Amazon.com Description

Water is everywhere - its physics and chemistry, rain, evaporation, infiltration, underground, the intimate relationship between life and water, and other natural phenomena. Its effects and applications need to be understood: run-off, erosion, soil drainage and irrigation.

These comprise the main themes of the book. This text provides practical solutions and techniques presented in manageable units, covering the many subjects needed for an understanding of the ways of water and its uses. The book complements and extends the introductory volume to soil and water conservation in this series, "Vanishing Land and Water".
