About this book

Permafrost Hydrology systematically elucidates the roles of seasonally and perennially frozen ground on the distribution, storage and flow of water. Cold regions of the World are subject to mounting development which significantly affects the physical environment. Climate change, natural or human-induced, reinforces the impacts. Knowledge of surface and ground water processes operating in permafrost terrain is fundamental to planning, management and conservation. This book is an indispensable reference for libraries and researchers, an information source for practitioners, and a valuable text for training the next generations of cold region scientists and engineers.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book could be suitable for upper-level undergraduate students, graduate students, researchers, and practitioners interested in permafrost or cold region earth science in general. … this is an excellent book on permafrost hydrology. It is impressive for its comprehensive and systematic coverage, and unique for the presentation of field data and explanation of concepts at a proper level. I believe this book will become an invaluable reference for many for years to come.” (Shemin Ge, Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research, Vol. 45 (4), 2013)

“This book by Hok Woo deals with hydrological applications for a fairly extensive area in the Northern Hemisphere with predominantly continental and Arctic climates. … I would endorse the purchase of this book by a wide range of readers; it is general enough for non-professional hydrologists, but still has enough depth for the professionals. … it is the best book available for a senior-level undergraduate or graduate level course on the hydrology of cold regions.” (Douglas L. Kane, Arctic, Vol. 65 (4), December, 2012)
