Beginning with the basics of water resources and hydrologic cycle, the book contains detailed discussions on simulation and synthetic methods in hydrology, rainfall-runoff analysis, flood frequency analysis, fundamentals of groundwater flow, and well hydraulics. Special emphasis is laid ongroundwater budgeting and numerical methods to deal with situations where analytical solutions are not possible. The book has a balanced coverage of conventional techniques of hydrology along with the latest topics, which makes it equally useful to practising engineers.
