CABI Book Chapter

Forest hydrology: processes, management and assessment.

Book cover for Forest hydrology: processes, management and assessment.


This new book with 17 chapters is unique and different from the previous forest hydrology books in that world-renowned international professors, scientists, engineers, managers and researchers with a long background and expertise in forest hydrology, management and applications have authored/contributed individual chapters focused on almost all aspects of forest hydrology. Chapters 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, ...


Chapter 2 (Page no: 17)

Forest runoff processes.

This chapter examines present understanding of two simple questions posed by observers of forests: (1) where does the water go when it rains?; and (2) where does the water in the stream come from?
