|Dr. Hong's new book was published by CRC Press, December 2014.|
The book begins by describing basic hydrological principles and introduces the concepts of radar technologies. It then moves into hydrologic models, methods for depth-duration curves and flash flood guidance, and prediction systems design. Case studies are given to provide the reader with real-world applications of this important tool. The book guides readers to understand real prediction systems and gives them the knowledge to design their own systems.
