Hydroclimatology provides a systematic structure for analysing how the climate system causes time and space variations both global and local in the hydrologic cycle. Changes in the relationship between the climate system and the hydrologic cycle underlie floods, drought and possible future influences of global warming on water resources. Land-based data, satellite data, and computer models contribute to our understanding of the complex time and space variations of physical processes shared by the climate system and the hydrologic cycle.
Blending key information from the fields of climatology and hydrology – which are not often found in a single volume – this is an ideal textbook for students in atmospheric science, hydrology, Earth and environmental science, geography, and environmental engineering. It is also a useful reference for academic researchers in these fields. Read more Read less. Discover Prime Book Box for Kids. Kindle Cloud Reader Read instantly in your browser. Editorial Reviews Review “Hydroclimatology: Perspectives and Applications is a comprehensive introductory volume to an interdisciplinary science dedicated to understanding the dynamic between atmospheric and terrestrial water.
In a time when concerns are mounting about the future impacts of global climate change on water resources and atmospheric hazard potential, and with the understanding of water vapor as the most abundant global-warming gas, this book provides the framework for those individuals interested in pursuing research in this increasingly important field. The author correctly illustrates the need for further research to refine global climate models by assessing inherent uncertainty.
Through a broad review of data-gathering techniques, fundamental hydrology principles, spatial and temporal variations, and extreme hazardous events, Marlyn Shelton’s book would serve as the ideal primary text in an upper-division undergraduate course in hydroclimatology. Marlyn Shelton’s book would serve as the ideal primary text in an upper-division undergraduate course in hydroclimatology. Shelton’s book is well thought-out, well written, and well executed.
Since there are few, if any, other stand-alone volumes that deal with the concept of hydroclimatology as a unified discipline, it is difficult to compare with existing works.

As it stands, however, the process-oriented discussions of hydroclimate topics make this book a step above other related qualitative reference books in hydrology or climatology. This book could easily become an essential reference for a student or teacher in the Earth or atmospheric sciences, and is a must for those looking to bridge the knowledge gap between the respective disciplines. In short, for one needing qualitative descriptions of the numerous topics involved in energy, mass, and moisture transport and related processes as they relate to the Earth–atmosphere system, this book is highly recommended.
This book discusses how hydroclimatology couples sbelton information from hydrocllmatology and hydrology to examine the changes caused by the climate system in the hydrologic cycle.
Assessing the effects of this relationship on floods, drought and other water resource issues, this is a useful textbook for students in atmospheric science, hydrology, Earth sheltoh environmental science. See all Editorial Reviews.

Hydroclimatology by Marlyn L. Shelton (ebook)
Not mathematically intimidating and a good treatment. I wish water managers at the local, state and country level thought this way compared to “go get more”. This is a big treatment. Even understanding the subject it will take a while to get through it all – and will work as a handy reference to refer to from time to time. One person found this helpful.
