This book defines concepts of stochastic processes, gives mathematical formulae, explains techniques and applications to hydrology, usually in the form of examples.


DESCRIPTION

Stochastic Processes in Hydrology is a presentation of the various methods of analyzing stochastic processes in hydrology by discussing various methods for investigating hydrologic stochastic processes by showing their potentials, limitations, and results.

This publication is aimed: (1) practicing hydrologists, water resources engineers and other specialists dealing with certain facets of hydrology and water resources in general; (2) graduate students and participants of various post-graduate training courses, who intend to specialize in hydrology; and (3) specialists other than hydrologists in related fields who are interested in stochastic processes as applied to hydrology, including statisticians and geophysicists who want to increase their understanding of the ways in which stochastic processes can be applied to hydrology. It is now part of WRP’s Classic Resource Edition.
