Advances in Hydroscience, Volume 1 considers the physical theories and mathematical analyses of a broad spectrum of specialized subjects in various branches of hydroscience, including hydrodynamics, hydrology, hydrochemistry, hydrophysics, hydrobiology, hydrometeorology, oceanology, hydrogeology, naval science, and water resources. This book contains five chapters, and begins with a presentation of scientific and engineering advances in the field of sonar and hydroelasticity. The following chapter deals with the fundamental principles and concepts of statistical hydrodynamics in porous media and their significance in various engineering applications. These topics are followed by a discussion on the concepts of theoretical incompressible fluid dynamics, with a special emphasis on the field of hydroballistics. The last chapter provides first a brief introduction to the basic principles and fundamental equations of well hydraulics, followed by a survey of its importance to water economy in arid and semiarid regions of the world. This book will be of great value to research workers and practitioners in the interdisciplinary field of hydroscience.
