Palaeohydrology - Victor R. Baker

Palaeohydrology originated with and continues to have a strong focus on palaeofluvial processes, especially palaeoflooding, and this is reflected in eight sections:

  • Channel Patterns and Regime commences with Davis’s 1913 paper on underfit rivers, classics by Dury (1954, 1965) and Schumm (1968), and an important Polish contribution, Korzarski and Rotnicki (1977).
  • River Floodplains and Terraces illustrates how mapping and quantitative description became the basis for palaeo¬hydrological interpretation of the landscape.
  • Alluvial Chronology considers how the development of dating aided studies that identified major changes driven by climate.
  • Sediment Transport shows how engineering/geomorphologic under¬standing of sediment processes was initially used to back-calculate the flows associated with fluvial events.
  • Megafloods are high-discharge (>106 m3/s) flood flows now known to have been especially important at the end of the Pleistocene, but in 1923, Bretz’s hypothesis of such “cataclysmic flows” was controversial.
  • Palaeoflood Hydrology brings together the papers that mark the development from geological investigation of flood-scarred landscapes to a broader, global science rooted in environmental change studies.
  • Palaeobotanical evidence to aid palaeohydrological work originated in the 1960s, and Sigafoos (1964) is a significant contribution.
  • Palaeolakes were found to afford information central to understanding past climate in the 1960s and three seminal papers are included.

An excellent resource for graduate and post-graduate level courses in hydrology and hydro-geomorphology, reproducing many important papers that are otherwise difficult to access.

Victor R. Baker is Regents Professor in Hydrology and Water Resources at the University of Arizona, USA, and holds joint chairs in the departments of Geosciences and Planetary Sciences there. His research interests broadly concern palaeohydrology and related aspects of geomorphology, with a particular focus on flood processes. He also works in the area of planetary geomorphology and on issues that involve Earth science in relation to public policy, the environment and philosophy of science.

Isotope Hydrology - P. K. Aggarwal, K. O. Fröhlich, J. R. Gat & R. Gonfiantini

Isotope Hydrology uses stable and radioactive isotopes of water and its dissolved constituents to trace hydrological processes, including the pathways of rainfall and snowmelt to, and interactions between, aquifers, lakes and rivers. The potential of using stable isotopes of water was recognized in the 1930s, but not fully explored until the 1950s, since when the scope and nature of isotope applications in hydrology have blossomed. Improvements in measure¬ment techniques have facilitated use of isotopes in many contexts, and isotope hydrology has become mainstream, as documented in this volume of reprinted papers and accompanying commentaries. Section A. Fundamentals includes the first papers on deuterium, 18O and tritium contents in natural waters (Friedman, 1953; Epstein & Mayeda, 1953; Libby, 1953), and Craigâas (1961) seminal paper which defined the global meteoric water line used to understand the source of natural waters. The papers that shaped our understanding of isotopes in precipitation and global circulation, e.g. Dansgaard (1964) and Craig & Gordon (1965), come in B. Atmospheric Water Cycle. The early interpretation of isotope sequences in rock and ice, including the iconic Greenland ice sheet core (Dansgaard et al., 1969), are included in C. Palaeoclimates. D. River and Lake Hydrology contains influential papers on the use of isotopes to determine the origin of stream and lake waters. E. Groundwater deals with the origin of groundwaters, the earliest use of tritium, 14C, 81Kr and 36Cl to date them, and isotope applications in pollution and groundwater remediation. An excellent resource for graduate and post-graduate level courses in hydrology, reproducing many important papers which are otherwise difficult to access.

Hydro-Geomorphology, Erosion and Sedimentation - Michael J. Kirkby

In the short term, hydrology responds to the topography, soils and vegetation of the landscape, but over longer time spans the entire landscape is moulded by the flow of water. The process scale ranges from the splash erosion by individual raindrops to the accumulation of sediment as alluvial fans, to the evolution of drainage networks. Kirkby presents a systematic analysis of the relationships between hydrology and geomorphology with commentaries on the papers which have been most influential in the development of research at the hydrology/geomorphology interface. Thirty-seven papers are reprinted in full or in part, the majority published pre-1970, including early contributions by Fisher (1866), Davison (1889) and Gilbert (1909), and seminal papers by Hack, Strahler, Wolman & Miller, and Melton, among others. An excellent resource for graduate and post-graduate level courses in geomorphology and hydrology, reproducing many important papers which are otherwise difficult to access.

