A THOROUGH INTRODUCTION TO ENTROPY THEORY AND ITS APPLICATIONS IN HYDROLOGIC SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING
This comprehensive volume addresses basic concepts of entropy theory from a hydrologic engineering perspective. The application of these concepts to a wide range of hydrologic engineering problems is discussed in detail. The book is divided into sections--preliminaries, rainfall and evapotranspiration, subsurface flow, surface flow, and environmental considerations. Helpful equations, solutions, tables, and diagrams are included throughout this practical resource.
Entropy Theory in Hydrologic Science and Engineering covers:
Introduction to entropy theory
Maximum entropy production principle
Evaluation and design of sampling and measurement networks
Rainfall frequency distributions
Evaluation of precipitation forecasting schemes
Assessment of potential water resources availability
Hydrologic frequency analysis
River flow regime classification
