Hydrology and Ground Water: a Practical Text-Book for the Use of Civil Engineers, Surveyors, Students, and all those who deal with the Control of Water

    Abstract

    WITHIN about a hundred and fifty pages the author has attempted to condense a treatment of the various phenomena associated with rainfall and ground water. Naturally the treatment is summary in places. The earlier chapters on rainfall, especially the sections on cycles of rainfall, are least satisfactory, and would require to be expanded if the volume were to be of general value. But it is planned chiefly to meet the needs of the water engineer, and for this purpose it is certainly well arranged, clear, and useful. The chapters on wells and water storage are of particular value.
