Water circulation or water cycle is the central aspect of hydrology. It is concerned with how water circulates across the Earth through various pathways. This book unravels the recent studies in the field of hydrology. Different approaches, evaluations, methodologies and advanced studies have been included herein. Those in search of information to further their knowledge will be assisted by this book.
