Editorial Reviews

Review

This is not your ordinary textbook…It is eclectic, practical, in places a handbook, a guide to fieldwork…and, perhaps most engaging to me, in places the authors offer personal views as well as more strongly worded opinions. The former often relate to evaluation of alternative approaches, or formulations, of specific solutions to specific hydrologic problems...I hope any student will enjoy, not just profit from, the careful advice given to those involved in their first observations of rivers in the field…
-Professor M. Gordon (Reds) Wolman, Johns Hopkins University. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

I purchased this book to use in Dr. Wards hydrology class and was a bit disappointed with it. This was due to the misleading questions at the end of the chapters that lacked in text data to answer the questions. The most sever of these were in chapter 9 in which you were supplied with charts/tables from agricultural data to calculate the sediment budget of housing development, construction, and forested environments (Q. 9.4, 9.6). Also tables cited in text pointed to wrong information or did not exist at all (Chapt9, Pg. 263, 9.5.4). I gave this book a 2 star because i spent hours of additional time working out problems that could not be answered with the data contained in the book, I also had to explain to the teaching assistant that they were doing the problems wrong because they were using data not applicable to the problems being calculated. (funny thing is i got some bonus points to keep my mouth shut because they told the rest of the students the wrong way to do the problem)

This is by far the worst textbook I have ever been forced to use. I am completing a M.S. degree, and between all of my undergraduate and masters classes, this text has been the most confusing and difficult to use. The equations in the textbook are frequently not explained fully, sometimes they wrap around more than one line of text which makes it difficult to know if it is part of the same equation. The questions at the end of each chapter are written in a confusing manner and it is difficult to know exactly what they are asking. The examples in each chaper do not go through each step of the problem, it will jump from one assumption to the next and not explain how it went from A to B. The index is not accurate and does not point the reader to the correct places in the textbook for concepts. Overall this is a really terrible textbook and has left hating the subject of hydrology.

Wasn't impressed with this book. This book had many mistakes which was quite annoying. Didn't have a choice, was required to have the book for class. It got to the point where I would make assumptions to what the author was getting at for the problems in the book. Units and terms were incorrect for some problems. This led me to rent the book instead of buying. I am glad I did - I have no use for a book that I can't rely on. I wouldn't doubt that the errors are on purpose to justify the creation of new edition$.

This book is SO CONFUSING. I am in a upper 300 level conservation hydrology class and all the students are about to group together to tell the professor to stop giving us assignments out of this book....the writing is horrid and hard to follow. I get its a niche class topic, but hopefully there is something better out there besides THIS book!

This must be the worst textbook ever written. It is filled with typo's, hard to follow instructions, and incomprehensible explanations. It is terrible. If you are in a class that requires this book, don't walk, RUN and drop the class!

This book was a bit dirty...Stain on the front covered when I received it. It had good information inside but I was disappointed at just how used it was...

Environmental hydrology is an excellent text for undergraduate engineering students taking their first-course in hydrology. Now, as a practicing professional, I use this book regularly as a desk reference.
