    A very nice overview of many of the main hydrologic functions I read this book for a class, but I thought it was excellent Reads quickly, explains things in a way many people can understand, but still has enough technical detail for those of us who need it Highly recommended.

    Read this a long time ago, but remember thinking it was a readable and fascinating introduction to water from a naturalist s perspective.
