Radar Hydrology : Principles, Models, and Applications
This comprehensive reference is dedicated to radar hydrology. After a brief introduction to radar, the book moves into advanced radar principles and applications. Particular attention is given to the processing of radar data to arrive at accurate estimates of rainfall. The book then introduces advanced radar sensing principles. It covers each component of the hydrologic cycle in detail and discusses state-of-the-art hydrologic models, including their inputs, parameters, state variables, calibration procedures, and outputs. The book also introduces contemporary approaches in data assimilation and concludes with methods, case studies, and prediction systems design. MATLAB® downloads will be available.
