Overview

Excerpt from Notes on Hydrology and the Application of Its Laws to the Problems of Hydraulic Engineering

These notes are intended to form the basis for an introductory study of the fundamental phenomena of Hydrology, on which the applied science of Hydraulic Engineering should be based.

The volume of literature covering many of the various branches of this subject is very great. Unfortunately, however, there is no single treatise which discusses the entire subject, and which can be utilized as a text-book or reference book, to which the student may turn when investigating the various branches of this science.

The lack of such a work is the reason for the preparation of these notes, which are intended to be used in connection with various publications to which references are given.

From the nature of this subject, it is almost needless to state that very little new or original matter is included in these notes. The principles and laws of Hydrology must, of necessity, be based almost entirely on extended and long-continued observations, consequently the writer has utilized the observations available from a great many sources, and for long periods of time. As far as possible, the sources of the various data, cuts, formula, etc., have been acknowledged, some of the tables have been photographed from other publications, in order to facilitate the publication of these notes (which have been prepared between June and September), hence the typographical work and illustrations are not entirely homogeneous, but the desirable data rather than the typographical method of its presentation has been the main object of this edition.
