Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The text is authoritative and concise with extensive references. The seminar I took had no text; we referred to many different texts because the student backgrounds and interests were so different (geology, hydrology, agriculture...)

For me this was an excellent text to pull the subject matter together.
