Looking for hydrologic laws The search for regularities in hydrologic relationships is discussed against the background of the general types of predictive models used in science.

Abstract

The search for regularities in hydrologic relationships is discussed against the background of the general types of predictive models used in science. The various approaches to the study of water are compared and contrasted. The ideas discussed are illustrated by examples from the development of techniques in flood hydrology and by personal conclusions on the sources for new hypotheses in flood hydrology and the possibility of their verification.
