Principles of Snow Hydrology describes the factors that control the accumulation, melting and runoff of water from seasonal snowpacks over the surface of the earth. The book addresses not only the basic principles governing snow in the hydrologic cycle, but also the latest applications of remote sensing, and techniques for modeling streamflow from snowmelt across large mixed land-use river basins. Individual chapters are devoted to climatology and distribution of snow, snowpack energy exchange, snow chemistry, ground-based measurements and remote sensing of snowpack characteristics, snowpack management, and modeling snowmelt runoff. Many chapters have review questions and problems with solutions available online. This book is a reference book for practicing water resources managers and a text for advanced hydrology and water resources courses which span fields such as engineering, earth sciences, meteorology, biogeochemistry, forestry and range management, and water resources planning.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...the most up-to-date and extensive treatment available of a scientific field whose importance has been widely recognized in recent years. ... This well-produced volume is profusely illustrated by line drawings, graphs, and black-and-white and color photographs. This major work, written by authors who are preeminent in their fields, should prove a standard reference for many years to come. Copious references, extensive index, strong binding. Highly recommended." CHOICE
"...a valuable contribution, perhaps one that is destined for life as long and useful as that of its classical predecessors." Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research
