Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'...The authors of papers and the editors of this volume are to be congratulated for their service to the community of researchers in shastic hydrology. This excellent book deserves a place in the personal and institutional libraries of statistical hydrologists.' Water Resources Bulletin, June 1987
'In the reviewer's opinion most hydrologists with some knowledge of the probabilistic side of their subject will find something to interest them in most of the articles, and, no doubt, quite a lot in some of them. ...a tribute should be paid to the excellent bibliographies, which form such a valuable feature. These would be particularly helpful to anyone who wishes to find their way into the literature of an unfamiliar field.' Hydrological Science Journal, April 1988
