A THOROUGH INTRODUCTION TO ENTROPY THEORY AND ITS APPLICATIONS IN HYDROLOGIC SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING

This comprehensive volume addresses basic concepts of entropy theory from a hydrologic engineering perspective. The application of these concepts to a wide range of hydrologic engineering problems is discussed in detail. The book is divided into sections--preliminaries, rainfall and evapotranspiration, subsurface flow, surface flow, and environmental considerations. Helpful equations, solutions, tables, and diagrams are included throughout this practical resource.

Entropy Theory in Hydrologic Science and Engineering covers:

  • Introduction to entropy theory
  • Maximum entropy production principle
  • Performance measures
  • Morphological analysis
  • Evaluation and design of sampling and measurement networks
  • Precipitation variability
  • Rainfall frequency distributions
  • Evaluation of precipitation forecasting schemes
  • Assessment of potential water resources availability
  • Evaporation
  • Infiltration
  • Soil moisture
  • Groundwater flow
  • Rainfall-runoff modeling
  • Streamflow simulation
  • Hydrologic frequency analysis
  • Streamflow forecasting
  • River flow regime classification
  • Sediment yield
  • Eco-index
