Entropy Theory in Hydrologic Science and Engineering

by: Vijay P. Singh, Ph.D., D.Sc., D.Eng. (Hon.), Ph.D. (Hon.), P.E., P.H., Hon.D.WRE


Abstract: 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 conditions. Helpful equations, solutions, tables, and diagrams are included throughout this practical resource.
