One approach to the introduction of computational material to the classroom is to supplement a textbook with modern computer codes. Unfortunately most codes are expensive, designed for commercial use, without source code and may require special software. Visual Hydrology provides a cheaper and simpler alternative, supplying computational exercises that can be fully assimilated by students, and allowing them to activate, understand and reproduce modern computer code. 

Visual Hydrology aims to:

  • explain the structure of modern object-oriented computer code               
  • provide the source code for worked examples               
  • numerically check the worked examples used in text               
  • show how worked examples can be used with alternative data               
  • describe and reference the underlying theory               
  • provide additional exercises with each worked example               
  • use Microsoft Excel software alone

Requiring only a basic knowledge of Microsoft Excel, this Primer teaches the use of modern and readily-available computer code for engineering computation. Visual Hydrology demonstrates codes for common and practical examples used in hydrological engineering, and will be a valuable resource to students, research workers and consulting engineers in the water-related sector.