Riparian Zone Hydrology and Biogeochemistry - T. P. Burt, G. Pinay and S. Sabater

Study specifically of riparian zones is relatively new in hydrology, and while the oldest benchmark paper selected for this volume dates to 1936, several of the others were published in the 1970s and 1980s. Burt, Pinay and Sabater introduce them with a review of the role of the riparian zone. Its services as a buffer for nitrates and other agricultural and industrial pollutants has focused the attention of ecologists and hydrologists. It is an ecological boundary between terrestrial and aquatic environments, but also a distinct ecotone because of the intimate connection between the two. The 36 benchmark papers are grouped under the topics Landscape Ecology, Hydrology of the Riparian Zone, Linking Riparian Zone Hydrology to Solute Transport, Biogeochemical Processes and Methods, Riparian Buffering of Surface and Subsurface Flows, and In-stream Processes. Together, the reprinted papers and the commentaries by the editors chart the breakthroughs in the development of this important.

Groundwater - Mary P. Anderson

Mary Anderson's selection and the commentaries that she has prepared to accompany the 35 reprinted papers, detail the development of groundwater hydrology during the 20th century. The fundamentals are introduced with a translation of Darcy's (1856) experimental results that led to Darcy's law, as well as classic papers by Meinzer, Theis and Hubbert, among others. The development of pumping test theory and practice, approaches to estimating aquifer parameters in the field, and flow system analysis are dealt with. Papers reflecting early concerns regarding quantification of uncertainty, how recognition of groundwater interaction with surface water grew, and early research on contaminant occurrence and transport, are included. Slichter's (1905) seminal contribution that identified dispersion in the field, and Skibitzke & Robinson's (1963) laboratory findings, are linked with more recent attempts to represent dispersion and heterogeneity with models.

Evaporation - John H. C. Gash & W. James Shuttleworth 

The development of evaporation measurement techniques are documented first, commencing with the Wagon Wheel Gap catchment water balance (1921), through mass budget to water transfer methods, and use of scintillometry. Dalton's seminal essay On Evaporation (1802) starts the selection of papers on evaporation estimation, which then covers atmospheric controls on the evaporation process (the original Penman and Thornthwaite papers are reproduced), vegetation controls via transpiration and interception, and finally evaporation as a component of the global climate system. The Commentaries explain the context and significance of each paper.

Hydrological Sciences and Water Security: Past, Present and Future

Water Security is “the capacity of a population to safeguard access to adequate quantities of water of acceptable quality for sustaining human and ecosystem health on a watershed basis, and to ensure efficient protection of life and property against water related hazards – floods, landslides, land subsidence and droughts” (UNESCO-IHP 2012). Thus, Water Security addresses the threats posed by floods, droughts and pollution spills to human societies, and also the impacts of inadequate supplies of water, both in quantity and quality, for food and energy production, for domestic and industrial purposes, and for sustaining ecosystem productivity.

The contributions arise from the 2014 Kovacs Colloquium held at UNESCO in Paris, which addressed the emergence and development of water security concepts. The invited keynote papers are accompanied by extended abstracts summarizing the posters presented.

Print copies of the volume are available here. Abstracts and papers are also available online open access as volume 366 of PIAHS (Proceedings of IAHS) at:

The hydrosphere is dynamic across the major compartments of the Earth system: the atmosphere, the oceans and seas, the land surface water, and the groundwater within the strata below the two last compartments. The global geography of the hydrosphere essentially depends on thermodynamic and mechanical processes that develop within this structure. Water-related processes at the interfaces between the compartments are complex, depending both on the interface itself, and on the characteristics of the interfaced compartments.
Various aspects of global change directly or indirectly impact these interfaces and interfaced compartments and processes. Climate, sea-level, oceanographic currents and hydrological processes are all affected, while anthropogenic changes are often intense in the geographic settings corresponding to such interfaces.

This volume combines selected papers from two symposia, HP2 and HP3, held during the 2013 IAHS-IAPSO-IASPEI Assembly in Gothenburg, Sweden:
HP2: Land–Ocean Interaction – Hydrodynamics and Biogeochemistry, and
HP3: Implications of Sea Level Change for the Coastal Zone.

Hydrology in a Changing World: Environmental and Human Dimensions


The FRIEND-Water (Flow Regimes from International and Experimental Network Data) programme is an international collaborative research initiative under the umbrella of UNESCO’s International Hydrological Programme (IHP); it facilitates understanding about how climate, river basin and human factors influence the spatial and temporal distribution of water. This publication is the reviewed proceedings papers of the
7th World FRIEND Conference held in France in October 2014. The 75 contributions share knowledge on changes in hydrological processes and their impacts, including ecological flows, erosion and sedimentation, and the development of adaptable water management and water policies to account for these impacts, as well as changes in the frequency and variability of floods and droughts due to a variety of factors.

