Drainage Basin Hydrology: A Review and Synthesis

Resource type
Date created
This paper is the second of a four-part review and discussion of the basic principles and theories of river behaviour. This discussion paper is a relatively comprehensive review of drainage basin hydrology, although it is intentionally biased towards hydrologic conditions in Canada. For example, the treatment of snowmelt runoff is more detailed than those found in standard texts. Emphasis has also been given to certain topics which are directly relevant to the discussion in other parts of this River Studies series. Throughout this work I have attempted to "translate" the often highly technical discussion into a form that a generalist in the earth sciences would find useful.
