Hydrology : the changing paradigm

Auteur :
CLIFFORD, N.J.

Description :
Hydrology is an established twentieth-century environmental science, whose content is necessarily interdisciplinary (biology, physics, chemistry, geomorphology and, increasingly, the social environmental sciences such as planning, economics and political conflict resolution). The 1980s and early 1990s saw debates concerning the scientific credentials of hydrology. While some argued that the nature and pace of human modification of the water cycle, together with the enormous expansion in the technologies of data capture and manipulation, were enough to warrant a change in philosophy within the subject, others emphasized caution and the need to retrench around core basic science, and to reduce reliance on mathematical modelling.
