    Elementary Engineering Hydrology is a textbook for undergraduate and diploma students of civil engineering. It provides a comprehensive coverage of all the essential aspects of hydrology. To make it easy for students to grasp the concepts, all important topics have been divided into sub-topics, lending clarity to the subject matter. The text is interspersed with numerous figures and tables, and a wide range of solved problems to illustrate the underlying concepts and techniques effectively. Simple and comprehensible for beginners in the course, this book also contains a host of additional information, by way of appendices, including India's National Water Policy, water resources of India and also a guide to using survey maps. These features of the book will make it an invaluable reference book for practicing engineers as well.
