Wilfried Brutsaert (2022 Stockholm Water Prize Laureate) has revised and updated his classic textbook to take into account recent developments, while retaining the rigor and structure of the previous edition to introduce the fundamental principles of hydrology. New topics include the response of the global water cycle to climate change, the land surface energy budget closure, snow melt, groundwater trends and statistical surface variability with disturbed atmospheric boundary layers. Hydrologic phenomena are dealt with at the spatial and temporal scales at which they occur in nature. The physics and mathematics necessary to describe these phenomena are introduced and developed: readers will require a working knowledge of calculus and basic fluid mechanics. This classroom-tested textbook - based on the author' s long-running course at Cornell - is invaluable for entry-level courses in hydrology directed at advanced undergraduate and graduate students in physical science and engineering. In addition, it is also a great reference text for practising scientists and engineers.
Professor Brutsaert has been active in education and research for over fifty years at Cornell University, where he has taught courses in hydrology, fluid mechanics, ground water, and atmospheric boundary layer physics. He has been widely recognized for his research and has received many awards, including the Bowie Medal and the Horton Medal from the American Geophysical Union; the Charney Medal and Honorary Membership from the American Meteorological Society; and the International Award and Honorary Membership from the Japan Society of Hydrology and Water Resources. He was awarded a ' Doctor Honoris Causa' title at Ghent University, and he was the recipient of the Prince Sultan Bin Abdulaziz International Prize for Water. Most notably, in 2022 he was awarded the Stockholm Water Prize. He is a member of the U. S. National Academy of Engineering. Professor Brutsaert was President of the Hydrology Section of the American Geophysical Union, served as a Council member of the American Meteorological Society, and as Section Chair of the National Academy of Engineering. He is also the author of the book Evaporation into the Atmosphere (1982, Springer).
