As such, M ing hydrology and climatology into a unified the book would be useful to those with extended framework using a process-oriented methodology. At- k nowledge in climatolog y/meteorolog y but w it h mospheric and terrestrial processes are described and minimal background in hydrolog y (or vice versa) related based on energy, mass, and moisture transport who wish to ba lance their k nowledge of Earth– processes within the context of the hydro- atmosphere interactions using a qualita- logic cycle, which allows for a more robust tive approach. and continuous discussion of hydroclimate The book would be most suitable for concepts and variables. This is augmented an upper-level undergraduate course in by a discussion of hydroclimate in terms of Earth–atmosphere processes in a geog- climate of the first kind, which deals with r aphy or ge os c ienc e de pa r t ment .
