I had to take a forest soils and hydrology course as part of my undergraduate study in forestry. I had never taken a hydrology course and frankly didn't have the slightest idea what to expect in this class. This book happened to be on the recommended readings list on the course syllabus. I found it at a reasonable price on so I purchased it. This turned out to be a great investment! Not only did it help me during this particular class, but I find myself revisiting it from time to time in graduate school. The book is written in a very natural, easy to understand way that I was able to grasp immediately. It should be noted this book only teaches the basics of hydrology, hence the title "Fundamentals of Hydrology," so if you already have an intro to hydrology text you may find this text to be redundant.
Do not purchase the Kindle edition until they fix the errors.This Kindle edition has lots of words missing in chapter 2.For example:"This is throu bination of altitude, slope, aspect and d weather direction influences and can occur different scales...THE RAIN SHADOW EFF".I haven't contacted anyone about this defect yet. Because I haven't figure out how to exchange or contact anyone about a Kindle edition defect.
I mean it's a book. I got a B in the class. Meh.