Considering Hydrological Change in Reservoir Planning and Management

This book provides an excellent overview of contemporary problems in reservoir management, from planning aspects of large multi-objective reservoirs and regarding small farm dams in Africa, to governmental matters, to sedimentation issues, to climate change impacts. Given the stochastic nature of hydrological conditions, the limited information available to characterize it and the multi-faceted targets of reservoir management, reservoir planning and operation are ambitious challenges for hydrologists and water managers. Reservoir management considers supply and demand. Demand includes the objectives of water management, but also the expectations of society, which develop with time; ecological targets for reservoir operation are now more important, social aspects and requirements are relevant and there are new constraints and objectives for operation of even older dams. The supply side has become more uncertain with increasing awareness of climate change causing growing concern about its impacts on the performance and reliability of existing and planned water management systems.

Cold and Mountain Region Hydrological Systems under Climate Change: Towards Improved Projections

Author / Editor: A. Gelfan, Daqing Yang, Y. Gusev & H. Kunstmann
Publication Number: 360
ISBN Number: 978-1-907161-38-4
Year: 2013
Pages: 184

Price: £57.00

The 25 contributions present new research results obtained from both experimental and modelling studies of river basins, snow cover, permafrost, glaciers and ecosystems in cold regions located in different physiographic and climatic conditions, from the Andes to the Siberian tundra. Collectively, the studies reveal physical mechanisms that control cold region hydrological responses to climate change, and consider the sources and magnitude of uncertainties to improve projections of these responses under different geographical conditions and at various time scales. There are three sections to the volume:

(1) Mountain hydrological systems under changes;

(2) Lowland cold regions: changes in river flow; and

(3) Changes in cryo- and eco-systems.

Climate and Land Surface Changes in Hydrology

Author / Editor: Eva Boegh, E. Blyth, D.M. Hannah, H. Hisdal, H. Kunstmann, B. Su & K. Yilmaz

Price: £95.00

Focuses on field-based and modelling studies addressing the sensitivity of hydrological and hydrometeorological fluxes of the coupled land–atmosphere system to climate and land-use change at local, regional and global scales. The volume includes significant model-based studies evaluating methodologies and impacts of using climate and weather prediction data including downscaling and uncertainty analyses. Hydrological sensitivity and impacts due to spatial and temporal land-use and land-cover variability are reported for a wide variety of environmental settings. Observational and model-based investigations assess the significance of land cover and hydrological dynamics for the development of land surface heat fluxes and regional climate. Several empirical hydroclimatological studies, some from remote and data-scarce regions, and others using long-term multi-variable time series data or Earth Observations to evaluate temporal and spatial variability in precipitation, evapotranspiration and hydrological predictions, are included.

Deltas: Landforms, Ecosystems and Human Activities

Deltas are environmental and economic hot spots, occupy about 1% of the global land surface, are home to some 500 million people and often are vibrant ecosystems. Deltas pose great challenges, whether marine or lacustrine as regions of purely natural conditions or regions of intense human activity set in the context of complex and often rapidly changing natural environments. Physically they are complex systems, the end-products of catchment processes involving water supply, sediment delivery and water quality – elements that are fast changing over time as a result both of human influences and change in climatic drivers. Tides, waves, sea level changes, storm surges, tsunamis and littoral currents all impact. The contributions result from a joint symposium of the International Associations of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS) and Physical Sciences of the Ocean (IAPSO).

Changes in Flood Risk

Author / Editor: Zbigniew W. Kundzewicz
Publication Number: SP10
ISBN Number: 978-1-907161-28-5
Year: 2012

Floods are the most prevalent natural hazard in Europe. But, has flood risk increased in the continent? How, where, and why? Are climate change impacts apparent? How do socio-economic trends and associated land-use change impact flood risk? This interdisciplinary book, authored by an international team, offers: • A comprehensive overview of flood risk in Europe, past and present, and future • National/regional chapters covering Central Europe, Western Europe, Southern Europe and Northern Europe, the Alpine region and the Iberian Peninsula. • A focus on detection and attribution of change with respect to climate change and its impacts, water resources and flood risk, the re-insurer’s view point, and future projections of flood risk • Rectification of common-place judgements, e.g.: “climate is warming so floods should become more frequent and intense”; observations do not always confirm this expectation

Leonardo Da Vinci's Water Theory: On the origin and fate of water

Author / Editor: Laurent. Pfister, Hubert H. G. Savenije & Fabrizio Fenicia
Publication Number: SP9
ISBN Number: 978-1-901502-34-3

