Drawing upon his broad personal experience and employing both clear prose and revealing illustrations, he discusses and supports the approximations needed to answer quantitative questions. His fine textbook will become the accepted starting point for learning this branch of geophysics.

The language is informal – that of the patient master passing on both knowledge and wisdom to a new generation. Those who learn from this book will be rewarded by gaining understanding and competence at the highest level; those who teach from it will be blessed by the steadfast assistance of an impeccable source, wrought from a long and productive experience by one of the great figures in scientific hydrology.

In this book Brutsaert has provided a ladder for student and teacher to build a solid understanding from principles to practice This book provides a remarkable, sorely needed, foundational text upon which the science of hydrology will build in the coming decades. An Introduction is destined to become a classic – and an indispensable resource for students of hydrology. Building from a foundation of fluid mechanics in the environment, Wilfried Brutsaert clearly and eloquently presents the essentials of modern hydrology.

This book takes an original, lucid approach to this important subject matter, injecting a much-needed breath of fresh air into the study of fundamental hydrologic phenomena. This is necessary reading, both as a comprehensive and authoritative introduction to hydrology, and also as a brilliant exposition that captures the authoras excitement and appreciation of the subject.

Green “This book provides a comprehensive introduction to science of hydrology covering water existing in the atmosphere, on land, and in the Earth The author shows his extensive knowledge in hydrology and provides an excellent book. Bartel “The analytical approaches are very appropriate for an introductory hydrology textbook because it provides better physical insight into the hydrological processes than numerical models of those processes Brutsaert’s book is a remarkable textbook for university-level classes on hydrology as well as a valuable reference for soil physicists, hydrologists and hydro-geologists.

This textbook presents a coherent introduction to the fundamental principles of hydrology for entry-level courses for advanced seniors and graduate students. It will also be more broadly of interest to professional scientists and engineers in hydrology, environmental science, meteorology, agronomy, geology, climatology, oceanology, glaciology and other earth sciences.

If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? Water in its different forms has always been a source of wonder, curiosity and practical concern for humans everywhere. An Introduction presents a coherent introduction to the fundamental principles of hydrology, based on the course that Wilfried Brutsaert has taught at Cornell University for the last thirty years. Hydrologic phenomena are dealt with at spatial and temporal scales at which they occur in nature.


The physics and mathematics necessary to describe these phenomena are introduced and developed, and readers will require a working knowledge of calculus and basic fluid mechanics. The book will be invaluable as a textbook for entry-level courses in hydrology directed at advanced seniors and graduate students in physical science and engineering.

In addition, the book will be more broadly of interest to professional scientists and engineers in hydrology, environmental science, meteorology, agronomy, geology, climatology, oceanology, glaciology and other earth sciences. Read more Read less.

I’m slightly biased, because when I first decided to study hydrology I checked this book out of the library and tried to give it a go, but it was mostly incomprehensible to me because I didn’t yet have the math background to understand it.

I thought the integral symbol was a fancy S. Now that I’ve used it in a class, I think it’s my favorite textbook, but I’m also probably just kind of stoked that I can now understand every bit of it!

The best thing about it in my opinion is that it includes lots of “optional” sections in a different font, so if you want or need to know more about a specific derivation or relationship, it’s laid out very well, but if you aren’t interested you can just skip forward to the next main section. This textbook is a widely recommended hydrology primer for first year grad students or late undergrads and for this role I think it is written well. Students would benefit from taking a rigorous course in fluid mechanics with solutions to ODEs, PDEs before this one, though I do not think there are any other prerequisites.


My brutszert with xn book are two-fold: I found the section on atmospheric turbulence to be relatively confusing and poorly written in explaining the brrutsaert interpretation of turbulent flux transfers. Many times, the author skips algebra steps which are not intuitive–and I say this as a student with an undergraduate degree in physics–and is overly fond of saying “trivial” and “clearly” and “with a quick transformation” and so on. I would personally recommend Dingman’s physical hydrology book though this one is satisfactory.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I gave it three stars because it is not easy to read on my Kindle fire. He is deep into it. This textbook is absolutely fantastic! It covers all of the mathematical analysis and their derivations in a clear and concise manner. In addition, the book is written in literary prose and filled with wonderful factoids regarding hydrology.

Definitely two thumbs up! The book was in pretty good shape. No writing inside and the sides were just a little worn. As mentioned by intdoduction previous low reviewer, this book is not truly an “introduction” in the way we typically consider introductory material. Brutsaert assumes you know your calculus and how to apply it.

However, the book is absolutely hyfrology A material for those interested brugsaert fundamental concepts of hydrologic sciences of any kind. Any class emphasizing this as the primary text will be excellent assuming the professor can keep pace and delve into the subject matter. See all 7 reviews.
