Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This book offers a wealth of information to anyone seeking a survey of the state of the hydrologic modeling disciple in the research community in the late 1980s...The book is an excellent source of information for students seeking topics that may prove worthy of further research and study. Practitioners of hydrology would also benefit from exposure to the activities at the leading edge of their filed of interest. It also serves as a means of introducing people to aspects of hydrology that are outside their editors are to be commended for their efforts in presenting this material to the hydrologic community.' Bulletin American meteorological Society 73:12 1992
