Ground And Surface Water Hydrology

Larry Mays' Hydrology is a comprehensive text stressing fundamentals of hydrologic process for both surface water hydrology and groundwater hydrology. The text makes use of internet resources, such as free modeling tools, to help solve more complicated and real-world problems more quickly, and motivate interest in the topics. The book focuses on Water Resources Engineering as a subset of Hydrology and Water Resources Engineering covering sources of water that are useful to humans. Hydrology includes both water resources engineering, and more in-depth coverage of the hydrologic cycle (the continuous circulation of water in the atmosphere, land, surface water, and groundwater). The hydrologic effects of climate change is covered, as well as newer topics in hydrology including use of GIS, remote sensing, NEXRAD and other topics. Emphasis is given to the hydrologic processes and practice in the different climates: humid climate, cold climate, temperate climate, and arid and semi-arid climate.   --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

The Introduction to this book is written terribly. I'm no editor, but even I can tell that it is a a disaster. Here's some examples that are all within the first three pages and within the section 1.1.2-What is Hydrology?:1) "The United Nations Children’s Fund’s (UNICEF) report, The State of the World’s Children 2005: Children under Threat, concluded that more than half the children in the developing world are severely deprived of various necessities essential to childhood; such as 500 million children have no access to sanitation and 400 million children have no access to safe water. One might ask how sustainable is this?"Good question. How sustainable are poverty, unclean drinking water, and unsanitary conditions? Really? Even if the last sentence was an appropriate question, there needs to be a colon added between "ask" and "how," as such: One might ask: how sustainable is this?2) "The number of mega cities (populations over 10 million) will increase significantly. In other words, megacities mean mega problems from many perspectives, not only from a water resources viewpoint, ranging from water supplyto water excess management (flood management)."Yes, that's where the sentence ends. There is no "but also...[clause]" to go along with the "not only..."The next sentence is:3) "Mega cities and other large cities will be a drain to the Earth’s dwindling resources, while significantly contributing to the environmental degradation.""THE environmental degradation." Is there only one environmental degradation?
