This book represents a new "earth systems" approach to catchments that encompasses the physical and biogeochemical interactions that control the hydrology and biogeochemistry of the system. The text provides a comprehensive treatment of the fundamentals of catchment hydrology, principles of isotope geochemistry, and the isotope variability in the hydrologic cycle -- but the main focus of the book is on case studies in isotope hydrology and isotope geochemistry that explore the applications of isotope techniques for investigating modern environmental problems. Isotope Tracers in Catchment Hydrology is the first synthesis of physical hydrology and isotope geochemistry with catchment focus, and is a valuable reference for professionals and students alike in the fields of hydrology, hydrochemistry, and environmental science. This important interdisciplinary text provides extensive guidelines for the application of isotope techniques for all investigatores facing the challenge of protecting precious water, soil, and ecological resources from the ever-increasing problems associated with population growth and environmental change, including those from urban development and agricultural land uses.

MEDIA REVIEWS
G.M. Hornberger ...will surely become required reading in graduate courses around the world. EOS Transactions A. Zuber ...The book is an excellent presentation of the problems encountered in catchment studies, available and potential tracer methods and descriptions of case studies. The book can also be recommended as updated handbook on the basic principles of the isotope geochemistry and tracer methods applicable to catchments... the book is highly recommended... Hydrological Sciences Journal, Vol.44, No.6 M.R. van der Valk ...Translated from Dutch: The design of the book is very well thought-out. The graphic styling is clear, sharp, and well organized. ...Those interested in isotopenhydrologie should not hesitate and immediately obtain a copy. As Sampurno Bruijnzeel would say: "Excellent!". Stromingen 5, No. 4 M.R. Rosen ...The paperback book is presented exceptionally well and the figures and layout are of the highest quality. ...The fundamental detail and explanations of isotope tracer techniques as well as the plentiful real world examples from all parts of the globe and every conceivable environment make this book an excellent reference and a must for hydrologists, students and even isotope hydrology specialists. I heartily recommend this book to those interested in the use of isotope tracers in New Zealand and anywhere else in the world. Journal of Hydrology (New Zealand) P.M. Rowinski, J.J. Napiorkowski ...This extensive volume is an important contribution that will stimulate interest in the examination of hydrologic processes in small catchments. ...it is easy to read, considering how much ground is covered, and as such can be very helpful for a variety of readers starting from graduate students and ending at researchers using isotopes in their studies. The book provides many useful examples, illustrations, references, making it concise and clear. Pure and Applied Geophysics
