical issues that underpin modern hydrological practice.... challeng(ing) conventional engineering solutions... This allegiance of both scientific and sociocontextual material helps us to see the interactions between human and physical environments." - Institute of British Geographers
