Abstract

Flow and Transport in the Natural Environment: Ad- mixing to be a diffusion process without local fluc- vances and Applications. W. L. Steffen and O. T. tuations in water velocity. The conclusion, common to this entire section, is that in a non-ideal (het- Denmead, eds. 1988. 384 pp. $69.00. hard- bound. Springer-Verlag New York, Inc. erogeneous, nonuniform, anisotropic) system, the limiting step in the analysis is the lack of good quan- titative experimental data. The volume arises from an international symposium on "Flow and Transport in the Natural Environment," An excellent tour of the progress in dealing with held in Canberra, Australia, in September 1987. Un- non-saturated flows is provided by J. R. Philip and like many books generated from specialized confer- rapporteur C. C. Raats. Both point to the difficulty in ences or workshops, this book contains 13 in-depth unsaturated flow where solutions tend to be soil spe- cific requiring empirical knowledge of the particular review papers in five areas: subsurface flow, canopy hydrological characteristics. Neither, however, leave and air-surface interface processes, flow over obsta- the nonspecialist reader with a clear view of where cles, convection in the lower atmosphere, and pro- we stand with respect to theory
