Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Encyclopedia of Hydrological Sciences, 5-Volume Set to their offering.

Hydrological Sciences has perhaps three important characteristics that, whilst not perhaps unique in terms of scientific context, are of particular relevance to the proposed initiative to develop a definitive research level multi-volume encyclopedia of the subject.

Firstly, the field of Hydrological Sciences is of particular importance in that the process underpinnings that relate to the movement of water from the atmosphere, through and on hill slopes, rivers and floodplain environments are themselves central to related sciences such as ecology, climatology etc. Secondly, hydrological science is a rapidly evolving and developing area but there is a lack of an inclusive reference source that offers an innovative approach melding together information on hydrological processes from sub-catchment to the global scale. Finally, many users and scientists increasingly require software that encapsulates the science of the hydrological problem in a convenient and scientifically credible manner.

This new project acknowledges these three major elements of the science, and for the first time seeks to develop a definitive, research level encyclopedia.

With the increasing pressures on the availability and exploitation of fresh water resources through population increase, pollution and degradation of resources, and variations in distribution from regional and global change in the climate, compilation of knowledge in this area has become a prerequisite for education and training of practising and research hydrologists. The Encyclopedia of Hydrological Sciences is the definitive research level multi-volume treatment of this important topic.

Written and edited by leading worldwide authorities in the field, and comprising nearly 200 substantial articles, the Encyclopedia provides detailed, informed coverage of the subject. Organised into 17 themed parts for the reader’s ease of navigation, it offers up-to-date, scientifically rigorous information on all key aspects of the subject, from sub-catchment to the global scale, in a convenient and credible manner.

  • Written by over 200 contributors
  • Available both in print and online
  • Ideal for researchers in both academia and industry
