            Fundamentals of Hydrology provides an absorbing and comprehensive introduction to the understanding of how fresh water moves on and around the planet and how humans affect and manage the freshwater resources available to them. The book consists of three parts, each of fundamental... importance in the understanding of hydrology: * The first section deals with processes within the hydrological cycle, our understanding of them, and how to measure and estimate the amount of water within each process. This also includes an analysis of how each process impacts upon water quality issues. * The second section is concerned with the measurement and analytical assessment of important hydrological parameters such as streamflow and water quality. It describes analytical and modelling techniques used by practising hydrologists in the assessment of water resources. * The final section of the book draws together the first two parts to discuss the management of freshwater with respect to both water quality and quantity in a changing world. Fundamentals of Hydrology is a lively and accessible introduction to the study of hydrology at university level. It gives undergraduates a thorough understanding of hydrological processes, knowledge of the techniques used to assess water resources and an up-to-date overview of water resource management. Throughout the text examples and case studies from all around the world are used to clearly explain ideas and techniques. Short chapter summaries, essay questions, guides to further reading, website links and a glossary are also included. The third edition provides new and updated case study material and includes a new chapter on measuring streamflow. This chapter has particular reference to recent technological advances in this field and the challenges in maintaining a high quality river flow data set.

            The world's oceans cover just over 70.8 per cent of the Earth's surface, and yet we know more about the moon then what lies beneath these dark waters. As early as 5000 BC, efforts have been made to map these oceans, establish trade routes and discover new lands. In more recent ye...ars, this energy has focused downwards, into the ocean's inky depths and shadowy seabeds. Award winning writer Carolyn Fry explores all of the above, narrating centuries of maritime exploration - from James Cook to James Cameron - and the fascinating discoveries have helped to map the world. This book is produced in collaboration with the National Maritime Museum. Based in Greenwich, London, this prestigious museum has the largest archives for maritime history in the world, comprising of more than 1.5 million items. Dedicated to conservation, educational outreach and cutting-edge research, the NMM is a world-leading institution in the study of maritime history. This beautifully illustrated full-color book includes an incredible selection of rare maps from their archives, from historic sea charts to topographic maps of the ocean floor. Combining remarkable history with pioneering science, Mapping the Oceans includes all you need to know about this fantastic and tantalizing of phenomena - the sea.

            California has some of the most distinctive and unique geology in the United States. It is the only state with all three types of plate boundaries, an extraordinary history of earthquakes and volcanoes, and it has many rocks and minerals found nowhere else. The Golden State inclu...des both the highest and lowest point in the continental US and practically every conceivable geological feature known. This book discusses not only the important geologic features of each region in California, but also the complex geologic four-dimensional puzzle of how California was assembled, beginning over 2 billion years ago. The author provides up-to-date and authoritative review of the geology and geomorphology of each geologic province, as well as recent revelations of tectonic history of California's past. There are separate chapters on some of California's distinctive geologic resources, including gold, oil, water, coastlines, and fossils. An introductory section describes basic rock and mineral types and fundamental aspects of plate tectonics, so that students and other readers can make sense of the bizarre, wild, and crazy jigsaw puzzle that is California's geological history.
