The sub-field of hydrology and meteorology that focuses on the water and energy transfer between the surface of land and the lower atmosphere is known as hydrometeorology. It also deals with the water cycle and water budget related problems. It is concerned with the determination of rainfall possibilities, region and time distribution of rainfall, and evaporation. Hydrometeorology emphasizes on determining the connection between meteorological variables and the maximum precipitation that reaches the land. It helps in flood control and designing water-usage structures such as dams and reservoirs. This book elucidates the concepts and innovative models around prospective developments with respect to hydrometeorology. Coherent flow of topics, student-friendly language and extensive use of examples make this book an invaluable source of knowledge. The various studies that are constantly contributing towards advancing technologies and evolution of this field are examined in detail.
