Overview

In this volume, leading hydrologists present their views on the role of scale effects in hydrologic phenomena occuring in a range of field settings. Self-contained and thought-provoking chapters cover both theoretical and applied hydrology. They provide critical insights into important topics such as general circulation models, floods, river networks, vadose zone processes, groundwater transport, and fluid flow through fractured media. This book is intended as an accessible introduction for graduate students and researchers to some of the most significant questions and challenges that face hydrologic science.