Price: £25.00

Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519) was not only one of the greatest artists of his time, he was also a great engineer and scientist. A large part of his scientific work was dedicated to understanding the movement, circulation and physical characteristics of water in its different forms. This book aims to make Leonardo Da Vinci's contributions to the science of water accessible to a wider public and to compare his ideas with our present knowledge. Fascinating, revealing and inspiring, Leonardo Da Vinci's Water Theory opens up a new history to the study of water. Two hundred years before Newton, Perrault and Halley, Leonardo Da Vinci was doing hypothesis-driven science and describing and classifying hydrological processes. For example, he came close to the modern definition of the hydrological cycle, recognising that water passes through the major river systems countless times, summing up to volumes much greater than those contained in the world's oceans.

HYDROLOGY : A question of balance

Author / Editor: J. V. Sutcliffe
Publication Number: SP7
ISBN Number: 978-1-901502-770
Year: 2004
Pages: 200

Price: £30.00

Hydrology: A Question of Balance is a unique hydrology text. It brings hydrological analysis to life by means of examples in which the author has been involved: numerous practical problems that had to be tackled (often despite limited data, resources and time) are described and the methods that were used to find a solution are explained. The application of a water balance is an essential component of solving these applied problems. John Sutcliffe offers the experience of a hydrologist with extraordinary practical expertise, assembled in areas with different climates, topographies, levels of development, and cultures. Projects in many countries, including Sudan, Iran, Senegal, Botswana, India, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Bosnia, Poland and the UK, are detailed to illustrate how hydrologists can, and need to, use all the available information to understand the hydrological context of their studies. Practising hydrologists and engineers, as well as students, will learn from this volume which complements standard hydrology textbooks.

The Ecohydrology of South American Rivers and Wetlands

Author / Editor: Michael E. McClain
Publication Number: SP6
ISBN Number: 978-1-901502-02--2
Year: 2002
Pages: 210

Price: £39.50

An overview of ecohydrological processes operating in South America’s most important aquatic systems. River reaches ranging from pristine to heavily impacted and processes operating in channels, wetlands, and riparian environments are considered. The Amazon, Orinoco, and Paraná, receive the greatest attention, but the condition of the Piracicaba (São Paulo) and the Paraíba do Sul (Rio de Janeiro) are also evaluated. There is an urgent need for action— many spectacular ecosystems remain to be preserved. The natural attenuation processes in these ecosystems stand to aid South America in achieving its goal for sustainable use of its resources Ecohydrological processes serve to regulate environmental conditions within aquatic systems, maintaining energy levels, water quantity and water quality, within ranges suitable to native flora and fauna. South America, the wettest and most ecologically diverse continent on Earth with an unrivalled waterscape of giant rivers and wetlands, has great opportunities to capitalize on the natural attenuation effects of ecohydrological processes. South Americans have greatly benefited from the resources derived from their rivers and wetlands, but these aquatic systems have not generally benefited from their association with humans. Dam building, dredging, and canalization are expanding across the continent, eliminating the natural flow regimes of many river reaches and draining wetlands. Much riparian vegetation lying along river margins has been removed. Disturbance of riparian zones has changed the rates of material exchanges from land to aquatic systems, generally increasing erosion and contaminant fluxes. Uncontrolled waste discharges have also degraded water quality in many urban rivers and wetlands, with consequent negative impacts on the health of many urban and downstream rural poor

The Hydrology of the Nile

Author / Editor: J. V. Sutcliffe & Y. P. Parks
Publication Number: SP5
ISBN Number: 978-1-901502-75-6
Year: 1999
Pages: 180

Price: £15.00

This book presents an account of the hydrology of the whole Nile basin, dealing with each tributary in turn but drawing attention to links between reaches. The Nile is shown to be a set of very different tributaries which came together by geological accident. Nevertheless, evidence from one part of the basin often throws light on a different area. Recent changes are discussed, in particular the dramatic change of regime of Lake Victoria and other lakes which occurred after 1961. The relationship between hydrology and vegetation affects the important wetlands of the White Nile basin, and discussion of this relationship includes the effect of increased lake outflows. The authors draw on the extensive records collected throughout the basin to paint a detailed hydrological picture of the regime of the Nile. The book is illustrated by over 100 diagrams and photographs, and its scope is indicated by the list of contents overleaf. J. V. Sutcliffe has worked on all the major Nile tributaries over a period of 50 years and has been the author of many papers and reports on the different hydrological problems. Y. P. Parks has worked on hydrological models of the Sudd and on water resources problems of several Nile tributaries
